Trumansburg/Ulysses Recreation Program

 
Summer Camp Update
June 24, 2020
 
Dear Parents and guardians,
After extensive research and discussion, we regretfully inform you that the Town of Ulysses has decided to cancel summer camp this year. As a town we waited for the guidelines to be released and to collect all of the information before making a final decision. Due to a number of restrictions and programmatic changes because of the new guidelines surrounding opening camps during the COVID-19 pandemic, we felt we could not offer a camp that would be able to not only meet the needs of the community, but to also provide a safe, fun, and engaging environment for the children and staff.
 
The decision was not made lightly and the input that we have received from various groups, boards, commissions, and families were taken into consideration. In the end, when a majority of families expressed serious reservations about having their children participate, we made the very difficult decision to cancel summer camp. We are aware of the importance that summer camps play and that this announcement will come with a cost to the community.
 
The recreation department is now working on plans to offer alternative programming for the community this summer. To be notified directly of new small-group, shorter-term fun activities coming soon. Sign up now on RecDesk at https://ulysses.recdesk.com/Community/Home.
 
If you have any questions, please contact r ecreation@ulysses.ny.us.
