Families/Caregivers/Supports Coordinators:

It is with great sadness that I have to write to you all to inform you that we will be cancelling the first four weeks of our summer program. This is of course being sent to you because of someone who was scheduled to attend one of our camp weeks.

The social distancing and stay-at home orders have halted our shore house spring cleaning process and the process of finding and training staff. For these reasons we need to delay our summer program. As of right now, we will be keeping July and August shore weeks as they are. Things are changing weekly so Helping Hands cannot promise that all of these shore weeks will proceed as usual.

Thank you for understanding. If you have any questions, feel free to contact Jaimee Scott via email at or at the office, 610-754-6491.
