ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) — Camp Good Days and Special Times are developing safe ways to operate ahead of the summer months.

If it's allowed to operate, there are three potential models.

The first is traditional programs which would mean overnight and day camps.

The second is family retreats, which would be a hybrid option so some campers could participate virtually.

And the third mode is completely virtual.

"It's difficult for our kids to have a chance to just be kids again and share that experience with probably the only people in the world who can really understand what it's like to be them, and that's other children who are dealing with cancer. So the opportunity to attend camp gives them a chance to be a kid again," said Gary Mervis, Founder of Camp Good Days.

Last year, the camp had to shut down all activities due to the COVID-19 pandemic. 

The camp says this year's final decision will come from the state and it will post updates on its website.
