We are back! 2020 was a tumultuous year full of uncertainty, change, transition, and new beginnings. I am happy to announce that “The Happenings” will be delivered to your inbox four times a year rather than monthly. This allows us to share announcements and updates as well as share our success, and spotlight participants, staff, and programs.
Our programs are up and running and we are looking forward to the spring and summer. We have incorporated a strong focus on the health and safety of our participants and staff and have successfully incorporated COVID safety protocols into all of our programs. We thank you and your children for helping us make that happen!
We will have sports, summer camps, swimming at Cass Park Pool, summer learning and academic programs, mentoring relationships, Ithaca Bike Rental, Youth Employment Services for teens, Inclusion assistance at camps for children with disabilities, Outings, and many other opportunities for youth and families. Of course, all of our programming will look a little different as we meet NYS COVID safety requirements. Plan on masks, social distancing, lots of handwashing, and smaller programs and groupings at programs.
2021 offers us the chance to develop programming in new, creative ways that invites everyone in our community to learn and explore; expand our knowledge around race, equity and inclusion; and foster health and wellness. We look forward to seeing you and enjoying the warmer weather with you!
