As you certainly know by now, the coronavirus pubic health crisis caused the LA Camp Fair events to be cancelled this year. Unfortunately, many parents depend on the camp fairs to find a summer camp program their kids will love.
Cancelling this year's camp fairs left many parents where to turn, not just to find a camp, but also with the question of whether camps are even operating this summer due to the global pandemic.
Thankfully, many camps are still "full steam ahead" and fully intend to operate this summer. Others have pivoted and designed online programs as an alternative to in-person programming just in case they are unable to operate this summer.
Meanwhile, we want to let you know how you can find a camp your child will enjoy this summer even though the camp fairs were cancelled. In response to cancelling the camp fairs, there is now a new website called vcampfair.com. It's the first virutal camp fair website were you can search for camps and find them online rather than attend an in-person camp fair. If you find a camp that interests you, you can easily contact the camp director for more information right from your own computer.
Whether your child attends camp the traditional way this summer or the coronavirus situation and forces kids to remain inside and choose an online camp instead, we hope you and your loved ones stay healthy and safe until this whole thing blows over and we can return to a somewhat normal lifestyle again.
