Texans are glowing with new hope for a vibrant 2020 summer camp season! On May 18, Governor Abbott announced the second phase of safely and strategically reopening the state by allowing Texas summer camps, youth sports, daycares, and bars to ramp up operations. Yes, COVID-19 has thrown a lot of wrenches into the works, but as Abbott said himself:
The COVID-19 crisis has launched a temporary, socially-distanced way of life. Extra precautions at camp will be both wise and appreciated by your loyal families. But what if camp is delayed? What if on-site activities have to be canceled altogether?
By the time the summer camp 2020 season arrives, many parents and children will have been cooped up in social distancing and self-isolation for months. The open-aired freedom of your program is a welcome dream for stir-crazy camp families. We all hope it can become a reality, too.
Summer is an exciting time for kids, as school gives way to freedom and the prospect of going off to a camp. Nowadays, there is an ever-growing variety of camp options ranging from traditional choices to sport or activity focused experiences, such as horseback riding or junior chef camps. For parents, the wide array of options can prove to be difficult to choose from.
