Hello Camp,

I’m here to deliver some sad news.

Myself, and our board of trustees have decided that it is in the best interest of our campers, their families and our staff to cancel all weeks of our 2020 camp season.

The health and safety of our campers and their families has always been priority number one at camp. Before we can jump in the pond for polar bear dip, before we can hear the sound of a paddleball collide
with a hard wooden paddle, before we can sing and dance and share a meal together in our lodge- we need to ensure the safety of our community.

Camp Leslie is a family, and family members take care of one another.

The arrival at this decision has been a lengthy and difficult process, using all available guidance from the American Camp Association, CDC, Massachusetts department of public safety, Georgetown board of health, and Camp Leslie’s own healthcare professionals.

It’s difficult to express how saddening this decision is for myself, our board, and our staff. I’m sure that you are sad too, and I’m sorry for that.

We are working to develop alternative programming, to allow our campers and staff to connect this summer. My staff and I are hard at work developing the details of this experience and connection. Sadly, that experience will not be in person. Please keep an eye out for more information in the next few weeks.

Families, please keep an eye on your email over the next few days for more information regarding the refund of camp fees.

I’d like to thank our campers, families and staff for their support, understanding and patience during this extremely challenging, unprecedented situation.

I’m sorry to have to deliver this news to you all. We miss you. Camp Leslie misses you. Camp Leslie cares, deeply, about you all.

Thank you.
