Coronavirus in New Jersey: What concerts, festivals and shows have been rescheduled, canceled. (4/3/20) – NJ.com

Posted By on April 6, 2020

Trying to keep stuck-at-home young ones engaged during the coronavirus lock-in can be challenging. Liberty Lake in Mansfield hopes it has devised a way to make happy campers out of housebound kids.

Liberty Lake owner/director Andy Pritikin and longtime camp director Brandi Carnivale-Anderson have developed a Virtual Camp, putting together hours of archived programs along with live programming online. The free resources can be found on the camps Facebook page, Instagram, new Pinterest page and on a dedicated Liberty Lake Virtual Camp webpage, which includes an online virtual tour of the 60-acre facility in Mansfield.

We feel that our role in the lives of families is to figure out how to make lemonade out of lemons, while being a resource of youth development, and helping keep focus on the important things in life, like quality time with family and the opportunity to learn and explore together, explained Pritikin.

Liberty Lake Virtual Camp kicked off Monday, March 23, with a full-on Monday Assembly including a military flag raising at the backdrop of the camps lakeside amphitheater. Burlington native and current East Brunswick Science teacher Regan Gillespie then started things off with an improvised version of The Wake Up Song. Regan, who attended Liberty Lake as a 5-year-old camper and now supervises its high-ropes adventure program, filmed herself on her phone and turned the session into a Tick Tok.

Week ones itinerary also included a photo scavenger hunt, in which children were instructed to snap pictures of specific blooming flowers and post them into an event page for judging by the camp photographers. And for craft time, a video was posted of summertime chef, Sean Stu OBrien of Pemberton, teaching how to make a paper airplane.

Pritikin admitted the internet camp is just an interim replacement for the real thing. During the summer camp season, Liberty Lake is proud to be an outdoors, (computer) screen-free environment. And when this current situation thankfully ends, kids and parents are going to want to be outdoors, away from screens like never before.

"Were all overdosing on screens right now, which may be what society needs to re-appreciate the virtues of nature, face-to-face communication, and true social connection.
