Summer Camp Update – June 4, 2020

We are pleased to inform you that we will be moving forward with our summer camp. Governor Cuomo has given the green light for summer camps beginning June 29th and it is our intention to offer camp from June 29th through July 31st, Monday through Friday, from 9:00 am – 3:00 pm.

Our number one goal will be to maintain the health and safety of our campers and staff within the context of fun and engaging activities. In order to do this, we are consulting with an Infectious Disease specialist, studying the summer camp guidelines set forth by the CDC and reaching out to other schools and organizations that are moving forward with summer camp for ideas on best practices.

We are accepting Registration Forms only at this time. Payment will be collected at a later date. Thank you for your interest in summer camp at Mountain Laurel Waldorf School!
