It is with a heavy heart that I share with you all that the Board of Directors has chosen to postpone CAMP HOPE for the summer of 2020. After prayerful consideration and much discussion at our Board Meeting, we have come to the determination that the safest choice for our campers, homeowners, and staff members is to maintain social distancing protocols through the summer. This decision was not an easy one, and in no way was it made lightly. Various options, scenarios, and logistics were discussed at length in order to make the decision that will be best for our participants and our organization in both the short and long term.
Although we will not be holding CAMP in person, our counseling staff is excited for the new challenge of creating an online CAMP HOPE community that will support our campers throughout the summer. Please ensure that you are following our accounts on both Facebook and Instagram as information regarding a virtual summer program will be forthcoming through these platforms. The staff is also working on designing a limited edition CAMP HOPE 2020 t-shirt that will be available for purchase digitally. More information and the design of this t-shirt is forthcoming.
Thank you, as always, for your continued support and love for CAMP HOPE. Please know that your church families are in our thoughts and prayers as we move through this season of uncertainty. We truly appreciate you all and are excited to see everyone when we come out the other side of this global crisis.
