  • Chaim says:

    This needs to be challenged in court. We don’t need King Cuomo protecting us from ourselves in his nanny socialist state. Kids locked away in a camp are not a threat to society in any way. Our kids needs structure and to get back to enjoying normality again.

  • Sad says:

    This is evil. People are suffering, and this is their one chance to try to recuperate.
    There is a special place in hell reserved for people like this.

  • camp student says:

    I was looking forward to camp all summer. I was in quarantine for three much without social interactions. camp is when I get together with friends, and enjoy summer. I don’t know what I will do this summer know that I don’t have camp. and I know that many of my friends feel the same way. this is terrible news.

  • whisleblower says:

    Everyone to the streets! “Kids lives matter!”

  • Yochy says:

    If there was ever a year that sleep away camp was important to the kids, ITS THIS YEAR!!!!

    Shame on Governor Andrew Cuomo for not opening up!!!!

    If this would have been for George Floyd, they would have opened 123.

    Governor Cuomo, stop harassing the Jewish people!!!!

  • FL says:

    Yemach Shemo…but watch the sheeple keep voting Democrat the next election.

  • bizarre says:

    I can’t understand this dumb decision. And the Governor also vastly underestimates the financial impact camps have on many businesses in the mountains. Many camps are now gonna move to New Hampshire, VT, PA, or wherever. But the businessesin the catskills will suffer greatly.

  • Branovicher says:

  • Say it like it is says:

    We are all being played by the socialist liberal Democrats. The faster we all learn that, the better off we will be.

    When asked about it in the daily Pravda news conference, he responded that the bathrooms were obviously public when you have those kids together in a bunk.


  • yoel says:

    we will open new places all over-stay calm
    The yeshivas in NY will go a bit longer and will not give off a full 9 weeks
    this will help alot as well
