Leave a comment

THIS IS A NEW PROGRAM!

The world has changed, and our camp program has changed with it. We have worked with updated State Requirements for Camper Health and Safety to develop a program that maximizes safety for all, while maintaining high quality, age-appropriate programming.

Camp will run in three, 2-week sessions:  
Session 1 runs July 6 – July 17 
Session 2 runs July 20 – July 31
Session 3 runs August 3 – August 14. 
Campers entering Gr 2-4 attend from 9-12 noon and campers entering Gr 5-9 attend from 12:30-3:30 pm. 

Due to the stringent requirements for social distancing and mask wearing, we are not offering programs for our campers entering Gr K – 1 this summer.

Our website explains the rest. Our Frequently Asked Questions provides a high level answer to your most common questions, while our new family handbook provides the details… we strongly encourage you to review it, so you understand what you are agreeing to when you register for camp! Tired of reading?  Let our directors talk you through the program!

Please understand that, although we have made significant modifications to reduce the risk of COVID spread through camp, there is no way to remove all risk. Please consider the risk to your camper, your household and anyone in your life who may be considered high-risk prior to making this decision.

REGISTRATION!

Online registration is highly recommended, but you can download a registration form to mail in as well.

LINCOLN RESIDENT REGISTRATION will begin tomorrow morning, WEDNESDAY, JUNE 17 at 9:00 am. For more information visit our Registration Information page.

LINCOLN COMMUNITY MEMBERS that do not reside in the 01773-zip code 

(METCO Families, Hanscom Families, Birches Families, Carroll school Families, Town Employees, etc.) will also begin registration tomorrow morning, WEDNESDAY, JUNE 17 at 9:00 am. Please email Laurie Dumont and provide your camper name, fall 2020 Grade, and which session(s) you would like to attend.

NON-RESIDENT REGISTRATION will begin FRIDAY, JUNE 19 at 12:00 NOON. For more information visit our Registration Information page.

Because we need to ensure a minimum number of campers in attendance each week, ALL CAMP REGISTRATIONS CLOSE NEXT WEDNESDAY, JUNE 24 AT 5 PM

At that time, we will decide if we are financially able to run camp this summer!

FINANCIAL AID!

We will do our best to assist, but aid is limited this year. Download a financial aid form and return it to us (email is fine) no later than WEDNESDAY, JUNE 24 AT 5 PM.  Final notification of the program, as well as any financial aid awards, will be made by Friday, June 26.

REFUNDS!

Anyone who had already registered for Lincoln Summer Camp will find a credit in their account for any fees you paid. You may apply these fees towards your new camp registration or any Parks and Recreation Department programs going forward, OR you may request a refund check. 

Please email Office Manager Laurie Dumont (ldumont@lincnet.org) or call 781-259-0784 to request a refund or if you need assistance in accessing your credit.

CAMP OPERATIONS MAY CONTINUE TO CHANGE!

Public health indicators at the National, State, or Local level may necessitate changes to our camp program at any point. If indicators improve and Massachusetts moves into phase 3, protocols may relax, and camp programming may be able to expand. 

If indicators decline and Massachusetts moves BACKWARDS into phase 1, or we see concerning trends at a local level, the camp may need to close entirely. In that instance, families would receive a refund for any missed days of camp. We always need to prioritize personal safety and public health. 

WHAT WILL NEVER CHANGE!

Your camper will be cared for and nurtured! Your camper will have the opportunity to bond with peers and staff! Your camper will get to join a vibrant camp community with all its cheers, songs, and traditions! Safety will be our top priority!

Once you have reviewed the information please feel free to reach out to us with any questions or check out our Frequently Asked Questions page. We are happy to answer them and hope you decide to join us this summer… we miss you!
