Camp Paivika @ Home

Starts June 1, 2020

Dear Campers and Families,

Being a part of the Camp Paivika Family connects us in a way that is unique and lasting. Currently, with all the uncertainty in the world we know how important connections like ours are.

At AbilityFirst Camp Paivika, our number one priority is always the safety and well being of our campers and staff. With much consideration and based on the recommendations of the State of California and the Department of Public Health, we have made the very difficult decision that we will not be able to host campers on site this summer. There has been a great deal of thought put into making this decision and we know that this announcement will bring disappointment. We share in your feelings.

Introducing! Camp Paivika @ Home
Every Paivikan knows the meaning of the “PAIVIKA SPIRIT” and we often say that even though we may leave Paivika, Paivika never leaves us. That is why this summer we will be  bringing Camp Paivika to you!! Camp Paivika @ Home will be a dynamic weekly program that campers can enjoy Monday through Friday. The great news is that you will be able to enjoy Camp Paivika @ Home all summer long and free of charge. We will be offering a weekly schedule of activities which will be a combination of pre-recorded videos, live interactive activities, events and chats, as well as activities that can be downloaded and printed to enjoy whenever you like. Please be sure that your camper watches the YouTube Video message which is directed to them.

Please take a moment to click on this brief survey link so that we can do our best to meet your needs as we look to building a new virtual Camp Paivika experience this summer.  https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/CampPaivikaAtHome

Good News for Next Summer 2021
To ease some of the burden of camp registration, we are offering you the option of keeping your current camp spot and deposit in place for next summer. You will automatically be transferred into the same session (the dates may vary slightly, and we will let you know about that later) for 2021. If you would prefer to cancel your spot for next summer, just let us know and we will take care of that for you, including refunding your deposit and fees paid, upon request.

You will receive a follow up call from one of the Camp Paivika Team over the next couple of weeks. We will be reaching out to check in, answer any questions and verify your interest in transferring your registration for next summer. As we are all working from home, you may not recognize our phone numbers, but we will leave a call back number in case we miss you.

We have created a special video message from me geared specifically to our campers. Please click on this link to watch!

For 73 years, Camp Paivika has facilitated the most amazing summer programs for people of all ages, abilities and backgrounds. Although we may not be together here at camp this summer, Camp Paivika is still here and as strong as ever. We will get through this together and look forward to seeing you through Camp Paivika @ Home.

With a grateful heart to be a part of such a wonderful family-

Warmly,

Kelly Kunsek
