Kings Bay Y
Letter from the Director
Greetings Camp Families!
As we prepare to embark on our Summer Camp 2021 journey, we think a moment of reflection is appropriate. Summer Camp 2020 was like none other. With the COVID-19 virus making its way into our everyday lives in March of 2020, it became apparent that camp and more importantly life as we knew it would be changed for the foreseeable future. After weeks of deliberation and many long internal discussions (on Zoom of course!) the decision was made that we at the Kings Bay Y/JCC Brooklyn would begin the journey of attempting to bring a sense of normality to our families by opening our Summer Camp Programs; and we are so glad we did!
Although COVID-19 was like nothing we have ever experienced in our lifetime, we as a community came together to combat the barriers created as a result of the virus. Using the CDC and local & state governing regulations as our constantly changing guidelines, we put forth a program which allowed for many children and their families to once again put on a smiling face. “Fun” would again become a part of our daily vocabulary, with incredible activities such as swimming, arts & crafts, improv, sports, science, biking, water activities, bowling, and education offered within a safe space.
Looking to build off the success of camp 2020, where we are proud to announce that there was not a single reported confirmed case of COVID-19, we think our plan for camp 2021 will be even more exciting now that we have last years’ experience on the record.
With this said, we are thrilled to announce the official kick-off of Summer Camp 2021 registration! Our office team has been prepping for weeks, and are eager to explain how operations will be handled understanding that the world situation is still fluid.
Additionally, now is the time to act, as our early bird discount (expiring February 15th, 2021) is at its highest offer, only requiring a $100 deposit to ensure enrollment! (All camp fees refundable before June 1st, 2021) We also have a special loyalty discount for our returning families!
Again, none of this would be possible without the support and commitment of our incredible families and team. With camp being just a few short months away, we cannot wait to show you the surprises we have up our sleeves this year!
Looking forward to once again creating positive memories that last a lifetime.
Our coolest regards (because it’s summer),
KBY/JCC Brooklyn Summer Camp Team
