Work (learn, play) from camp is > work from home
Covid is forcing many schools and offices to continue remote learning and working or a hybrid of remote and in person in the fall. With the loss of traditional “school” for many, students have lost connectedness and community with peers, which has had an impact on their social and emotional health. So in response, many sleepaway camps are pivoting with an innovative initiative and using their campuses as an oasis for students and/or families to learn, socialize, engage in camp activities, and be in nature.
Plus, autumn is a spectacular time to spend at sleepaway camp in the northeast. The leaves are changing, the weather cools a bit, and the natural beauty of the camp is magnified. There are so many new ways to fall in love with camp this year. Read on about options just for students, families, and moms – more info on each experience linked!
Just for students:
Robin Hood and Windsor Mountain, both sleepaway camps in New Hampshire, opened their gates this summer and ran success sleepaway camp sessions creating a COVID safe environment and mitigating any spread. They plan to replicate this safety and success and create a protective bubble for their student community. This offers children a safe space to learn and also to spend time with peers and to take advantage of all the camp facility has to offer.
Just for families:
Winaukee (a sleepaway camp in New Hampshire) and Echo (a sleepaway camp in New York just 90 miles outside of NYC) are creating hybrid family work/vacation program. They will provide places to work or learn so parents and children can focus on their school/work and then spend the rest of the day enjoying quality family time together at camp!
Just for moms:
Raise your hand if you are a mom in need of some self care and ME time?! There was an experience imagined and created with you in mind! On September 25th-27th join for a Moms Getaway Weekend in PA at Tyler Hill (located in the Poconos Mountains just 2 hours outside of NYC). This is for those moms who’ve spent the summer managing their kids’ schedules, meals, playdates, sports, dance zoom classes and then some and who are now managing the first days of school and all that goes along with a new and strange school year. These fews days are an opportunity to recharge, reset, laugh, breathe, have fun with friends and make new ones.
You don’t need to have gone to sleepaway camp or even need to be a mom! You may just be in need of a weekend away and this is for anyone and everyone in need of some TLC.
Happy camping, fall style! xoxo
