Another but similar thing I was wondering, should be a different thread but I'll add it here:
Will seminaries in E"Y be open next year ( September 2020)?
There is another thread

I heard that Gan Israel Montreal, one of largest Lubavitch camps formally notified parents that they will not be opening.
Any source for that? From their website it looks like it's on (so far).

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



what does Gd runs the world have to do anything? Wasnít he running the World when the virus came in the first place??

+10000000

It's good to know that have someone with inside information...

Any info about when/what to buy in the market?

Yes and some people are blind. Now even the atheists are starting to say 'Etzba Elokim Hi'

And he camps are a go? How about schools opening? Any update on that?

Just checked with them. They received an email that is now being rumored as inauthentic. So I take that back.

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.

Received an update that CGI Montreal not opening was inauthentic information.

How can they do that? Donít the colonies and camps pay the same property tax as the year-round residents?

Probably only camps are on the chopping block. Donít think a colony receives a CO every year.

Sure colonies are affected. Think day camps permits, pool permits and Shul permits.
