This decision was not reached lightly. It was made after countless hours consulting the advice of medical professionals, public health officials, camp experts, ministry leaders, and camper parents.
Our objective is to share the on-site camp experience with as many campers as possible this summer while maintaining a safe and healthy environment.
Camp this summer will look a little different. While the core of camp will remain the same, we have made adjustments to ensure the health and safety of our campers.

Our plan is to delay the start of the summer camp program to July 5th, with a completely new summer schedule with camper programs that last for 3 days and 2 nights with at least 18 hours between camper groups to provide adequate time for cleaning and disinfecting.
Each session will be limited to 40-50 campers and staff. Campers will stay in “cabin households” of 8-10 and will continue to physically distance from other “cabin households”.
We are working with the American Camp Association (ACA) and Environmental Health & Engineering, Inc. (EH&E) who are adapting the guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention for summer camps, as well as our local and state regulatory agencies.
Campers will need to register with a $100 Non-Refundable Deposit. Campers who were previously registered will have their deposits transferred to this summer or may transfer deposits to any future program. Final payment is due 7 days prior to the camper’s session.
Registration for each session will end 14 days prior to the start of the session.
Sessions this summer are scheduled for 3 days and 2 nights, either Sunday 2 pm-Tuesday 6 pm or Wednesday 2 pm-Friday 6 pm.
This summer camper cabins will cycle through 6 different Activity Rotations:
