COVID-19 Communication – Summer 2021

Updated September 23, 2020

Just like that, the summer has come and gone. Even though we weren’t able to welcome you all to Birch Island as we normally would have, we hope that you enjoyed your summers all the same and were able to find a little bit of Mi-A-Kon-Da magic at some point. For those of you who joined us for our Virtual Summer Program, we hope you enjoyed connecting with our community and participating in the variety of activities that were planned throughout the summer. We loved seeing everyone engage with us virtually and can’t wait to see you again in person.

Summer 2021 Registration

As some of you might have noticed, we have opened our registration for Summer 2021. We are optimistic that come June of next year we will be able to run our summer program on Birch Island. However the health and safety remains our number one priority and we will continue to monitor the Covid-19 pandemic and plan accordingly. If there are any updates to our procedures, policies and programming it will be clearly communicated to all of our registered families in a timely manner.

We would like to say a big thank you to our community for all of your wonderful messages of support during these unprecedented times. If this pandemic has shown us anything, it’s how incredible our community is at coming together to support one another. Your heartfelt words shine light on the dark reality of not being able to have you at Birch Island this summer. You have shown incredible empathy, patience and compassion with your replies and encouragement to our previous communications.

We wish all of our families good health and wellbeing as this situation continues to progress towards a new normal. We are here to continue to support our campers, families and staff anyway we can. We look forward to hearing from you, answering your questions and hope to welcome you back to Birch Island in Summer 2021.

Sincerely,

Pam, Katelyn & Brandon
