While Summer Magic won't be congregating in local parks this season NCPCA Exec Director Tara Nelson, her board and her staff are tossing out an alternate plan for local families.
Hello from Summer Magic,
We have been working hard to decide whether to open up Summer Magic for onsite programming for any parts of summer. These decisions are difficult to make, and we have spent the last twelve weeks strategic planning how to best serve our families with their health and safety in mind. We have looked into the Center for Disease Control guidelines for COVID-19, thoroughly reviewed the Michigan Executive Orders, and researched other day camps and how they are interpreting and implementing orders. After careful consideration, we feel we are unable to accommodate all guidelines to safely open Summer Magic for onsite programming this summer.
However, our board of directors and leadership team have been strategizing on how to bring Summer Magic home to families. Beginning June 15th and ending August 8th our staff will be doing door to door deliveries of a fun box. This box will bring hands on materials right to you for your children’s fun and enjoyment. These will be themed weeks with planned activities. You can expect ways to entertain your children during the weekday and some exciting ways to venture out as a family on the weekends. We have also involved some local collaborations that are a surefire way to add fun to our boxes. You can also anticipate family resources in these boxes and ways to connect with other agencies within our community.
To enroll in our delivery program you can email Rebecca Benton at firstname.lastname@example.org with your name, address, email, phone number, and your children’s name and ages between 5-16. These fun boxes are at our discounted summer rate. The eight week program box will cost $45 per child or $60 per family. Payment can be made by mailing a check to Summer Magic P.O. BOX 415, White Cloud, MI 49349 or by card by downloading Cash App and searching $NCPCA. Children need to be enrolled by June 8th and payment must be made prior to our first delivery.
Thank you to our community for being flexible and open to our new way of programming this summer.
