I know some people that went up. Itís a bad idea. I donít need to explain why.
Maybe you should. Because lots of people donít see the problem with traveling to a summer home or the like and isolating there

Seems to me that it would work better than in the tight quarters of the city.

Are they going shopping there?

They don't see a problem for themselves? Or they don't see a problem for the communities they are going to "isolate" in?

On the contrary. It looks like Sullivan County is disinclined to let it happen, which is why the camps are lobbying so hard.

That's what Pesach programs also said until the 11th hour.

I hear, but R senter got permission for his yeshiva to open in Pennsylvania, might not be so far fetched

All the big camps started charging. I think its safe to say that in 2 months, things can be worked out to make it safe.

Charging is the easy part. Even Pesach programs figured out how to charge.
It's the refunding that's tricky.

Some kids might not be interested in camp with no trips and other restrictions.

Let's hope this doesn't happen because we could be looking at situations where camps would have to go bankrupt if they started preparing for camp and had to stop abruptly at the 11th hour.

Most camps stopped charging and only continued now. They all are charging knowing that they may have to refund. (Heard this from 4 camp head directors)

Side Note: I was the one to put the charges on hold and the one to restart them.

I am sure there will be lots of kids that will jump at the opportunity to go away and be able interact with friends and play sports.

If you watch his video, he says that for the first 14 days - minimum, every person will have their own room, and he is taking over an 11-building, 35-acre campus. How realistic will it be to provide every camper with his own room for 2 weeks?
