Dear Beaver Lake Camp families,
Today I reached up and dusted off my hardy Naot Sandals to enjoy the spring weather. Guess what comes after spring?
…. You guessed it…. SUMMER!
Summer 2021 just might be the best summer ever!!! After a very challenging year for so many of us, Beaver Lake offers us a shimmering glimmer of tranquility and happiness. Let’s all keep praying for an end to the pandemic ushered out by a great Beaver Lake Summer.
Camp preparations are in their final stages with two plans depending on our Covid restrictions and guidelines. As for now, the Board & Parent Committee have decided that no off ground activities will take place, to insure a safe & full length summer. I am keeping up to date with the latest NY Camp Covid regulations to ensure we are following the safety protocols and balancing fun with health requirements. We will know by early June what our Covid protocol may be.
I am happy to report that 60 percent of our staff this summer hails from Beaver Lake homeowners & renters. It’s great to watch the kids move up the ranks and learn about responsibility and leadership. I look forward to watching the campers benefiting from their older siblings’ talents and skills.
