    Summer Programs:
    We have re-worked our summer program to comply with all COVID-19 Social Distancing protocols concerning outdoor recreational activities and Day Camps.
    We continue to work with the Weymouth Health Department, receiving guidance from the Massachusetts State Department of Health, CDC and the American Camp Association. Additionally, communicate with Recreation Departments from all over Massachusetts. (Massachusetts Recreation and Park Association)
    The focus of both Wey-Fun and Esker, is to keep groups small and contained.   Limiting interactions from other groups as much as possible. We will clean our equipment and high touch points on a regular and frequent basis We will be staying outside in the open air and only seeking shelter from the elements when absolutely necessary.

    Staff will have face coverings. Campers should bring face coverings in the event social distancing is not possible.

    Here is what the summer looks like.

    WEY-FUN
    Wey-Fun looks a lot different than previous years but will include similar activities that all the campers are accustomed to.  A combination of playground games, sports, and arts and crafts will be done with the best possible practices of maintaining as much distance as possible and frequent cleaning of high touch areas.  Unfortunately, the aquatics aspect has been removed from the program as we will have no transportation to the beach.  Balancing out the day with activities and ample social distance breaks will ensure that we have the best experience possible and make it fun for everyone. 

    Dates: July 6-August 28
    Times: 9:00-3:00
    Weekly Full Day only
    No Early Drop off, No Extended Care, No Single Day, No Half Day, No transportation
    Fee: $160/Week
    Ages: 4-15 (this includes LIT aged teens)
    Where we will be: (25-30 children per site per week) – Subject to change.

    Great Esker Park Programs

    Esker Nature programs will run somewhat similar to how they have in the past. Exploring nature, playing in the mud and tidal streams, looking for creatures big and small. Art, games and activities focused on nature and Great Esker Park will still be the main theme. Differences will be that, kids will be in much smaller groups and will be separated from others during their day. Social Distancing will take place as much as is possible. The park is big enough for us to really spread out and enjoy every part of it that we safely can. 
           
    Dates: July 6 - August 21
    Times: Program times will largely remain the same. However, afternoon classes will not be an option in most cases.
    No Early Drop off, No Extended Care.
    Fee: Fee’s will largely remain the same.
    Esker Adventure Programs - We will be offering a modified Esker Adventure Program. The weeks will include a mix of adventures. Drop off and pick up will happen at the site of the day as we will not be able to utilize our vans. 
    Due to the nature of some adventure programs, that are a little too out of the way for folks to reasonably drop off and pick up and where it will not be possible to maintain safe distances between children and staff or maintain sanitized equipment. There will be some Esker Adventure programs that have to be canceled. Credits will be administered automatically. IF you wish to receive a refund, please contact Andrew Hultin via email at Ahultin@weymouth.ma.us. Please provide him with your name, child or children’s name, address and phone number.  
    Canceled Programs Include:

    • Learn to Ride
    • Middle School Adventure Club
    • Biking
    LIT’s - The LIT program will run but it will be modified.
    FYI's
    Health Forms - If you submitted a Health Form last year. We still have it.  There will be no need to submit another one for this summer.  If we don’t have it already, we will communicate a policy/procedure at a later date. 
    Camp ID’s - If you have an ID that expired in December, you do not need to get another one for this summer. We are extending the date of expired ID’s to August 28.  If you don’t have one, you will be asked to bring a recent picture of your camper on your first day with us and we will create an ID that can be used this summer. For students of Abigail Adams or Chapman, your current school ID will also suffice for us.
    WEYREC T-Shirts - Since our sites throughout town will have far fewer kids, the need for age related, color coded WEYREC shirts is reduced.  Therefore, a WEYREC Camp Shirt of any color will do. If you don’t have a Camp Shirt and would like one (because they are pretty awesome), we have a limited supply and will have them for sale via curbside pick-up Please call the office to check on shirt availability and scheduling curbside pick up. .  Otherwise, the kids can come to our program with a shirt as close to resembling our colors as possible.  Red, Gold, Sandy, Lime Green and Light Blue.
    Vouchers – At this time it does not appear that we will be able to accept Vouchers this summer.  If that changes we will post it online.


    Rain Day Cancellation Policy.  Due to the crowding variables during severe weather,  we will not be able to hold our programs if there is sufficient cause for us to need shelter for more than brief intervals. We will do our best to give notice and can only rely on weather forecast reports. 

    Thank you for your patience and understanding. Stay Safe
