On behalf of everyone here at CCWA – Paradise Farm Camps, we hope that you and your family are doing well as our nation responds to the threat of the COVID-19 virus. These are trying times for all of us. Fortunately, our youth development organization is strong and prepared to assist our community in this time of need. We are following all of the directives and heeding the recommendations from the World Health Organization, the Center for Disease Control, the Federal Government, the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, and the Chester County Health Department.
We asked all of our staff to stay home this week, with full pay, so that no one had to take vacation, sick time or personal days off. It was simply the right thing to do to support the incredible people that enable us to accomplish our mission in such meaningful ways.
Next week, some of our staff will work remotely, to the best of their abilities, given the restrictions in place in our region. Right now, we are planning to serve your families as we originally intended. We truly hope we are able to do so. Nevertheless, we simply do not know how this is all going to play out. No one does. I state that to be completely honest. We must wait and see, then respond appropriately when we know more.
We recognize our role in this situation. The safety of your family must come first. The schools that serve your children will be evaluating things and making decisions about the balance of the school year and the schedules for completing course work. We have always worked closely with the schools in our area and will continue to do so. Because of this, we are asking for your patience and understanding as we gather more information and ultimately decide what to do at the right time.
Here’s wishing all of you continued good health. Be safe and get out and enjoy the great outdoors!
