Why doesn’t Parksville open as a day camp for local kids, or kids that have a place to stay nearby?

My belief...

I believe day camps are far more dangerous than overnight ones. People are coming and going to day camps, after having been exposed to ‘the outside world’, whereas overnight camps can be controlled better (after ensuring of course, that anyone who comes in is tested first).

Yes 100%

Day camps are by far worse. Sad that parksville can’t open

What’s the ratio of Jewish overnight camps in NY to non-Jewish?
This feels very targeting, but I may be wrong..

it was specifically targeting Jewish camps

They should open as a protest camp. These democrats will have no way to do anything

Seriously? What’s the logic behind this?

Protests are aloud to happen with who knows how many people, but camp, with 10 girls in a bunk can’t?

Children are less at risk and cooping them up with Parents for a summer isn’t the answer

What if we write BLACK LIVES MATTER on their suitcases?

Simply déclare overnight camps part of the autonomous country of Zumar (summer). We don’t abide by Cuomo and DeBlasio, we’ll take care of ourselves

Howard Zucker is the imbecile responsible for the bloodbath in New York nursing homes. Why does this guy still have a job?

Except when the same people rain down mandates and restrictions that effect YOUR children’s lives in such a profound way e.g the ability to participate in camp and school then all the sudden their reasoning , data and motives are questioned and rightfully so. This is the position of many families of vaccine injured children were put in last year.
