As we approach the season typically filled with shared celebrations and activities, the Town has had to make some very difficult decisions on how to protect the health of our residents by limiting the transmission of COVID-19. These decisions were not made easily and not made alone. We have carefully reviewed and evaluated the regulations required by the CDC, and the State of NY as well as collaborating with our colleagues in recreation departments and town governments throughout the County.
Summer Camp 2020
With sadness, the Town of Hyde Park has canceled our well-loved summer camp program as well as the opening of the Hackett Hill pool for the 2020 season. Because the risks to both children and staff to exposure of the COVID-19 virus remains high in a camp environment, this difficult decision was required. Though the Town had hoped we would be able to host a camp with appropriate measures to keep all safe, the limitations imposed by the State would not allow for the camp experience children expect and deserve.
Wishing everyone a healthy and safe summer, and look forward very much to the return of our much loved summer activities for 2021.
