The health and safety of our families is still our top priority, and we are committed to supporting all efforts to help keep our community healthy and strong. We are constantly evaluating guidance from the state and CDC to ensure that we are meeting the needs of our military family in the best way possible.
Currently, we are offering some of our programs as VIRTUAL Summer Sessions and some of our programs in person as allowed. Read more about those programs below.
OPERATION SUMMER CAMP
Our Summer Camp is in full swing in Hampton Roads. It looks a little bit different this year as we maintain physical distance and sanitize throughout the day... but that hasn't stopped our campers from having a blast! They're building and creating, playing games with friends and even getting out for some local field trips.
In order to maintain the highest level of care for all children, we are adhering to CDC Guidelines and best practices and screening all children upon arrival. Our camp registrations are limited to maintain social distance. We are sanitizing at regular intervals throughout the day and reinforcing regular hand washing.
OPERATION LITTLE LEARNERS
Our Online Summer Session began Tuesday, June 16. We've got so many fun videos and activities to share with you. Because these sessions are recorded, you're able to work through them at your own pace. We'll also be hosting some live events in our Facebook Group over the summer.
As always, Operation Little Learners is FREE and open to all active duty dependents between the ages of 18 months and 5 years. You must register for the summer session to receive your email invitation. We are also offering monthly field trip opportunities that allow us to maintain physical distance and follow guidelines.
We're SO EXCITED to announce that Operation Hero, our school-aged program has made the virtual jump. Normally an in-person after-school enrichment program, Op Hero serves military kids in elementary schools all over Hampton Roads. With the school closure in March, our registered kiddos were left without their opportunity to participate. We've spent the last few months adapting our program to make it accessible online while maintaining the most important lessons and opportunities for connection. The program launches Monday, June 29.
