Dear Summer at Kimberton Families,
My heart is heavy as I write this, because I have been looking forward all year to being back together with all of you for a long and lazy summer of fun. I know you feel the same.
Due to the situation with Covid-19 and the uncertainties it has brought to gatherings of all kinds, we have decided to close our camp for the season.
Many factors went into this decision, including our concerns for the safety and well-being of our campers, their families, and our counselors and staff. In addition, we know that a big part of our summer here at Kimberton is the freedom to be outside in nature and to do all our fun things like swimming in the creek and playing games together. Those kinds of activities just aren’t possible in a big group this summer, not without so many compromises that the fun and relaxation may well be lost.
My hope for your summer is that you find a way to get outside in your own backyards. Pitch a tent, play flashlight tag, build a fort! Find out where the raspberries and the wineberries grow in your neighborhood. Put up a bird feeder and see who comes to it. Maybe you can start a garden, or grow cherry tomatoes in a five-gallon bucket. I’ll be thinking of you.
Blessings on you and your families,
Miss Carmen and everyone else at Kimberton
