After careful review of available information relating to the impact of the coronavirus and COVID-19, and after careful consultation with St. Andrew’s Regional Ministries Management Committee, our Children and Families Minister Lisa Penzo, and our Camp Caravan Coordinator Jillian Cowan we have made the difficult decision to cancel Camp Caravan for Summer 2020.
While this was an extremely difficult decision to make, we felt this was the best way to proceed during such an unprecedented global situation. We recognize that the province of Alberta may be entering the relaunch stages by summer, however for the health and safety of our staff, campers and volunteers we believe it is the right decision for our programming. The most important thing is that everyone stays healthy and safe.
Like many of you, our summer doesn’t feel complete without camp! We never envisioned this scenario. Still, we know that God is love. We trust that when we take action out of love for others, Christ’s love flows through us. As Easter people, we look to the resurrected Christ and with that same hope, we live in a present ripe with new opportunities, and await a future that is brighter and more beautiful than anything we can imagine.
We look forward to Summer 2021 and hope and pray that you will join us for the journey. As we move forward, we ask that you join us as we pray for our campers who will now miss out on their joy-filled week at camp as we know camp can be a life-changing experience for many.
