Despite COVID-19, the Ann Arbor YMCA remains optimistic about offering summer camps in Washtenaw County this year.


Toni Kayumi is the president of the Ann Arbor YMCA.  She says national leadership from the Y has been meeting with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to come up with guidelines for summer camps.  Kayumi says those details are expected to be announced on May 15th.

"There might be additional spacing required, and so, if additional spacing is required, the number of kids per camp program might be less than in years past."

Kayumi says wearing a face mask may also be part of the guidelines.  Seasonal summer camp workers have not been hired yet.
