Before we begin, Cassidy Morris has been working with Avid4 Adventure since 2018 where she started as a day camp instructor working with kids ages 3 - 13. She has since worked as the Operations Supervisor in Denver, helped with online programs and regularly contributes to our blog. We encourage you to read this letter from Cassidy with your child and use this time as an opportunity to check in with them to see how they are doing.
In the United States and across the world, the summer camp industry was hit incredibly hard due to COVID-19. Approximately 62% of summer camps had to close in 2020 and some may never open back up again. Fortunately, due to our entire headquarters team quickly jumping into action and some extraordinary leadership, we were still able to serve our mission to empower kids to get outdoors while keeping campers and staff safe.
For most of us, the Coronavirus, COVID-19 has derailed our normal routines and everyday lives. And it’s so easy to get caught up in the pandemonium, letting fear and anxiety take control. Your kids might even pick up on your feelings of worry and start to feel the same way.
