Dear Campers and Families,

Hello! We have missed all of you, and hope this letter finds you in good health and good spirits. Please know that 4-H Camp Wyomoco is committed to the well-being of our campers, families and team members. We are in regular communication with our COVID-19 Team at Cornell University, along with the NYS Department of Health office and the American Camp Association in regard to the COVID-19 pandemic.

On February 17th, 2021, Governor Andrew Cuomo announced that day and overnight summer camps in New York State may begin to plan for reopening. The NYS Department of Health is expected to issue specific reopening guidance, including details on timing and capacities, at a later date. We are currently reviewing all potential options for the coming season, as we examine our health response, pandemic safety plan, and cleaning procedures. We anticipate making a final decision regarding 4-H Camp Wyomoco’s reopening by mid-March. We will issue a statement regarding camp’s status on March 19th, after our team and Board have reviewed all available local and state guidance.

In the event that 4-H Camp Wyomoco makes the decision to cancel a session or multiple sessions of camp, any registrations from the previous season or sponsored camperships will be swiftly refunded. Please don’t hesitate to contact our office if you have any questions or concerns regarding registration or the upcoming camp season.

For accurate information on how you can protect your family right now, we suggest resources found at NYS Department of Health and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

We are committed to keeping you updated on any changes in our plans, policies, or procedures. If you have any questions or concerns you are welcome to contact us via email or phone. Please be aware that as of 3/18/2020, employees are working on a rotating office schedule, and it may take a little longer than usual for you to receive a response. Please know that your questions and concerns are incredibly important to us, and that we will respond as soon as possible.

Thank you for your continued support of 4-H Camp Wyomoco. We look forward to an amazing summer and year. See you soon!
