So you don't believe there will be camp... got it.
Just because the Galus will end, it doesn't mean life as we know it ends. Look at the (I believe it's) Rambam

Will camps be cancelled this year? Will people be going to bungalow colonies?

Noboby knows for sure. Would be nice if someone who directs a camp would chime in here on what is going on behind the scenes.

I heard that Gan Israel Montreal, one of largest Lubavitch camps formally notified parents that they will not be opening. Canada might be more stringent than the U.S.

In general there are many unknowns at this point, to the extent where it's impossible to make preparations for camp without risking large sums of money.

As others have mentioned, schools may consider running through the summer. Even if elementary schools don't, yeshivos might want bochurim to make up for lost time and not allow them to staff the summer camps. High school students may need to take state regents in June-August. (NYS cancelled regents, not sure about others)

We may be looking at a hybrid school/day-camp situation for elementary schools if we are out of the Covid danger by summer.

As for bungalow colonies, if schools are running, bungalow colonies are not happening. This is aside from the fact that the already fiercely anti-Semitic Sullivan County will fight tooth and nail to not allow them to open this year.

Yes I have, and for some time running a camp behind the scenes.
1. The people making the deliveries have zero to minimum contact with people on campus.
2. For the minimum contact, there are rules that can be enacted & enforced.
What about contact with others who do come in contact?
The thing with the hamster is that running on the wheel is actually what it is trying to do.

The only people who would be allowed to come onto campus from the outside is deliveries. In previous years they would have contact with the staff accepting the deliveries, but this can be eliminated by only allowing them to drop off the goods and sending the invoice via email. Yes deliveroes will have to be checked (when it's safe to) to male sure everything that was ordered was delivered and the company will have to honor any mistakes they made in the order (usually you would check it while receiving the goods while the truck is still there).

1. It will be behind us by then.
2. They say the summer will kill the virus.
3. The camp is quarantined in it self.
1. Pray tell when and why it will be gone?
2. The summer won't kill the virus. We know this for a fact because it's ravaging in places where it is summer.
3. Like the cruise ships.

Iím not saying itís a certainty that camps wonít be opening but itís certainly far from likely that they will

What happens when camp is over in middle of an outbreak?
Using your g-d given right of stupidity is an option, not a requirement. Please use sparingly.

1. Because God runs this world
2. I hear... maybe... but remember God runs this world
3. The ship was infected by people who came on and was never properly disinfected before round two

We all know that my friend. I believe the people responding are coming from a practical and realistic point of view using the data and general feel thatís out there. Thereís nothing wrong with that.

Something is going to have to open first, IMO camps would probably be high on the list because they can keep out anyone above whatever age (35, 40, 50, or 60?) who didn't test positive for COVID/antibodies, even if it means the  director can't come. There will definitely have to be changes, no trips, no guests, etc.
I wonder what people who type "u" instead of "you" do with all their free time.

And I thought people only lie about their age when it comes to shidduchim...

Don't mean to be a preacher or sound ignorant, but the situation- on a psychological basis- is as bad as we make it. The ones who come out of this victorious are those whose Emunah & Bittachon didn't remain stagnant, rather grew while doing what they can to 'Stop the Spread'

What does this have to do with being realistic when deciding whether make plans?
