Hopefully I can make this one into a poll. The title says it all - if you have the option, do you plan or would you plan to send your kid to camp this summer?
My answer: it depends. My daughter is signed up for a number of camps already, all of which she was signed up for before the pandemic started. I’m seriously considering keeping her in three of them, which start later in the summer, but it all depends on the rate of decline of cases and hospitalizations in the area.
My daughter is lonely, emotional and not sleeping because she doesn’t have enough to occupy her brain and her body even though I try to get the kids out for a walk or run during the day and in the evening and try getting her together with a friend during the week. I and her dad can’t play with her because we work; her brother can’t play with her due to virtual summer school classes. The camps she may go to are so far populated primarily by families we already know and trust. They’ll be outside most of the time and they’ll be limiting the number of kids.
Yet, I’m still on the fence. It seems relatively low risk, but I’m not sure whether even that risk is acceptable, which leads me to think…maybe she should stay home, try to push through and hopefully get to see people at school in the fall.
So, Dopers with kids, what are you guys thinking about your own situations?
ETA: Well, poop. The server timed out before I could add in my poll.
