This has been a difficult year for all of us.
Staying close to home, remaining socially isolated, missing out on extracurricular activities, relating to teachers and friends from a distance… these things are hard for everyone. And, even though children and youth are unbelievably resilient, 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. We are overjoyed and 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, 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 2021, and that’s okay. 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.
It was heartbreaking for us not to offer summer camp in 2020, but we cannot wait to welcome you back home this summer as we celebrate 50 years of ministry!
