Invitation to Virtual Camp 2020!
Dear Ohio Region,
In late April, we shared the tough news of the decision to close Camp Christian for summer 2020 for the health and safety of all of those who are involved with our camping program. It was a devastating decision, but we knew it was what was right for us to do.
Our directors have done an incredible job of brainstorming, sharing resources, and coming up with some creative alternatives so that anyone who wants to will be able to share in our programs this summer! Using a virtual-camp portal, we will be sharing in camp songs, lessons, quest groups, keynotes, evening vespers services, and even hoe-downs, talent shows!
We will be following the condensed camp schedule that was provided at the beginning of April when we were exploring alternative options for camp this summer. It is as follows:
CYF – July 5-11
Most of the programming provided for the week of camp will include videos, music, and documents that will be available for you to use and view at your leisure, or even after the week is done. However, some of the activities will be held at specific times and dates (i.e. a zoom small group gathering or cabin meeting) so it will still be important to try and be available for your specific week of programming.
Those who have already sent in an RSVP to camp have already received this email. If you have not previously RSVPd, you will need to email firstname.lastname@example.org with the following information:
We know that it will not be the same as being at Camp Christian. But we also know that the spirit of Camp Christian is the Holy Spirit and that the ministry of Camp is not tied to the place, but tied to our hearts and our spirits of love and compassion.
In that spirit, we hope to see you all this summer. We hope you will share this opportunity with your friends. We hope the love of God that we know through Jesus Christ, which we come to feel at Camp Christian will still find its way into your heart in 2020. And we pray for continued health and strength that we may all be back together again next summer.
Peace and Love,
