WCTV Cancels Summer Youth Programs Due To COVID-19

Below is an announcement from Wilmington Community Television:

To Our Valued Students and Families,

At WCTV we strive to provide a place for young people to explore their creativity, learn new skills in video production, and create lasting friendships. The health and safety of the students who walk through our doors as well as our dedicated staff is very important to us. I regret to tell you that we have made the decision to cancel all of our Youth Summer Programs. We know you are disappointed and so are we!

This decision was made after careful review of the recent guidance issued by the Massachusetts Department of Public Health. There are specific fundamental points of compliance that serve as requirements for the operation of summer programs in Massachusetts that are simply too difficult to comply with including the need to maintain social distancing, ensuring that there is no contact with or between children and the need to ensure that participants do not share equipment or materials.

We are already planning new programs for the fall and some “pop-up” activities for late summer as restrictions are lifted. In the meantime, if you have already submitted payment please be in touch. WCTV is happy to issue you a refund. You also have the option to support WCTV by converting your deposit to a donation. Funds gifted to WCTV support our Scholarship Fund for High School Seniors as well our classes and operation throughout the year. Don’t hesitate to contact us for any reason.
