This year, unfortunately, we are not in a position to host Camp Shriver at Stonehill College. Given the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, suspending the camp is necessary to ensure the health and safety of both campers and camp staff. We did not make this decision lightly but only after much reflection on what is in the best interests of all involved.
I know many children will be disappointed at not having the opportunity to make new friends, play sports and be creative while at camp. For them and their families, this represents a big loss at a time of crisis and uncertainty in our community. While we wish circumstances were different, we have to exercise due caution with an eye toward the safety of all involved.
We will miss the energy and joy that the children bring to campus. Check back here next February about future plans for Camp Shriver.
