Pausing In-Person CONNECTIONS Outings

November 10, 2020

As you may have seen in recent news, COVID-19 cases have greatly increased and will likely continue to rise. After much consideration (and at the strong recommendation of our Camp Nurse) it is with a heavy heart that we share all in-person Camp Encourage activities, including Connections, are temporarily placed on hold. This decision was not made lightly and was reached only after several conversations with our Camp Nurse. We are incredibly grateful for her knowledge and expertise! 

If your camper was registered for the movie outing on November 21, Kelly will be in touch regarding a refund. We do plan to reschedule this specific event for a later date, when it’s deemed safe to gather. Your camper will be guaranteed a slot on the rescheduled date. 

At this point, we are still planning for a 2021 camp season, even if it has to look different than past seasons.  Our wee staff will meet this weekend (virtually)to begin making plans for next year.  We sure need something to look forward to, yes? Thus, be watching for updates regarding future Connections outings and future camps.

In the meantime, be sure to take advantage of our Virtual Programming options, including weekly programming videos and bi-weekly interactive Zoom sessions.  Be watching for updates about a Holiday drive thru on December 13th where we’ll distribute treasures and tons of love as you drive by. We are also still decorating yards with encouraging signs! If your camper could use a little love from Camp Encourage, you may sign up HERE.  Campers whose yards have already been decorated are welcome to sign up again. 

If we can be of assistance in any way during this difficult time, please don’t hesitate to reach out.  

Take good care, Camp Encourage Staff
