BROOKSTON, Ind. (WLFI) -- Camp Tecumseh is launching an eLearning day-camp program. Camp leaders are hoping parents and students will find it beneficial during this time of schooling from home.
Starting on Monday, Sept. 14, the camp will be offering three-day or five-day programs. The three-day program is $75 per week and the five-day program is $100 per week. It's designed to provide a safe space for students as they complete their virtual assignments. It's also providing educational outdoor activities for the kids. This includes archery, canoeing, climbing walls, various camp games, and crafts. Julianne Yost, the camp's outdoor education director said the camp will be following CDC guidelines and requiring social distancing and masks when distancing isn't possible.
This year's summer camp program was canceled due to Covid-19. It typically serves around 6,000 kids each year.
Yost said they're happy they've found a way to safely bring kids back.
"Camp is community and so it's been really hard for us to not be able to that these past couple of months so we all got together and kind of brain stormed the ways that we could best serve our community," said Yost.
Leaders hope kids and parents find the new program helpful.
"As a camp, we've had to kind of refocus our attention on what parents are in need of right now and while it doesn't look like what we're typically doing, our real goal is to kind of meet them where they're at," said Yost.
