We hope this message finds you well during this unprecedented national emergency and we hope you are following the CDC and NY or NJ guidelines to protect yourself and your family.
At this time, the Girls Quest (GQ) Board and Senior Camp Staff want to provide you with a brief update regarding GQ’s Camp for the coming summer.
Since the health and safety of campers and camp staff has always been our highest priority, we are carefully observing health events and conditions as New York State continues to bear the brunt of the Coronavirus pandemic.
We are regulated by the Department of Health (DOH). Though we are continuing to prepare Camp for 50 girls this August, GQ will follow the mandates they establish in regards to conducting Camp this summer. As of the date of this post, they have not made any decision.
Girls Quest also follows the guidelines of the American Camp Association (ACA). They have also not provided any specific instructions for camp for this summer.
Following the guidance from the DOH and ACA, we will proceed with all due caution when making a decision regarding Camp 2020. We will inform you as soon as possible when such a decision is made. Until then, we will continue to monitor the situation and share monthly updates.
Please check our Facebook page and website (girlsquest.org) for these updates.
We would like to thank our first responders and healthcare workers on the frontline who are working courageously. We would also like to acknowledge the other unsung heroes who are keeping our cities and towns running.
