SUMMER CAMP NEWS
June 5, 2020
After careful consideration, the Athens-Clarke County Leisure Services Department announces the cancellation of all summer camps scheduled for the month of July. The Department cancelled all June camps earlier in the spring.
Due to the recent CDC and Governor Kemp’s guidelines, Leisure Services Department determined that summer camps would not be able to take place while adhering to these important requirements. Following the necessary requirements would significantly reduce the number of campers and hinder a quality camp experience. The health and well-being of campers, staff, and the overall community was paramount in this decision.
All those who registered will receive a 100% refund. Due to the high volume of registrations, please allow 6-8 weeks to process refunds. All refunds will be in the form of a check mailed to the address on file in the online registration system. Parents should login to their accounts at www.accgov.com/leisure and make sure their address is current.
Parks are available for self-directed use and a complete list is available at www.accgov.com/leisure . The Department will continue to offer a selection of virtual programs including arts, recreation, sports, and others. These programs are available online at www.accgov.com/leisure .
The Department currently plans to open pools and splash pads on Friday, July 3, 2020. This date has been identified with anticipation that COVID-19 conditions continue to improve.
The Lyndon House Arts Center is just opening it’s doors for gallery viewing and self directed use. Please click HERE for information and recommendations for visiting. We have new hours during June, Tuesday - Saturday 10 am to 6 pm. We are not able to host meetings, gatherings, guilds or rentals until further notice.
Fall classes will be available to view on July 3 and registration begins August 1, Saturday at 9am for ACC residents and Monday August 3 at Noon for non-ACC residents. If you were enrolled in an adult class and would like to be honored, we will do the best we can. Please email email@example.com as to your interest by July 15. Thank you.
