Dear Sewataro family,
Hello and happy Spring! It’s a beautiful day in the neighborhood, and we are getting so excited for summer – only 80 days and counting! After the year we’ve all had, it feels like hope is finally on the horizon, and…so is CAMP!! The year round team has now all received our first dose of the vaccine, and perhaps some of you have already received at least one dose as well. (Thrilling, isn’t it?!) We’re busy gearing up for the 62nd season of Sewataro awesomeness, and cannot wait to see our amazing campers again! In the meantime…we’ve got lots of updates to share, so pull up a log, make yourself a s’more, and let’s get to it!
With warmth and best wishes for a healthy, happy, and sunny Spring,
Amy, Emmy, Jeannine, Ciaran, and Cheryl
The A-Z of COVID Updates!
The State has just released its most recent guidelines for summer camps, (we expect at least one more revised edition prior to June), and here is what we know at this point:
There are many things that are out of our control these days, but what we do know for certain is this: Our campers are in for a fantastic Sewataro summer! We’ll continue to keep you updated as new information becomes available.
Regarding Covid vaccines…
As you’ve likely heard, the vaccine will be available to all people 16 and older, beginning April 19th. Getting the COVID-19 vaccine gives you an added layer of protection against COVID-19 and could also protect your family from potential exposure. We’ve encouraged our staff members to get the vaccine, and many already have!
Pre-register now to be notified when it’s your turn to schedule an appointment at one of the state mass vaccination sites. (CVS and Walgreens also offer free Covid vaccines by appointment.) To find out more information about the vaccine, check out the CDC website here.
We are pleased to announce that we will be adding some additional activities this summer, most notably a full time movement program for all Bear and Eagle campers, and some exciting new sports options, like flag football and ultimate frisbee for older groups. We hope these changes (and some strategic scheduling) will lead to a more dynamic, balanced experience for all groups moving forward. Program Supervisor Extraordinaire Brian Grigsby has been on the scene, and he, Ciaran and Renee have been cooking up some plans for expanding our Fox camp offerings, as well. Details to follow!
And finally, a word about Camper Physicals, from Nurse Gail…
Physical forms can only be accepted when they meet the following criteria:
This form is often called a “School and Camp Form”; NOT a health summary or after visit summary.
