Parents have a little more insight about how summer 2020 will unfold for their kids.  

During his daily press briefing on June 2, Governor Andrew Cuomo said that summer camps in New York will be permitted reopen on June 29. However, more guidelines are still expected to come, and a decision has yet to be made regarding sleepaway camps. You can catch the announcement below, roughly at the six-minute mark.

Additionally, city-run summer camps will not take place, according to the New York Daily News. Many programs throughout the five boroughs have switched to a virtual schedule and brand-new virtual offerings have emerged as a result of our several months at home. 

Schools are still expected to continue remote learning until the end of the year, and it's expected that a decision will be made regarding the 2020-2021 academic year some time this summer, July at the earliest. Meanwhile, New York City is still expected to enter Phase 1 of reopening on June 8
