Officials proactively cancel camps in Canandaigua despite lack of guidance from NYS

Camp has been cancelled.

That was the word from officials on Wednesday who said that there would be no Summer Camp or Kiddie Camp in Canandaigua this year.

The announcement came from City Manager John Goodwin.

“Although there is no guidance from the State regarding summer camps, it is anticipated that there will be a great deal of operating restrictions issued by the State, if camps are allowed to be held at all this summer,” Goodwin said in a statement. “Due to concerns about the safety of the children and our staff we have made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 Summer Camp and Kiddie Kamp. Anyone that has registered for either camp will be issued a full refund.”

Many wondered if individual communities would make decisions about it before state officials weighed in on the matter.
