5/11/20 MCC COVID-19 Response Update
To help keep our community healthy and to comply with Virginia Governor Northam’s executive orders to help prevent the spread of COVID-19, the MCC Governing Board, in cooperation with MCC staff recommendations, has decided to cancel many of the center’s summer programs and events, including McLean Day and the July 4th Fireworks Celebration at Langley High School.
We are canceling our full-day summer camps, including Camp McLean and The Old Firehouse Summer Camp Trips and we are providing full refunds. Without the ability to hire staff, prepare activities and meet licensing requirements, we are unable to offer these programs. We have chosen to announce this decision now to allow our patrons and their families the opportunity to make alternative summer plans.
Depending on the health of our community, we may be able to offer a limited number of special activities in late summer. We will be offering, at no-cost, two- or three-day virtual activities during the time when we would have been holding camps. We will send you an update on our summer programs and offerings as soon as we have details and information available. Also, residents can look for updates on our website and social media platforms.
Thank you for your support and understanding as we all adjust and work to care for the greater community.
