State Police Cancel Camps Due to Coronavirus
SKIPPACK PA – The 2020 edition of the annual Sunny Day Camp held by Pennsylvania State Police Troop K, which occupies barracks in Skippack, Media and Philadelphia, has been canceled – along with all other spring and summer camps across the state for which troopers are responsible – in response to the coronavirus outbreak, the state announced this week.
The Troop K camp was scheduled for June 27 at the Brandywine Youth Club in Delaware County. That’s been taken off the calendar, as well as Sunny Day Camps of 11 other troops; Camp Cadet, and the Commissioner’s Honor Camp. “This decision was made with the health and safety of all attendees, staff, and community partners in mind. We look forward to resuming the programs in 2021,” according to state police Commissioner Col. Robert Evanchick.
Sunny Day Camp programs are one-day events for children and adults with special needs or disabilities, and their families.
All the camp programs have “deep roots in our department, and are a source of pride for the personnel whose hard work and dedication make them possible every year,” Evanchick added.
