More and more events and programs are being canceled this summer due to the coronavirus pandemic. This time Saratoga has had to make some decisions regarding summer camps and programs. According to News 10 ABC, Saratoga Springs has made the tough decision to cancel all of its summer programs and summer camps. The coronavirus is the reason for the closings citing social distancing. They believe it's too risky to hold the camps this summer.

Saratoga Springs wants the community to know, however, that parks will remain open. Organized events and places such as playground equipment, basketball courts, and other group activities will not be open. If you do visit a park, you are reminded to

Saratoga Springs is canceling all summer camps and summer programs due to concerns over the coronavirus.obey the guidelines set by New York state and the United States Center for Disease Control and Prevention.

Saratoga Springs follows the Town of Clifton Park with canceling programs and postponing some events. They have postponed the Fourth of July fireworks until September. The town pools won't be opening on Memorial Day weekend and they are hoping to open them on July 1st depending on the Phase openings by the governor. The town of Clifton Park hasn't completely canceled their summer camp programs, but they are weighing their options about both full and half-day camps.

I feel like this only the beginning of the closures and postponements for summer in the Capital Region. We can only hope that we have a plan, if the camps are open, to follow safety protocols so that kids can have the best camp experience. I guess only time will tell.
