The following is an extract from Gracefield's update re COVID-19:
On Monday, March 16th, all ACQ members received communication from its Executive Director to close their camps immediately until further notice. We are complying with this directive.
As you can imagine, there are many questions to be answered and uncertainty about the specific implications for GCCRC which operates a number of varied and semi-independent camping services e.g. co-ed summer programs, individual and group retreats, private tent and wilderness camping, private rustic cabin accommodations and private seasonal trailer residential sites. Suffice it so say, determining if the provincial directive applies to all of these services is difficult in these early days. We are working on getting clarity as we move forward. We are also preparing contingency plans to maximize our ability to open and staff the camp this summer while ensuring the safety of all.
Based on the current information available and subject to further directives from our provincial authorities, we are targeting to have the camp open for Canada Day and to have summer staff begin to start work at camp on June 1st. At this time, no summer programs are being deferred or cancelled.
We will continue to provide updates through our website and social media when new information becomes available.
If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the Gracefield office at email@example.com
This summer's CY2020 event has been postponed to 2021.
Every other summer hundreds of youth, young adults, leaders and invited guests come together to celebrate our vibrant faith. It's a unique opportunity for them to be called to deeper discipleship through soul-satisfying worship, dynamic speakers and leaders, fascinating discussions about their faith and weird and wonderful recreation events.
Mark it in your calendars for next year and see you then!
