Summer Camp 2021

Summer Camp 2021

LOMC is currently evaluating all possibilities for summer camp this year. Our current goal is to have a decision by end of January or early February. We are taking into account many numerous details that are global and also unique to LOMC:

  • When will vaccines be widely available for staff and campers?
  • What restrictions might be in place by our local health department?
  • Evaluating our facilities for best practices related to COVID-19.
  • Financial strain over the past year and to be cautious not to cause further harm.
  • Provide the best life-giving/changing EXPERIENCE for all who visit this summer…
    • A place of SANCTUARY
    • Practice COMMUNITY
    • Explore CREATION
    • Live by FAITH 

We are diligently working to create an amazing possibility for summer and here is a glimpse into what we are discussing:

  • Current practice is to place campers in cohorts or small groups of 10 or less to help prevent spread of COVID.
    • This alone changes the face of what we typically experience as summer camp.
  • Discussing whether day camp can take place.
  • Pondering how to allow church groups to participate.
    • Larger groups placed into smaller groups and how groups get to LOMC without large transport.
  • If summer camp takes place, we will be offering less weeks than previous years.
  • We will not be offering offsite Vacation Bible Camp at churches.
  • So, so, and very so much more to make sure everyone is safe and has a fantastic faith-filled time!
