Summer Camp 2020 with Commonpoint Queens
With our agency’s experience serving as an emergency childcare center for our city’s frontline workers during the pandemic, we feel confident that we will be able to offer a safe and fun environment to help our children and families reconnect with the magic of camp. In providing childcare programming since mid-March, we have been at the forefront of many conversations with city and state officials, including the CDC and Departments of Health, which have helped guide us in designing and implementing programs and policies to provide the safest possible circumstances for campers and their families.
