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!
