After consideration by the Wi-Ne-Ma Christian Camp Board at its meeting on May 16, it was decided to cancel all Youth Camps through July 25th.
Concerning the remaining youth camps in August; it was recommended that we plan to hold multiple shorter camps that would meet the State’s requirements.
The result is that the current camp schedule is no longer in effect. Those who have registered for a camp session in June and July will have their registration cancelled and will be contacted concerning options for refund of what was paid.
Those who have registered for a youth camp in August will also have their registrations cancelled with refund options.
We plan to present a revised schedule for August with some different options and pricing that will be announced no later than June 26. Registration will re-open at the same time with different schedule and pricing options.
There are several critical conditions that must be met in order to hold the Camps in August. 1. The State of Oregon needs to remove the current restriction on opening or operating an overnight camp session for children. 2. The Camp needs to implement a number of policies and procedures concerning Screenings for Covid-19, Contact Tracing, Physical Distancing, Stringent cleaning protocols, and changes to food service management. 3. Program leadership for these camp sessions needs to be in place to hold these modified sessions.
Like everyone else, our plans for summer 2020 were turned upside down and inside out due to Covid-19. Camp will continue to be one of the best experiences you can offer a child. The health and safety of our children during this time is of prime importance, so the Board and Staff of Wi-Ne-Ma Christian Camp will continue to monitor developments to the guidelines coming out from regulatory agencies for operating overnight camps. Our prayer is that God will make a way for some youth camps to open this summer. And, if not, our prayer is that He will open an unexpected door of opportunity further down the road.
