Summer Camp News from Adirondack Woodcraft Camps
Apr 24, 2020
Dear Woodcraft Friends & Family,
We miss you! We hope you remain safe and well and we continue to send you some of the peace and beauty we are so lucky to benefit from here at Woodcraft while we all await news about moving forward. I was going to say “patiently await,” but that would not have been true! We are chomping at the bit. In that spirit, let’s get right to camp questions and news:
- Woodcraft’s 3rd Annual Work Weekend is postponed. Our Work Weekend date of May 1-3 is not in line with the New York on Pause guidelines (due to be lifted until May 15th.) We will keep you posted regarding an alternative date!
- Will Woodcraft open this summer? We cannot imagine a summer without camp and we continue to work diligently to prepare for a safe, fun and much needed 2020 summer camp season. As parents ourselves, we consider our campers and camp families our second family. With that in mind, you can count on us to open camp only if it is deemed safe and it is sensible. We are currently awaiting guidelines from the CDC, the New York State Department of Health, and the American Camp Association to determine just that. Our local health department has been very responsive about our questions thus far and we hope to have specific information for you about the opening of camp by the beginning of May. Thank you for your patience and please keep reaching out to us with any questions or thoughts. We are here for you!
- Stay in touch with us via our social media pages on Facebook and Instagram if you are able. Yesterday, to celebrate Earth Day, we posted a great mindfulness Adirondack Woodcraft Camps Nature Activity for all ages that we think you will enjoy!
- We would like to bring a Woodcraft Sunday Campfire to you! All campers, staff members and Woodcrafters past and present are encouraged to send us a video of a great skit, song, campfire story, dance or joke to . Thank you in advance for contributing and we will let you know when we will bring our special Woodcraft campfire to you.
Wishing you a wonderful beginning to your weekend. To return the virtue of patience to our household, we plan to take Ralph Waldo Emerson's advice and "adapt to the pace of nature" by getting out on a great hike. Apparently, nature's pace is patience! We will let you know how it goes and since we know so many of you are not able to get out and enjoy the wilderness, we'll be sure to send pictures so you can envision yourself in the beautiful Adirondacks.
