As the camp board has been meeting over this past winter, we have been working towards a plan where we hope that we will be able to have camp this summer (albeit in a form different than what we are used to.) We realize that due to whatever will be happening with COVID, in compliance with AHS guidelines, plans may change:
If conditions improve, we may be able to open up more
If conditions worsen, we may need to close down
Our plan at this point is to hold day camps (i.e. not overnight) for our children’s/youth camps, with the following schedule (which is close to what you would have seen at Christmas, though with some changes):
WIWACS (for young adults in Grade 12 and up) – June 11-13
Registration 7 pm June 11, concluding 11 am June 13
Soccer Camp (for boys and girls in Grades 4-12) – June 19
Registration 9 am, concluding 8 pm
Ladies’ Retreat (for women Grade 12 and up) – June 25-27
Registration 7 pm June 25, concluding 2 pm June 27
Family Camp (for families) – June 30 – July 3
Registration 7 pm June 30, concluding 11 am July 3
Sr High Camp (for boys and girls entering Grades 10-12 in the fall. Students finishing Grade 12 this year can attend if there are any open spaces.)
1 – July 5-7 – Registration at 9 am, concluding at 8 pm July 5&6, 4 pm July 7
2 – July 8-10 – Registration at 9 am, concluding at 8 pm July 8&9, 4 pm July 10
Jr High Camp (for boys and girls entering Grades 8-9 in the fall)
1 – July 12-14 – Registration at 9 am, concluding at 7 pm July 12&13, 4 pm July 14
2 – July 15-17 – Registration at 9 am, concluding at 7 pm July 15&16, 4 pm July 17
CTP (Counselor Training Program, for boys and girls entering Grades 10 (in the fall) and up) July 18-24
Day Camp (for boys and girls entering Grades K-3 in the fall)
1 – July 20-21 – Registration at 9 am, concluding at 4 pm both days
2 – July 22-23 – Registration at 9 am, concluding at 4 pm both days
CAYA Camp (for adults with disabilities) – July 24
Registration 9 am, concluding 8 pm
Intermediate Camp (for boys and girls entering Grades 6-7 in the fall)
1 – July 26-28 – Registration at 9 am, concluding at 6 pm July 5&6, 4 pm July 7
2 – July 29-31 – Registration at 9 am, concluding at 6 pm July 5&6, 4 pm July 7
Children’s Camp (for boys and girls entering Grades 4-5 in the fall)
1 – August 2-4 – Registration at 9 am, concluding at 6 pm August 2&3, 4 pm August 4
2 – August 5-7 – Registration at 9 am, concluding at 6 pm August 5&6, 4 pm August 7
Girls’ Camp (for girls entering Grades 7-12 in the fall)
1 – August 9-11 – Registration at 9 am, concluding at 7 pm August 9&10, 4 pm August 11
2 – August 12-14 – Registration at 9 am, concluding at 7 pm August 12&13, 4 pm August 14
The most significant changes (besides camp not being overnight) are that Soccer Camp and CAYA Camp will be only one day, and the Back-to-School Retreat won’t be happening. All other camps will be shorter than usual, to accommodate smaller numbers for social distancing. We recognize that this isn’t as much as any of us would like, but at least it’s something.
There will be a limit of 30 campers at each session
We ask that you when you register (**Registration opens April 1**) that you indicate which of the sessions you prefer of the 2 for your age grouping (for the ones with 2 options.)
We ask that you arrive and leave promptly, not early or late, so that we can use the little time that we have, well.
There will be a Covid protocol that we will let you know about as well, that you will need to adhere to (and you’ve done it lots already, so you know basically what it will be.)
There will NOT be transportation provided.
Our prayers are that conditions will loosen up so that we can do more, but it will be good to be able to meet together out at camp again, with God, this much at least.
