summer camp

  • State health officials are urging people to take COVID-19 precautions at residential summer camps after two outbreaks; Cult leader Wilbert Thomas, Sr. has died in Akron at age 91; Canton’s Republic Steel has been ordered to make changes after its mill exceeded the federal limit for lead emissions for the second time in three years; and more stories.
  • It’s summer, and usually, that would mean a wide variety of summer programs would be open for kids, like day camps or educational classes. The coronavirus outbreak, however, has changed the landscape for summer programs. Some are canceled, some are now online, and others that are still offering in-person programs look very different.
  • Ohio day camps can begin reopening May 31, Gov. Mike DeWine announced in his daily coronavirus press conference Thursday. Full guidelines from the state are forthcoming, but camps around Northeast Ohio already have plans of their own at the ready to keep children safe. Hiram House in Chagrin Falls has suspended some of its camp options for the 2020 season, said Executive Director Courtney Guzy, including the overnight camp, cookouts and group photos.
