Update on Status of Programming
For Cumming Recreation and Parks Department
For Summer 2020
Due to the continued uncertainty surrounding the Covid-19 pandemic, much of the traditional summer programming offered through the Cumming Recreation and Parks Department has been cancelled through the month of June. Issues concerning the ability to accurately predict what phase of the recovery the community will be in at any given time, the ability to social distance, the levels of interaction allowed between participants as well as between participants and instructors, the sharing of supplies and equipment among participants, the availability of disinfecting supplies to meet recommended standards all played a part in the decision, as well as the availability and cost of staffing to meet the guidelines. Programs affected includes Day Camps, Camp Cool Kids and Teens; Art Camps, Dance Camps, Gymnastics Camps and Athletic Camps. Should the ability to plan for and meet the above criteria improve, some additional programming may be made available in July.
The Recreation Department has resumed programming for Team and Upper-Level Gymnastics, Company Dance, and Adult Art classes, with a reduced scheduling of these programs (following Governor Kemp’s guidelines of participation, social distancing, temperature checks, and the disinfection of areas utilized for classes).
In addition, the Recreation Department’s Fitness Program has resumed.
Please check our website (www.crpdonline.com) or Facebook page for updates.
We appreciate the patronage of our programs in the past, as well as the continued interest in when programs will resume. Our goal is to be able to assure parents and participants that when programs do resume, they will be conducted in a manner meeting all guidelines in place at the time in order to provide a safe environment.
