As per Gov
Day camp to open Jun 29
No word yet on sleepover
Can every school open as a day camp?

Or they can just schedule protests on school grounds every day from 9-4

Hair salons and barber shops (beginning on June 22nd)
Youth summer programs (beginning on July 6th)
In-person clinical research/labs

Dear Parents,

CAMP GAN ISRAEL

Parksville NY.

I hope you had a good Yom Tov. In light of the news today by the NY Governor that day camps we will be permitted to open on June 29th this summer, we are hoping to hear good news on overnight camps soon.

If we are permitted to open we understand that there will be some needed changes regarding the amount of children that we can have per bunk, as well as other changes that are not clear as of yet. Under these new circumstances in order to accommodate all those that have already registered we have decided that we will only be able to offer one month to each camper instead of a full summer. In this way we don't have to turn away any camper who has already registered due to space.

For those campers that have registered for a full summer in our regular division and BMD division we are giving you first the choice of which month you would prefer to attend. Even though we are still waiting for an answer from the Governor and it may seem premature to go through this decision with your child, it is important that you let us know your choice now so we have enough time to make the change. This will allow us to start camp on time if we get the go ahead. In the event that there will be a new start date I will let you know as soon as possible.

I thank you for your understanding and working with us.

Rabbi Yossie Futerfas

Director

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.
Always looking for a good MS method... PM suggestions 😊

I was in contact with someone from the leadership there and from the way he put it they're looking into every possible option...
