After much deliberation, the Mid-Sun Community Association (MSCA) Board of Directors, alongside MSCA Management, have decided that the Mid-Sun Summer Daycamp program will be cancelled for the 2020 year due to the restrictions caused by the Covid-19 Pandemic.
We truly wanted to be able to go ahead with camps, as we understand that many parents are struggling with finding childcare during this time, but it just isn’t feasible given the restrictions and the concern around health and safety of the kids and our staff.
As time goes on, if restrictions are modified, we may be able to offer some type of alternative childcare. This alternative care would look much different than our beloved camps (no off-site trips, limited group numbers, potential limited hours). We would begin planning from scratch and look to other facilities who are offering camps for guidance. If this is the case, we are happy to contact those individuals who indicate to us that they would be interested. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with the Subject: Alternative Summer Childcare Request. No other information is necessary in your email.
Families who are currently registered in our Summer Daycamp program will receive a full refund within the next few days. Because our software doesn't allow automatic refunding, our staff must individually contact each family to obtain their payment information in order to process the refund manually on our POS (point of sale) machine. We will be placing calls between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. starting Wednesday, June 3 through to Friday, June 5. We ask that families not try to call us as we will be working very diligently to get through our call list. We appreciate your patience and continued support as we work through this process.

Again, we thank you for your continued support and cannot wait to start planning our beloved Summer Daycamps for 2021!
