Our staff is hard at work preparing for Summer 2021 and cannot wait to see your family this summer! Although the pandemic is still a significant obstacle in our lives, the last 10 months of living with and navigating a known entity gives us the data and guidance needed to confidently operate a Gate Hill quality, in-person experience this summer. So, grab the sunscreen, make some alone-time plans, Gate Hill will be open in 2021 for your kids!
We are methodical about our decision making and planning. Several factors will guide our approach to in-person programming this summer, such as the New York State guidance, the American Camp Association, the CDC and the successful on-grounds family programs we were able to operate in 2020. One adjustment already in process is the creation of on-grounds, indoor rainy-day locations for all of our groups this summer. This will prevent rainy-day cancellations and the need to expose our campers to out of camp facilities unnecessarily.
Here are some other Gate Hill norms you can anticipate for Summer 2021*:
- Camp lunch served daily.
- Bus transportation to and from camp.
- Recreational swim and swim instruction every day!
- A full day schedule filled with sports, arts, STEM, nature, and more.
- Spirited GHDC traditions such as the outdoor Gaga Madness, Buddy Notes, Friday Pool Parties, Carnival and so much more! View our 2021 Camp Calendar.
- The love and care that you can only get from the Gate Hill Staff.
*Modified with NYS Covid-19 protocols.
Over the next several months, as the state guidance and outside factors come more into focus, we will share protocols and plans with you. When this happens, we as a community will need to come together and show respect for these COVID protocols. To help us commit to doing so, our team has come up with the Buddy's Pledge for everyone to follow, which demonstrates simple guidelines we ask you to commit to in order to keep our community safe.
If you have any questions or needs, please reach out and speak with me directly. Our entire team truly cannot wait to bring the magic of Gate Hill to your family this summer. We look forward to seeing you all soon.
