COVID-19 has impacted all of our lives in so many ways, and still we are left with many unanswered questions. In the face of this uncertainty, and with most of our summer programs about two months away, we continue to work towards what we believe can be some incredibly special experiences.
Here are some things we do know for certain:
1. We will not take our participants or our leaders on a program if we are not in a situation to both adequately care for them and provide them a fantastic experience.
2. We will continue to live by our values, and always strive to do the right thing for the right reasons
It is with this in mind that we are going to continue to fight to provide your children with the life changing experiences that The Road Less Traveled can offer. We are mindful of the hurdles we must overcome in order to run programming this summer, but we don’t want to give up hope and we don’t have to at this time.
We are working with the CDC and the American Camp Association (ACA) to develop protocols for handling COVID-19 on our programs. We are combing tirelessly through hypotheticals to ready necessary modifications to our programs and procedures. And we have a fantastic staff in place to take great care of our participants and create an unforgettable summer experience.
After this strained period of isolation, though many pieces of the puzzle remain outside of our control, we owe it to our youth to diligently monitor the evolving situation and determine if we can safely provide them the empowering experience they deserve and need.
With this in mind, we are giving families the opportunity to sign up risk free for our 2020 programs. We have updated our program chart to reflect trips that we believe may be able to run safely this summer.
If you or someone you know would like to discuss our summer experiences and what steps we are taking to run our programs, we invite you to reach out to us. Please call us at the office (773.342.5200) or email us (firstname.lastname@example.org).
We look forward to being on The Road with you soon,
The Road Less Traveled Team
