Due to Covid all 2020 Summer Reading Camp activities will take place outdoors. A special tent has been set in the dock for reading &  theme presentation activities. Lunch will continue to be outside. Boys will have to come dressed ready for sports & pool. They cannot go inside the house to change before or after sports. Boys go inside the house only for essential needs one at a time, and (if they do not have one) will be given a mask. 

If possible we will have an activity day for the boys in Roseaire, transportation to and from Roseaire will have to be arranged by you. For those living in Miami area you have the option to send your boys with two junior staff members by TRI-RAIL. Details will be given when this activity is confirmed. 

It is clear that we cannot run this program maintaining distance among the boys, nor will it be possible to avoid all the time close contact with the adults: junior and senior staff. For this reason all parents have to be aware of this and we will all be required to sign a release of liability for Covid.  

June 8 - June 18:  7th & 8th 
June 22 - July 2:  5th & 6th 



The cost will be $100 for the whole program, paid in advance to facilitate things, payable to Kingsland Foundation, by cash, check, credit card or ZELLE: or 305-710-2167.

The program will start if there are a minimum of 8 participants registered by Sunday June 7. There are a maximum of 12 spots.
