Moon Parks and Recreation Summer Camp Update:
 
As we continue to find our footing during these changing times, it has become apparent that our traditional camp model does not fit the needs of Moon families this summer.  Since our announcement that we would not be able to offer a 5-day camp following the CDC guidelines, we have seen a tremendous drop in enrollment.  Additionally, we are concerned that we won’t be able to offer a high-quality program without our usual staples of field trips, group activities, and guest programs.
 
For this reason, we have decided to cancel our traditional summer camp.  We apologize for the lateness of this announcement.  While we have been working to develop plans for over two months, we did not receive official state guidance until recently.  
 
While we are not offering our traditional camp, we will be offering a variety of alternative programs.  We understand that kids need to get outside, interact with their peers, and get active this summer, and we have staff who are looking forward to seeing your child.  We will be offering a drop off programs that is 1/2 day two days a week.  There will be two sessions, afternoon and morning.  Group size will be limited to 10 campers.  A full listing of these programs will be available on Monday, June 1st.  All campers who were enrolled in our summer camp program will have priority to register for these programs.  You will need to register by calling the parks office at 412-262-1703 ext 403.  Enrollment will open to the public online on Monday, June 8th.  Our summer camp programming will run Tuesday, June 16th through Thursday, August 13th.
 
For those not yet comfortable with group activities we will also be launching our camp in a bag program.  For $20 campers will receive an awesome tote of fun activities.  That first tote can be picked up at the Moon Farmers Market on Wednesday, June 17th.  Then each week following, a refill for your tote will be available for $5.  You may register online starting June 1st for your camp in a bag tote.  A limited number of bags will be available at the Farmers Market, but registering online will guarantee you a tote.  
 
We thank you for your support of Moon Parks and Recreation programs.  This is not the summer that we had envisioned, but it’s the summer we get, and we want to make the most of it!
