Cal-Pac Summer Camp WILL HAPPEN this summer, one way or another! How?
Here are three scenarios to be determined by conditions set by the government health officials and the Cal-Pac Conference:
Option 1 – Summer camp would happen at the campsites. Our facilities will be clean and ready. Medical staff will provide safe protocols. We will follow government healthy and safety guidelines, and a great time together outdoors will be had by all!
Note: The American Camp Association is in talks with the Center for Disease Control in Washington, D.C., to determine safe and healthy conditions that need to be in place for in-person summer camp to happen in 2020. We are also closely monitoring the guidelines set by the State of California and the countries where camp takes place.
Option 2 – Summer camp would be held on-line for a week, each day of camp, with a schedule of activities, worship, small groups, crafts, etc. Our leadership teams and staff are working on this model right now with the goal of bringing campers together to grow in faith and community.
Option 3 – There are 3 weekends tentatively scheduled for Summer Camp Reunion Retreats at Lazy W Ranch (September 5-7) and Camp Wrightwood (October 16-18), and Camp Cedar Glen (December 4-6). All age groups including graduating seniors would be invited and we would do a mini version of the summer camp program.
A decision about these options will be made no later than May 29. Multiple scenarios are possible.
In the meantime, please register for camp so we know how best to plan ahead! The $25 registration fee is all that is required at this time. No matter which option happens, the fee may be used to help us with one of the above scenarios or you may request a refund. Go to www.calpacumc.org/summercamp to register or go to the website of the camp you wish to attend: www.campcedarglen.org, www.lazywranch.org, or www.campwrightwood.org
And here is a link for a survey https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/Z655PN2 that will help us plan even better for this summer and beyond. We are asking that pastors, youth leaders, children’s workers and parents fill this out so that we can best understand what your expectations are at this time.
Please pray, register, fill-out the survey and anticipate the joy that will be Cal-Pac Summer Camp 2020. God is with us! Be safe and at peace!
