We know that for many of you, Wayfinder is a space that provides much of the joy and tenderness that you try and take into the world. The opportunity and ability to create a space that has offered that for so many people over the years is something that we treasure. We are incredibly heartbroken to not be able to offer camp this summer, but very excited to explore new opportunities online where we get to continue to bring our community together.
With worries about Covid-19 on everyone’s mind, we here at The Wayfinder Experience want to let you know where we are with all of this. Our number one concern is and always has been the health and safety of campers and staff and we always start with compliance with the NY State Department of Health and either Ulster (day camps) or Putnam (overnight camps) County Departments of Health. This is not at all new; camp Operating Permits are issued by the local Health Departments and we have always not only followed their rules and complied with their requirements, but have also sought their input on any camp health related matter. As of late May, our analysis of the situation has brought us, sadly, to the conclusion that we can not run in-person summer camps safely this year.
