Governor Charlie Baker has extended the Stay-At-Home advisory until Monday, May 18 due to the novel coronavirus. Schools have also been shut down for the remainder of the 2019-2020 academic year. COVID-19 has turned our world upside down for the last seven weeks, with quite a few more to go. However, the SouthCoast is already looking to the Summer of 2020 to feel somewhat “normal” again. That said, the YMCA is working to reimagine what Summer Camp 2020 could look like.

Kate Levin is the Membership and Marketing Director at YMCA SOUTHCOAST. She sheds some light on what they are doing to figure out the new operation. “We designed a survey to help us understand what families in our community need, want, and are concerned about for the remaining camp sessions.”

The data collected from the Summer Camp 2020 Survey will help YMCA SOUTHCOAST determine how to shape the new structure. “We know this year's camps are likely to look a little different and we want to be sure that we are working toward addressing the needs and concerns of our community," says Levin. “All input is valuable!”

YMCA SOUTHCOAST sent a note out to all of their members requesting them to fill out the survey. This information is vital to building a program that they can feel confident in. “We are currently exploring every option to adapt our incredible summer camp programs to the ‘new normal’. The safety and wellbeing of our campers, their families, and our staff remain our top priority.” YMCA SOUTHCOAST invites all SouthCoast residents to fill in their input.
