After much consideration, we have made the decision to NOT host Visiting Day for any of our campers who are Junior B’s (finishing 5th Grade) and older. In lieu of Visiting Day, we will come up with special ways for these campers to be able to connect with families during the summer (including FaceTimes or Zooms), as well as special programming in-camp for campers.
We have made the decision to host Visiting Day this summer ONLY for our campers who are Junior A’s (finishing 4th Grade) and younger.
- Saturday, July 24th from 11:30 AM to 4:30 PM will be the Visiting Day for Freshmen, Soph A’s, and Soph B’s (finishing 1st – 3rd Grades).
- Sunday, July 25th from 11:30 AM to 4:30 PM will be the Visiting Day for Junior A’s.
Parents with campers in more than one of those groups must choose only one of the two days to visit.
All visiting will be outdoors (including suitable rain contingencies), and all parents, campers, and staff involved in Visiting Day will be expected to wear masks (other than when eating/drinking).
Parents must be fully vaccinated to attend Visiting Day on these dates. (If parents of campers in these groups are not vaccinated and they wish to visit, we will arrange it for another day.)
No grandparents or siblings will be allowed to visit this year. (If no other plans can be made for siblings, we can provide some “childcare” for them in a separate area at our Lakefront.) If a sibling is possibly a year away from attending BLC, a tour can be arranged for another day or we suggest attending our prospective camper Fall Fun Day the weekend of Oct. 9th or Family Camp the weekend of Aug. 28th.
Parents will, of course, be able to see older brothers and eat lunch with them, but the day will be designed for the younger boys.
Visiting Day is subject to cancellation based on NY State requirements or if the Covid infection and spread rate becomes high in either the NYC metro area or in Warren County. Our decision is also contingent upon the continuation of the general consensus by scientists and the medical community that those who are vaccinated, outdoors, and masked have little chance of contracting and spreading the virus.
