Village of Coxsackie Summer Programs for Kids 2020

The 2020 Children’s Summer Recreation Program has been cancelled.

NYS will not allow programs to operate until either a vaccine is available or some other mitigating factor reduces the risk potential. The news tells us neither of these will occur quickly enough to allow us to operate the program this year.

The safety of our children and residents is paramount to the Village Board members. Each normally scheduled summer event, program or function will be individually evaluated to see if we can allow it to safely continue as is, or with modifications.

While masks, social distancing and hand washing have become the norm, asking or expecting young children to comply with this and keep themselves and other campers safe would be challenging at best.

Our summer program normally signs up about 110-130 children, with 80-90 attending daily. We know that many children will be disappointed (as well as parents) but we are considering several appropriate events and functions for children and families. If anyone has ideas we are interested in hearing them.
