June 3, 2020: At 11:00 am this morning the Armed Services YMCA Fort Bragg staff were informed by the Harnett County School District that we would be unable to operate Summer Camp at their facilities due to a district decision to remain closed for the summer. This unfortunately means that we must cancel Operation Camp at Highland Elementary, scheduled to begin on Monday, June 8.
However, we want to ensure that all families in need of child care services over the summer know other options available. We have compiled a list of summer camps provided by other organizations on or around Fort Bragg, including their contact information. We hope this will allow you to find a replacement camp quickly and effectively. Click here to download information on other camps in the area.
We will also be launching, at no-cost, virtual camp in the coming weeks. As we solidify details and schedules we will share that with you via email, social media, and our website. Our goal is to provide our military families activities that engage the mind, body, and soul to make Summer 2020 memorable and fun.
For those who have been making payments for Operation Camp already, we will continue to hold a credit on your account. This credit can be used for future child child care services via our before and after school program. If you do not plan to utilize future services with the Armed Services YMCA Fort Bragg, please send us an email reply or give us a call and we will be pleased to issue you a refund.
For anyone who applied for scholarship support for Summer Camp, please note that we will continue to have financial support for military families throughout the school year in our child care program. We will release that information and application closer to the start of the 2020-2021 school year.
We cannot express how disappointed we are to not be serving you in person. However, we are dedicated to ensuring that we meet the needs of our military families. Please do not hesitate to contact me or any staff member by calling 910-436-0500. We look forward to hearing from you.
Executive Director, Armed Services YMCA Fort Bragg
