Dear Camp Chayolei family,
We are glad to inform you that this past Friday the Governor of Pennsylvania announced that Summer camps will be allowed to opporate in the state once the county enters into “Phase Green”.
In addition, the Governor announced that the area that our camp is located will Iy”h be entering the Yellow phase this week. As a result, this means that a week or two after that, our area will enter “Phase Green”, which will confirm for us a green light to operate for this coming summer Iy”h.
We are very optimistic that with Hashem’s help, we will be able to continue to update you with good news regarding a very exciting and healthy summer at camp this year for all our campers and staff.
Due to the very spacious camp grounds that we have, we have B”H managed to create more space this summer to accommodate additional campers for this upcoming summer.
In order to limit the exposure to the virus, we have made contingency plans for exciting onsite in house entertainment to replace any scheduled trips out of camp.
We are in the process of preparing a plan based on current and forthcoming information from the health department and the CDC which includes special safety measures for this coming summer due to the virus, to help ensure a healthy summer for all campers and staff, which will be sent to all parents in the near future.
We are looking forward to a great summer together in Yerusholayim with the Moshiach.
