Hello Friends of The SAAGNY Foundation,
We hope you and your families are safe and healthy. Just want to update you on the status of our summer events. Unfortunately, there will be no camp or school summer programming.
Since Happiness Is Camping had to cancel all sessions this summer, they are planning to give the kids a mix of activities at home - arts & crafts, outdoor challenges, Zoom sessions etc. and some live sessions each night that mirror their traditional evening activities. Neil Kirschner put us in touch with his nephew Michael Kirschner, a professional magician, who will be doing virtual shows for various camps this summer. We have arranged for him to do a show for these kids one evening. This is an interactive experience that uses mentalism and magic. We are so excited that the Foundation will be able to provide these kids with a meaningful experience during this difficult and disappointing time.
Given the nature of the students at Hilltop School, sadly this virtual magic show would not be feasible.
We so appreciate our wonderful volunteers and look forward to seeing you next year when summer activities may resume.
Stay safe and stay healthy.
