We thought we would share a few articles with you regarding sending your child to camp. Whether it’s the first time or not, it’s important we get our campers into the right mindset to attend camp, especially during the midst of what we hope is the tailend of this pandemic.
Remember, this summer we have both day and overnight options when you choose a session. We will cater your child’s experience around what you need.
Throughout these uncertain times, you and your family have been on my mind, and I hope you are all safe and well. As many of you know I walk the grounds here at the camp several times a day with Spencer (our camp pup). Each day I remind myself of something to be thankful for and each day I acknowledge how grateful I am to be working and living among all of you.
I have held off communicating with you so that you can focus on your family during this unusual time. I am in awe of the energy and enthusiasm that teachers and service providers everywhere have shown as they work tirelessly to bring learning into your home. Our first responders, health care providers, food service workers and countless behind the scene essential warriors have been going above and beyond to get us through these trying days and the many more to come our way.
Camp Pa-Qua-Tuck is closely monitoring the COVID-19 pandemic and we are committed to making sure our employees and guests of the Camp are safe. We understand there is a lot of uncertainty with regards to the new Coronavirus, COVID-19 and we are closely following mandates from the Department of Health, Center for Disease Control and World Health Organization.
Summer is an amazing opportunity for all children, especially those with a disability to experience freedom and get away from the confines of school and home. Camp offers a unique learning environment meant to foster individual growth and enhance self awareness. It’s a place where they can feel free to be themselves and find others to develop friendships with.
Summer camp is a safe, caring and unique environment prime for active learning on multiple levels: personal, social, physical and emotional. Even kids who struggle to learn in other settings often succeed at camp, including kids with attention deficit disorders and other mental disabilities. With its powerful potential to impact children in a positive way, camp promotes a strong carryover into other areas of life including work, home and school.
