Special Summer Camp Update due to COVID19 for Summer 2020

2020 Summer Camp Information

If we are cleared to have a camp this summer, we have created a new structure for this year only. We
will treat each registration separately to accommodate our residents. We understand some families may
be struggling financially and we are here to help you. For example: There will be no minimum number of
weeks required to purchase this summer. If we are forced to start later, we can end later (9/4)
Our 4 plans will remain the same, pricing per plan will remain the same. If you purchased your plan
already and we need to adjust your plan, we certainly will refund any money due you.
We will continue to take registrations at this time. However, we will not take money until we get closer
to the summer. Registration forms can be found on our website. Please print and mail to or drop off at
our recreation office located at 93 Greenbrook Road. Early bird pricing will be used throughout the
entire summer. There will be no regular fees nor late fees. We still will have a $100 surcharge for non
residents.

We will not be taking summer camp trips this season.

We will make every effort to bring entertainment to Vermeule every other week.
Again, all adjustments to our structure is for this upcoming summer only. Please feel free to contact the
recreation office with any and all specific questions. 908-756-0247. Please note: It is our policy to only
advertise or promote on Facebook. We understand people on Facebook may answer questions
attempting to be helpful. Sometimes well intended people give bad information causing confusion. We
urge you to call the recreation office for current and accurate information.
