As many of you continue to monitor the changes that are occuring due to COVID-19, this page will provide updates related to FLX Adventure Camp at Paddle-N-More.

The process to provide our summer camp programs in the last two years was much easier than when the COVID pandemic first began. At FLX Adventure Camp at Paddle-N-More, we want to continue to provide quality outdoor recreation programming that creates balance in the lives of children.

One thing we all have noticed is the need for flexibility! Please know, things can still change based on how this pandemic continues to drive policy and regulations. In a day, in a week, in a month.

Because we had to cancel some of our more specialized programs and to keep up with new guidelines over the past two years, there were several changes made to how we operationally run our water-sports camps. We are now back to our original operational formats.

Our goal as we head into the 2023 summer camp season is to continue to create an engaging water-sports atmosphere all while working to follow COVID-19 related guidelines and protocol to keep both campers and counselors healthy. 

To date, the following changes have been made:

What we are doing:

  • Due to increased labor costs and costs related to changes made to our operational procedures, we do need to increase our prices this coming season. We do work hard to keep our prices reasonable, but to run camps accordingly and make sure our camp counselors receive proper training and compensation, we realized raising the prices was a necessity.
  • Creating a full week of watersports camp training with COVID-19 specific protocol and scenario training.
  • We are actively examining and streamlining our arrival screening and health response procedures for our camp programs as instructed by the NYS DOH, the CDC and the American Camp Association.
  • Continue to follow our cleaning and sanitization procedures to include the specific anti-viral measures suggested/required by our local health department and CDC.
  • Increasing our hand washing and hygiene protocol by encouraging handwashing and providing hand sanitizer.
  • Our camp staff are committed to staying home when we have signs or symptoms of any illness and working with our county to supply regular testing for camp staff and employees.
  • Face coverings are strongly recommended during check in and check out times as well as during the day for any camper experiencing signs of illness.
  • Cancelled activities that require extensive travel/transportation – all parents/guardians have been refunded for the cancellation
    • Destination Exploration Adirondack Canoe Adventure
    • Standup Paddleboard Whitewater Skills Camp
  • Monitoring both camp counselors and campers daily for signs of illness.
  • All health protocol will be reviewed and monitored by our health director.

Please understand – It takes a team!

Disclaimer: As much as we would love to state we can keep COVID-19 out of our camp, we cannot guarantee that statement. There are a lot of unknowns with this virus. We are taking a risk by still providing an engaging summer camp experience for your children. You are also taking a risk by enrolling your child/children in our camps.

Do know this! We still value providing quality programs that not only provide fun and teach skills through water-sports, we also work toward building courage, leadership, and compassion in the campers we work with. We will continue to build those values into our programming, all while developing and following guidelines and protocol to reduce the chances of the virus entering our camp. It really truly takes a team! That team includes the crew at FLX Adventure Camp at Paddle-N-More and YOU!
