Hello, PAL Followers -
The Armada PAL Family always has the safety of our campers and their families at the forefront of what we do. Given the current environment and the temporary closing of the schools, we have decided to delay Camp Registration until May. Thank you for understanding and we thank you for your flexibility during this time.
To combat the spread of COVID-19 in Michigan, Governor Whitmer signed the “Stay Home, Stay Safe” executive order. For at least the next three weeks, all Michigan businesses and operations must temporarily suspend in-person operations that are not necessary to sustain or protect life, and all Michiganders must stay in their homes unless they’re a part of that critical infrastructure workforce, engaged in an outdoor activity, or performing tasks necessary to the health and safety of themselves or their family, like going to the hospital or grocery store.
✅ Go to the grocery store or pick up take-out food.
✅ Go to the pharmacy to pick up a needed prescription.
✅ Engage in outdoor activities like walking, hiking, running, biking.
✅ Go to the hospital or secure any care necessary to address a medical emergency or to preserve your health or the health of a loved one.
✅ Fill your car with gas.
✅ Return to Michigan to a home or place of residence from outside the State.
✅ Leave the State for a home or residence elsewhere.
✅ Walk your pets and take them to the veterinarian for needed medical care.
YOU MAY NOT:
❌ Leave the home to work unless your employer designates you as a critical infrastructure worker.
❌ Participate in any public gatherings.
❌ Visit someone in the hospital, nursing home, or other residential care facilities (with limited exceptions).
❌ Go to the mall or to restaurants.
Information around this outbreak is changing rapidly. The latest information is available at Michigan.gov/Coronavirus and CDC.gov/Coronavirus.
For those who have questions about the state’s actions to mitigate the spread of coronavirus, please call the COVID-19 Hotline at 1-888-535-6136 between 8AM - 5PM daily.
Remember, stay home, stay safe. Find creative ways to bring your loved ones closers, even though we have to be far away.
Your PAL Family
Dear PAL Families,
Spring has arrived!!! That means we are getting ready for PAL Camp 2019. This year we will be celebrating our 35th year providing Armada youth with one of their best weeks of the summer. PAL Camp dates are Sunday, August 4th until Saturday, August 10th. Registration will be held on Wednesday, April 17th, 6:30 p.m. at Armada Middle School for all current grades 5th thru 8th.
To avoid those long lines, Early Mail-in Registration is once again available for current grades 5-7. Because of limited spots, those campers registering for the 8th Grade High Adventure Program, must register in person. All necessary forms will be available on our website beginning April 5th.
The window for Early Mail-in Registration is April 8th - 13th. All forms must be postmarked by April 13th. Registration forms received after the deadline will be held until in person registration has closed and will be added in pending available space.
The cost for camp is $325. There is a $50 nonrefundable deposit required at registration. The balance is due on or before orientation, which is May 21st. This year we also have a credit card option. Unfortunately, it comes with a cost. There is a surcharge of 3.5% + $0.15 that will be passed along to you. To keep the cost down, stick with cash or a check. If you choose the credit card option, I recommend paying in full. Otherwise, you will pay the surcharge twice. The surcharge for paying in full equals $11.53.
I will send you a follow up email with additional information the first week of April. Know that after registration, this email group will be closed. So, if you no longer have a PAL Camper, you will no longer receive my emails after registration. If you have not been receiving our parent emails and would like to, please comment below oe reach out to me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
For more information, please continue our website and follow us on Facebook for the latest updates.
I hope everyone has a great spring break.
