I heard 2nd hand from an administrator, that Coumo gave a heads-up today, that he"ll be announcing soon "no camps".
Theyr'e looking for places like PA or VT. Some already booked.

YSP Morristown sent this to parents:

Dear Parents,
For the last 39 years כן ירבו, YSP has been the premier summer program for Talmidim leaving eighth grade and entering Mesivta. Bez"H this year we will be entering its Shnas Ho'arboyim!  Parents, staff, and last but not least, the Talmidim, are all anxiously awaiting to for an update.
As previously communicated, we were waiting to hear from the state of New Jersey regarding whether we will be allowed to open our grounds. This week, the governor announced that as of now, only day camps will be granted permission to open.
We are therefore exploring our options, and are looking into a variety of camp grounds in locations that will allow us to operate safely and still give the full YSP experience.
 
The transitional time between elementary school and Mesivta has traditionally been spent in YSP and has BH made a lasting impact on so many Bochurim. We look forward to be able to continue the tradition, no matter where we will be located.
 
We understand that everyone needs to know details very soon. We hope to be able to update you very shortly with good news.  At this time, we need to hear from you regarding this change and your current application in order to help with planning this new development. Please complete this short form ASAP.
Update: they're opening in PA
Always looking for a good MS method... PM suggestions 😊

I heard from the son of a camp director that Cuomo told them Tuesday (I think morning) that he will announce within 48 hours that they can't open. Seemed pretty certain then but maybe something changed since. This director is already looking for private individuals to rent space in his camp over the summer.
But as I wrote on DDMS, this might just be a very elaborate color-war breakout...

Cuomo didnt tell them anything by the meetings  they were just assuming

If it's not free shipping it's not worth it.

It makes no sense to allow day camps where kids are going home and coming in contact with others and not allow sleep away camps where everyone is basically in a bubble, but welcome to freaken New York....
