Summer program and camp providers are entering an unprecedented summer as they prepare to provide a safe, enriching, and fun summer experience while managing changing safety protocols and challenges amidst the COVID-19 Pandemic.

The Connecticut After School Network has created a toolkit of resources to support planning for summer, which includes best practice and guidance in essential areas of summer programming and utilizes up-to-date information from the state of Connecticut, the CDC, and other national resources. Check out our blog post on Summer Roundtable Discussions and Resources for a recording of our Summer Planning Roundtable and Q&A document which will also be extremely useful. 

Resources are broken down into downloadable PDFs for ease of use during a busy summer.
