Monday was the first day of summer camp for many kids across the Island -- and a much different experience than last year.
While camps had capacity and mask protocols across their entire program in 2020, most have rolled those back for this year as they welcome kids back.
At Rolling River Day Camp, staff is celebrating 29 years in East Rockaway. The camp says some protocols will still be in place this summer, but it is at full capacity and "much more back to normal."
Marissa Allaben says campers will be able to intermingle more this summer, more activities will be on the docket and counselors who are vaccinated will not have to wear masks.
Camp director Mark Goodman says it's "camp the way it ought to be." He says he's excited that older campers will get to once again go on trips to places such as Adventureland and Splish Splash.
