Life has been wild since March of 2020.
All of the adjustments and readjustments each of us has made, as well as the feelings of social isolation have left many people bereft, confused, and anxious. Even though children and youth astound us with their resiliency, they are certainly not exempt from the anxiety, stress, and loneliness of the past year.
Summer camp offers a break from the routines of everyday life. It is a joyful antidote to the feelings of listlessness and uncertainty. We are privileged to be able to provide our campers the break they need this summer!
Lots of research shows that summer camp is one of the most effective environments in which young people learn and grow. The camp experience promotes emotional, physical, social, and spiritual development in an environment where kids feel safe. Apart from the distractions of everyday life, Cedarkirk summer campers are free to build lasting friendships, truly be themselves, explore their faith, and revel in fun. We know that our campers will find what they need at camp this summer.
Not every family will choose to make summer camp part of their plans in 2022, and that’s okay. During this pandemic, planning one month ahead can be nerve-wracking, and the uncertainty of looking ahead half a year to the summer seems even more bizarre. We want to be as transparent as possible about all the health and safety protocols built into our programs so that our camper families can make the best decision for their situation. Please click the button below to find out what we’re doing to keep campers and staff safe, and the ways summer camp might look different than it has in the past. We also encourage you to reach out to us if you have questions about any aspect of our programs. From COVID to campfires, we’d love to talk through it with you.
We cannot wait to welcome campers back home this summer as we enter our 51st year of ministry!
