Latest Camp News
- May 26th, 2020 -
First of all, I want to say a heart-felt thank you to all of you, our churches, ministers and deans for the way that you care for and support the camp ministry. Your love for the camp has shown greatly in your continued offerings, special gifts, letters and the many calls of concern letting us know of your prayers over the past couple of months.
This past Saturday the camp board met and decided that all camp programs with a start date during the month of June would be cancelled. The board plans to meet again in 3 weeks to determine if we can open our doors for our July programs.
As we make this announcement, we have several options for you:
- You may transfer your child to a camp session in July. Please be aware that there are still decisions to be made regarding July depending on what is allowed to open at that point and some or all July sessions may be cancelled.
- You may cancel your registration for this year. Any fees you may have paid can be refunded or you can designate all or a part of them as a donation to support the camp.
- We have created a 5-day program that can be done in your home called “Camp in a Box.” Each box will be filled with daily devotions, games, worship, hands-on activities, lessons and of course…your own camp shirt! Camp in a Box is geared toward the elementary age camper. The cost of the box is $50 (free shipping) and any camp fees already paid can be used towards your purchase.
Feel free to contact us regarding which option is best for your family. We will be reaching out to families over the next few days.
Many have asked about how the camp is doing financially. If our churches and individuals continue to give as they have in the past, we feel that the camp will be ok though it may get tight later in the year. We have cut expenses to a bare minimum and several churches & individuals have responded with special gifts to help us through this time.
Later this week will be sending out more information on how to order and receive your “Camp in a Box.” We hope that you will consider this option and find it to be an encouragement during this tough time. We want you to be encouraged…not discouraged! Please remember in everything, God is good!
