Camp Paivika 2021 Program Update
Hello Camp Paivika Campers, Families and Friends,
At AbilityFirst Camp Paivika, we take great pride in the relationships we build and maintain with you – our campers and their circles of support. As you have often heard from us, the health and safety of all who visit Camp Paivika is always our first priority and guides all decisions to ensure we maintain the trust that you place in us to provide safe and meaningful programs.
It is with this in mind that we have come to the conclusion that due to the nature of our program, facilities and needs of ALL of our campers, we cannot safely hold in person, overnight camp this summer. There are many reasons for this difficult decision. Among them are the restrictions on large gatherings, the difficulty in enforcing all Covid-19 precautions with our camper population and the unknown effects of COVID-19 with a medically vulnerable camper population. In addition, we are still awaiting state and county guidelines on reopening – necessary information for us to be able to move forward in any way.
Current Registrations and Refunds
All camp registrations for 2021 (which were made for 2020) will be canceled at this time and all fees refunded. Over the next few weeks, we will be contacting families with the details of the refund process. In lieu of receiving a refund, please consider donating your deposit/fees back to camp to help support our virtual summer program for 2021.
Camp Paivika @ Home 2021
We are happy to announce that we will once again be providing a 3 month long virtual summer program starting in June and ending in August. Thanks to the generosity of our many donors, this program will be offered free of charge and open to all campers who are currently registered for the 2021 camp season and any camper who has participated in our monthly Camp Paivika @ Home club program. More details to come soon!
Though we will be missing another summer at beautiful Camp Paivika, we want you to know that we are already planning our “Best Summer Ever!” Paivika Reunion Party when we are again able to safely come together in person at this most special place. In the meantime, we look forward to sharing this summer with you all and have a lot of great plans to make our time together “Zoom” with fun and laughter like only Paivika can do!
See you soon!
Kelly and your Paivika @ Home Team
