Dear Dover Community,
We as a community are dealing with this unfortunate COVID-19 Virus that has paralyzed our state. As a Recreation Department, we have been working hard to find ways to continue our commitment to the community.
Throughout this devastating time we have been working with New York State, as well as the CDC Guidelines on ways to prevent the spread of this virus. The mandated guidelines set up by both, New York State and the CDC are very structured. We have tried to become more diligent in both our personal lives and our places of business. These practices have made our lives different in many ways. These efforts have not been in vain, we have to be patient and wait it out. We will get through this together.
With that said, I want to let the whole community know that after careful consideration between the Recreation Staff, Town Board, and myself, we have decided to put our Day Camp on PAUSE this summer. We feel the safety of both your children and our staff will be compromised. The CDC guidelines are very stringent. They include social distancing, wearing a mask at all times, temperature taking and constant thorough cleaning of all facilities. We could not guarantee your child’s health at Day Camp under the circumstances.
Day Camp is something we plan for all year and look forward to. We are heartbroken that we cannot provide Day Camp to the youth of our community this summer. It has been a very hard decision to make, but at this time the protection of the community is the most important factor.
Should anyone have any questions or concerns, please email me at Recdirector@doverny.us.
We also hope as time goes on and things open up, that we can begin to offer more programs and events at Boyce Park. Please stay tuned to our Facebook Page and Website for up to date information.
Thank you all for your consideration. Please stay safe, and have a great summer!
Missing all of you,
Teri Ptasnick and the Recreation Staff
