Dear PAL Families,
We hope this email finds you and your family well. During these unprecedented times, Armada PAL knows campers and parents alike are anxious about what the future holds for PAL Camp 2020. As you are aware, the Covid-19 pandemic has brought sudden change to many of our everyday lives. We hope to bring some normality back into our children’s lives, and it is our intention to hold PAL Camp this coming August.
The final decision on whether to have PAL camp will be based on applicable state and federal executive orders. We will also seek guidance from the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control. During this time, we are in constant communication with our state inspector to get the most up-to-date information regarding any changes to our program.
Currently, the PAL Board and Camp Staff are working hard to plan for this year’s camp and implement changes that are necessary to comply with state and federal guidelines. We are also working closely with Center Lake Camp to make sure that a comprehensive plan is in place to address the health and safety of our campers and staff related to the Covid-19 outbreak.
We know that our campers are itching to get out of the house and back to their normal schedules, and we know parents are ready for their kids to re-engage in normal activities. PAL believes there is no better place to do this than PAL Camp! The safety and health of our campers and staff is always the highest priority at Armada PAL Camp.
We look forward to another great year at PAL camp 2020.
