The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have recently released summer camp guidelines to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Besides good hygiene and testing for COVID -19 symptoms each day, they offer suggestions to camps for how the camp day should be structured. The CDC says that camps should encourage social distancing through increased spacing, maintain small groups, and limited mixing between groups. They also recommend staggered scheduling, arrival, and drop off. Summer camps are to also adjust activities and procedures to limit sharing of items such as toys, belongings, supplies, and equipment. Do you think camps should be open this summer using these guidelines? Will they be successful in stopping the spread of COVID-19 or do you think it is too risky to send children to summer camp this year?
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) have just released their new guidelines for camp directors pertaining to children attending summer camp during the COVID-19 pandemic.

A recent study showed that for children who do not have any siblings, having a pet helps them develop greater self-esteem and improved empathy. These children also participate more in physical and social activities. Adopting a pet from your local shelter you will not only save a life, but they will save your family as well.

As a society, we tend to feel obligated to fill every hour of our children’s days with activities. Physical and creative outlets such as sports, art, theater and music are something every child needs, however not at the expense of their education. If school is suffering due to lack of homework and study time because of outside activities, some activities should be cut. Education must be the priority.
Choose books that are fun and interesting. Now is the chance to read about exciting topics that are not covered in school that kids love. Some examples include favorite wrestlers, astronomy, sports stars, UFO’s, Loch Ness Monster, Bigfoot and unsolved mysteries.
You hit home runs not by chance but by preparation.
