As school ends in many areas and kids start going to camp, I am curious how this summer’s schedule is going to play out in various communities. Because of the way the calendar is, we are holding in Tammuz already, with the 17th of Tammuz next week. Tisha B’Av falls in the middle of July and Rosh Chodesh Elul is in early August.
How will camps be dealing with this? I imagine that bochurim will have to go to their respective yeshivos come Elul, so what will camps be doing about counselors for the second half?
Also, some camps are ending earlier than usual. Will schools be starting earlier? If they are not, how much time will there even be before Rosh Hashana arrives? I imagine not much.
I am interested in hearing from Matzav readers how this unique and challenging calendar schedule will be playing out in their areas. If anyone has any ideas or suggestions to make it less challenging, please share them here.
