Dearest Camp Ariel Families,

 

As promised, we wanted to follow up with you regarding our plans for this summer. While countless hours have been invested to orchestrate an unforgettable camp experience for our campers, we have ultimately made the painful decision to not run our summer program for this summer.

 

10 summer ago we set out to be a summer program that synthesizes the day camp and sleepaway camp cultures into a truly unique and new paradigm for the camping experience. We did that by pushing ourselves at every corner to be flexible and innovative while always upholding our unwavering commitment to the health and safety of our campers. 

 

While we worked tirelessly to design a truly unforgettable summer program, ultimately the shifting variables, both known and unknown, that have evolved and continue to evolve on a daily basis, leave us with too many concerns of significant measure. Our responsibility to our specific base of families, to the community at large and to the broader public are the driving forces behind this decision. 

 

We have shifted our focus at this time to ensuring that Summer 2021 will be worth the wait. We are utilizing our time and resources to prepare and plan our roaring return and we look forward as always to staying in touch with you along the way. 

 

Wishing you and all of us a happy and healthy summer,

Your Camp Ariel Team
