They may technically be allowed to open. The question is if it will be financially worthwhile for them to do so given the draconian limitations they are likely to be subject to, which will also ruin the camp experience for many campers.

CMIIW, but most of their expenses are either already sunk (annual upkeep, taxes, etc.) or variable (if the camp is half full the food budget would be roughly cut in half) so they don't have much to lose by opening.
I wonder what people who type "u" instead of "you" do with all their free time.

You have to assume that if a camp is opening and being locked down it wont really have to be enforcing social distancing.

Unless they have to spend more to create activities to make up for those
Workflowy. You won't know what you're missing until you try it.

Agreed, the cost of bringing entertainment to camp is actually more expensive than many of the trips.

Day camps (same as school) are obviously different situation then overnight camp. But kudos to them for being realistic and not getting hopes up for nothing.

Of course the camp operators "need" to think that way until things are official one way or the other.
