Our hearts are broken as yesterday the Government of Ontario announced that all overnight camps will not be permitted to operate in the summer of 2020.
We want to express our gratitude for all of your support. Thank you for sharing
your hopes and dreams of spending the summer of 2020 together. We too have hoped, dreamed, and worked hard to make it possible to see everyone at camp this summer. Over the last two months, our professional staff has tirelessly examined every possible scenario to open this summer, but in the end this decision was out of our hands.
The health and safety of our campers, staff, and families will always be our top priority and we fully understand why Ontario camps cannot run this summer.
This, of course, does not make it any easier to process.
We know you have a lot of questions and we will be in touch in the coming days and weeks with answers.
We will provide full and detailed instructions on how to receive a tuition refund, how to help Moshava through a donation or other options that may work for your family. The fiscal implications of closing camp are serious. Missing a season will have an impact on our budget, our programming, and our organization for years to come.
We will let you know how we plan to bring Camp Moshava to your children this summer. Camp is more than a place. We love camp, live camp, and know that our kids need camp now more than ever. As soon as we have more details, we will provide details on our virtual Moshava BaMachshev programming.
We would like to invite our entire Camp Moshava community to a special Zoom gathering. Additional details to come, but please hold the date and time: Sunday, May 24th at 10:00 am EDT.
Mach Hach 2020 save Sunday, May 24th at 5 pm EDT (but you are also welcome to join us at 10 am).
Our thoughts and hearts are with our entire Moshava family. We are heartbroken, but we look optimistically and enthusiastically toward the future. We will be back in Ennismore in 2021, and we will be better than ever, delivering the kind of
camp magic that transforms our community into the loving, spirited, Moshava chanichim we’re proud to call our own.
On behalf of the Vaad and our professional staff, we wish you continued health,
Vicky, Tova and David
