Update on Community Camp for 2020

Lara Schopp Community Camp, Connect, Uncategorized

It is with great sadness that we have decided to cancel Christian Community Camp for 2020.

Several things that lead us to this difficult decision. We want to keep people safe — inside our community and in the communities we visit. (Estes Park is a destination for many people from all of the US/World). We also want to be diligent with the finances in all our ministry areas, in order to grow and continue in future years, (one empty room in the lodge puts camp in a deficit.) The YMCA of the Rockies is letting us cancel our visit with no financial obligations to them.

Using the information we have available to us at the moment there are many restrictions that would alter the camp experience for all, some of these things are: advance reservations are required to enter the park and is limited 60 percent of normal capacity, day camp is offered to children in the group they came with and you must register for all five days, no more than 10 people can gather together outside of their cabin (meaning no hayride, no vespers at the chapel).

While we know that regulations are changing on a weekly and sometimes daily basis, we don’t know what the next couple of months will bring and we want to give your family time to plan an alternative experience for this summer.

You can forward your payments to Community Camp 2021 which is July 17-24, 2021 or you can receive a refund for what you have paid. Please contact April by June 12 about what your family would like to do.
