With the school year coming to an end, parents in America are facing a new challenge - how to entertain their children during their summer break.

Usually, there would be hundreds of camps open, but as the coronavirus continues to affect daily life in the US, most facilities can't guarantee they will open.
The Ontario government has cancelled overnight camps for children for the summer, and there is uncertainty over whether day camps will operate in July and August. Polly Hodbetts, owner of Camp Hurontario, says there won't be summer camp there for the first time in 73 years. 
Coronavirus complicates things for families
Summer camps directors are trying to decide whether to open their gates during the coronavirus pandemic. The CDC just released preliminary guidelines should they choose to open. Camp owner and New York State Democratic Chairman Jay Jacobs joins CBSN to discuss.
