On the first day of school, back in September, I posted the countdown of 301 days until camp. Today, that countdown would have been 17 days! How things have changed.
It is with a very heavy heart that I announce we will not be running Camp Tikva this summer.
For the past 3 months we have been waiting, hoping, listening and praying for things to change and for good news. I know on the surface it seems hopeful as Ontario moves into phase two, and numbers are heading in the right direction. We were hoping to run a modified on-site program as well as a backyard camp, but there are too many restrictions, regulations and challenges that cannot be overcome. If I cannot provide an appropriate environment for the health and safety of our campers, staff and their families, then I cannot run camp this summer.
In so many ways, this was an incredibly difficult decision. However, putting the health and safety of our camp families first, made it easier.
I want to thank each of you for believing in Camp Tikva, trusting us with your amazing children and being a part of our camp family. I wish you a summer of good old-fashioned family fun! If you need any resources or ideas, I am always here for you.
Only 385 days until camp!
CAMP TIKVA COVID 19 UPDATE | May 20, 2020
I hope you are all keeping well. I know for many parents who have been homeschooling for the past 2 months, the responsibility of entertaining your children and giving them a great summer can be daunting. During this unprecedented time, we are continuing to follow the advice of Public Health. As of now, we are not sure if we will be permitted to run our day camp, and if so, what restrictions will be in place. In any event, Camp Tikva will only run if, when and how it is safe to do so.
Please continue to visit our page for updates. We are hoping to offer your children lots of fun this summer, even under these circumstances!
As always, feel free to be in touch with any questions.
All the best,
