Kamp Kenmore – Canceled for 2021
Due to emerging access and safety concerns related to two upcoming construction projects, we are canceling Kamp Kenmore for 2021.
Last week, we received clarification from the City of Kenmore that the next phase of significant construction on 68th Avenue will begin in the coming weeks. This will result in 68th being closed for 8 months between 182nd and 190th (this includes the entire length of Northshore’s boundary with 68th). The construction schedule on 68th will overlap with construction by Westcott Homes on their newly acquired property east of our building. Part of that construction will include demolition of Northshore’s parking lots to install stormwater detention tanks.
It seems likely that, for most of the summer, access to Northshore will be difficult, and there will be no way to access the building without going through a significant construction project. This results in difficulty for families during drop-off and pick-up, and will restrict kampers from walking to parks and such, as well as being outside of our building.
We regret the inconvenience this has caused, and recommend that families consider the daycamp programs at Cedar Springs Camp (www.cedarsprings.camp/camps/summer). It is an excellent program with 8 locations, with the closest in Bothell, Lynnwood, and Mountlake Terrace.
