While it saddens all members of the Board of Directors to share, it has been decided that we will once again not be running our regularly scheduled children’s camps during the summer of 2021. After almost a year of hoping, following precautions, and monitoring the local COVID-19 situation, we have determined that our current situation and 2021 projections are not conducive to the environment necessary to plan and run our camps this July. Similarly, our 75th Anniversary celebrations originally scheduled for August 2020 have been postponed until July 29th – Aug 1st, 2022 and we are very much looking forward to the expectation that we will be able to safely gather at this time. Please check our website, Facebook, Instagram, or email us at email@example.com to sign up to receive our new tri-annual newsletter for updates.
As always, the health and safety of our campers and staff is our top priority. Whether battling physical, mental, or emotional strain during this uncertain time, we can take comfort that the Lord loves and restores: “Nevertheless, I will bring health and healing to it; I will heal my people and will let them enjoy abundant peace and security” (Jeremiah 33:6).
Camp Gitchigomee’s Rental Coordinator will continue to follow all direction provided by our local Health Authority as changes may occur; at this point, we are offering rental groups our non-power/water option throughout the summer of 2021. For more information on rental rates or to contact our rental coordinator, please see our website here.
The Board would also like to announce to its membership that the 2020 Annual General Meeting will be held on March 23rd, 2021 at 7:00pm via Zoom. We welcome all members and camp supporters to attend. Links and directions to attend will be sent with the agenda and our AGM reports closer to the date. If you have not been receiving email correspondence from us regarding our monthly meetings and would like to be added to our mailing list, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org at your earliest convenience to let us know.
Lastly, we would like to extend our sincerest appreciation to all members, volunteers, and supporters for your ongoing dedication to the camp mission, even during our unanticipated prolonged off-season. This camp is only made possible through the generous donations of time, money, and prayer from our incredible camp community.
We hope that you remain safe and well, knowing that you are in our prayers,
Camp Gitchigomee Board of Directors
