31 of the infected ... The K-2 camp is for teenagers, aged 13-18, according to Kanakuk's website.

Sounds like the perfect time to force schools to open by threatening to withhold their funding.

And I was told yesterday by a maintenance guy that they won't get any serious cases or die from it. You know he is better than a doctor.

the kids could've dressed up like native americans, and pretended they were getting smallpox.

I saw some guy replying to my friend's mother's Facebook post saying the same awful crap and even stated that it's a proven fact.

Best case scenario, kid gets it but is asymptomatic which becomes the worst case scenario for everyone else in that kids life.

How hard is this to comprehend?

Doctors, LOL.  Some nerd reads books for eight years and were supposed to kiss their asses.  I went to the school of hard knocks, why ain't anybody kissing my ass?

Schools should continue with remote learning until we have a vaccine and everyone has taken it

How are camps even open? , here in Ontario all camps are closed this year . The US response to covid boggles the mind.

We were going to put our son in camp for the first time this year. The camp was taking a lot of precautions but we just couldn't justify it. When we called and pulled him out, they said they were getting as many new applications as drop out.

Our school district surveyed parents and found that 75% of them are idiots that want schools to open on time with the kids back in the buildings. First day of school is supposed to be August 17.

Looks like they've got a little over a month to come to their senses.

I used to work at a camp.  There is NO WAY to social distance.  Whenever you are outside your cabin (kid or staff) someone is going to bump into you like you were riding the Central Line in London.

Luckily, the camp I worked at didn't open.  Trying to open was hubris.

It's all about risk vs reward.  I live the smallest, shiatiest house in the area (all that I could afford) because of the school district and both Mrs. SLEZE and I work.  I will be sending SLEZE Jr and SLEZE III to school with masks.  After about a month or two when the school is closed due to the next spike, we will be ready when they get sent home (and adjust our work schedules).  We will continue social distancing with the exception of school, continue 100% mask wearing outside the house and step up hygiene before and after school.

Here's the Risk Analysis:
Severity/Hazard: Hospitalization/Death of our immediate family
Probability: The likelihood of them getting hospitalized is very low and the likelihood of Mrs. SLEZE and I getting hospitalized is low.

The only spreading they will be doing is to us, the other kids in class and the teachers.  Is it a selfish choice?  Yes, because we are only really analyzing our family and doing a minimal amount of mitigation for others.  The reason we are taking the risk is because we prioritized school.  While the in-school experience has been OUTSTANDING, the distance learning (at least this spring) was just pathetic.  Hopefully they will get it together by Fall.

At least we are being honest about the Risk we are taking.

/do we get credit for being honest about our selfishness?

I think you get extra credit for being honest about it.

Everyone has to make their own risk/ reward analysis. It's just too bad that so many people are unable to understand how to do that.

Hopefully schools can do better than summer camps.

A "Christian" summer camp organization in Southern Missouri is called

Kanakuk
Kamps and the attendees are called
Kampers

I feel like there is some meaning I'm missing.

We're about the same.  Honestly, as I work for a health care system and have to be on site a number of days a week (not because I do direct care but because the PPE situation is a mess and they have professionals with things like JDs doing laundry service on top of their normal work), I was using the school-aged daycare system when school was cancelled and I have my kid in camp now.  Most parents favor opening the schools (even in my area which is heavily scientific, college-educated, etc).  My state has done a pretty good job so far and there have been no outbreaks at camps or the care sites so far.  Kids can't distance-learn well by themselves until they're at least in high school without having a dedicated home-schooling parent, which most dual-income families don't have.  Europe opened schools up during the latter half of the school year or, in the case of Sweden, never closed them and, while there have been some hot spots, it was not the panicked catastrophe everyone is making it out to be.  Make the kids wear masks (and punish those that don't) and stagger days to reduce class size.  My husband is essential and has not been home any of this time, I'm essential and have not been home for a lot of this.  Is it selfish, kinda', but for us at least the risk has always been here for us personally.  We've been out at parks/the beach and  the kids are already playing with each other.  While it's not the same as dumping them in school, they're not exactly isolating either.

/none of this counts for places like Florida or Oklahoma, most of the South...that's going to be a nightmare
