I know what I did last summer… and it won’t be like this summer. I’ll try, but I know it won’t be the same. Last summer we went to the beach, pool parties, and cook-outs — all mask-free...
This summer is looking a little bit different. This is the summer of COVID and social distancing. If your family is still laying low, you might be wondering how you'll make it through a camp-less, socially distant summer. Should...

The two months leading up to the widespread stay-at-home advisories were a blur. I was working two jobs, with increased hours at both. It had been a hectic and chaotic start of the spring semester at my job supporting...
