Families who registered children for the Parks & Rec Music, Art and Dance Camp “MAD camp” were informed that, sadly, the town made the difficult decision to cancel what would have been the 84th year for the performing arts camp a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.
“We still plan to operate some recreation activities over the summer months with necessary and required restrictions,” said Sue Snyder from Parks & Rec.
Snyder said the department recently learned they would not have access to Greenwich Pubic Schools, where the camp has been hosted.
“We completely understand their position and decision and appreciate their cooperation over the years,” she said. “Under the current circumstances, and with the limited time remaining, there is no alternate location where we can operate the camp.”
As a result of the cancellation, the Town of Greenwich will process refunds for all fees paid.
The Greenwich Skate Park reopened Saturday, May 23.
The park will be open Monday through Friday, 3:30 to 7 p.m., and 12:30 to 7 p.m. on weekends.
