Many summer camps are going virtual this year. Here’s what experts say about safety at summer camps.

As the coronavirus continues to infect new people every day, summer camps are considering the best way to keep children safe this year. Some have decided to go virtual and others have been canceled entirely.

“The cancellation of camp this summer is profoundly disappointing for all of us after what already feels like an eternity of frustration and uncertainty,” Shannon Donovan-Monti, executive director at Chimney Corners Camp in western Massachusetts, wrote in an email, according to NPR. “There are no words that can take away the heartbreak of depriving our children and ourselves of something that has given us such joy and connection to others.”
