A Message from Mrs. Lindsey about Children's Camp

I hope you’re all doing well this week!  You may have already seen the video we posted on our social media announcing camp decisions for this summer, but we realize that not all families are able to view those and so I’m sending you an email with the same information as well.

I know these past few months have been very difficult as you’ve battled school changes, schedule changes, closures to many of your favorite places, and cancellations to some of the activities you look forward to most – one of which being our summer kids camp.  I want to thank you for your patience as we’ve spent the past few weeks discussing the possibility of still having camp in light of the COVID-19 situation.  In trying to be both hopeful and wise, we made the decision that the original date of June 22nd-26th would not be a wise time to bring a group to camp.

Through discussions with Camp Kulaqua about this, they did give us the option of coming to camp the week of July 20th and so we have spent many hours praying and talking through this option as a staff and with Camp Kulaqua leadership.  Ultimately we have decided that we will sadly not be offering Kids Camp this year.  Following trends of many kids summer camps and programs in our area, given that illnesses in general tend to spread quickly and easily among children, and knowing that younger children are less hygienic all around we felt that it was best to err on the side of caution for our children and families.

For our Children’s Ministry, we are monitoring closely our ability to gather as a group, and as soon as it is deemed safe to do so, we will be offering several fun options for kids.  While we know these will not be the same as being at camp for a week, once it becomes possible we want to still provide options for your kids to come have fun, spend time with their friends in a few unique ways, and grow in their relationship with the Lord.  And really, if kids have half the fun as we’re having planning them then it’ll be a great time!  We’ll be communicating these activities through all of our social media and email so keep a look out for that.

For those of you who have already registered and made any payment for camp, we are in the process of refunding that to you now.  We will be contacting each of you to confirm an address where we can send that refund to you.

If you have any questions about camp, please feel free to reach out to the Children’s Ministry team.  We are here for you and miss you!
