April 24, 2020 Update About Events & Summer Camp Sessions
This past week, the Board of Directors met and addressed some scheduled events.
Camp Open House
In order to facilitate not having large group gatherings, we have canceled the Camp Open House scheduled for May 24. We are planning an “End of Summer Bash” at THE ARK in August. Be on the lookout for more details on this event.
Clean Up Day
For the same reasons, the May 16 Camp Clean Up Day is also canceled. However, we hope many of you will still want to come and help get the property/facilities ready for this season’s activities. This will allow us to limit the amount of volunteers on the property at any given time and their proximity to one another. Please call or email THE ARK @ 765-395-3638 or firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know when you would like to come and the type of work you would like/be able to help with.
Summer Camp Sessions
You may be wondering what plan B looks like. If we are not allowed to have camp in June, we have a plan that packs the camp experiences into the month of July. This will combine some sessions but provides the best way to still facilitate communities of grace where God is in charge.
What we can say at the moment is Mephibosheth Ministries are planning to move their camps to August. This gets a higher risk population a little further away from the pandemic. This will also move camp sessions Ziba and Hands & Feet who are scheduled alongside the Mephibosheth Camps.
We will let you know the first week of May what the plan is. Right now we still hope to follow the currently printed schedule and encourage you to register for the camp you’d like to attend.
