In the Magazine: February/March 2021

The February/March issue is full of camp advice and resources, family activities, and post-vaccine safety information.

It’s been a heck of a year (to say the least!), with socially distant birthday parties, helping the kids with remote learning, wearing masks when leaving the house, and more. The good news is things are slowly getting back to (relative) normal. Day and specialty camps have been making plans for a fun and safe summer, while overnight camps officially got the go-ahead to open this summer in New York. Vaccine distribution is well underway, but that doesn't mean things will instantly return to normal—you’ll still need to wear masks in public, socially distance, and follow other safety precautions to ensure your family and your community stays safe. Finally, spring break is quickly approaching, and there are plenty of family-friendly destinations in the tri-state area to get away for a few days. Bonus: They’re all within a few hour’s drive of NYC.
