Covid-19 Update

GLEC has completed a successful summer camp with zero cases of Covid-19 amongst our staff and campers. We have followed the recommended measures put in place by the City of Philadelpha and the Center of Disease Control to keep staff and participants safe.

With the summer now behind us and as we enter the seventh month of the pandemic GLEC has decided to do a gentle re-open. You may be asking yourself, what does this look like? Well a gentle re-opening will include the following:

  1. GLEC is hosting a Community Learning group for students who need a place to be while their parents are at work. The youth in this group were carefully selected from our summer campers. The children in this group will receive assistance with virtual learning and homework to ensure their success for the school year. 

  2. A limited number of fitness classes are returning to GLEC in September. The classes Sculpt and Tone being taught by Jorge Santos and Stretch and Go being taught by Doris. Classes require pre-registration either by phone or online. Classes also have limited to registration so that participants can safely social distance.

  3. Aquatics programs have returned. Lane swim, youth swim lessons and modified group lessons are being offered. Groups are also allowed to rent the pool.

 GLEC is anticipating the day we will be able to allow members and guests to walk through our doors again. We miss everyone of you and we want all of you to stay safe and healthy. We are continue to update our Facebook, Instagram and website as we arrive to new decisions. 

We hope that our members understand our current decision and our decisions as we move forward.

Thank you for your continued support.

Yours truly,
