While this summer season will be one of physical rest for Camp Summer at Madeira, we hope to remain engaged with your family until we can see you again next summer. In July we will be rolling out a series of “Backyard Summer Camp” activities that we will share with you online, as a twice-weekly way to provide a camp inspired activity that your child(ren) can do at home. More information on these low or no-cost activities and experiences will be available in June. Come fall, public health permitting, we will be rolling out a series of weekend, family, and vacation camps. These will be opportunities for your family to come to campus for games and activities with camp staffers on our fields, ropes course, pool and beyond!
While COVID-19 is still ever-present, we are looking to Summer of 2021 for the resumption of all the magic that is Summer at Madeira. The work begins on that now. We will stay in touch with your family through the previously mentioned activities, through birthday cards, social media and routine updates via email so that we can once again be joined together to create the lasting memories that can only come from an awesome camp experience. As one of the most famous camp songs goes “this is goodnight, and not goodbye (mmm mmm)”.
Yours in Camping,
Sarah Merianos Andre’ Withers
Director of Summer Programs Assistant Head of School
