Special Statement About 2020 Camp Emmanuel
The COVID-19 Pandemic is on all our minds.
The leaders of YCL Camp are, at the time of this writing (May 28) scheduling camps for after July 4th. However, they may determine it is in the best interest of campers and volunteers to cancel camp. Secondly, the State of Indiana is scheduled to enter Stage 5 of the Governor's plan to re-open Indiana on July 4th. This plan, however, is subject to change based upon trends. Stage 5 allows overnight camps.
If we do have camp this year, we will ask anyone who feels ill or who has been around someone who tested positive for COVID refrain from camp. We would take temperatures of all campers and volunteers each day. We would go over other precautions during camp.
So, at least for now, we are planning as though we are going to have camp. Please make sure each child or teen understands the tentative nature of camp this year.
As always, parents need to determine risk factors and are the best judges as to whether their child should or should not attend camp.
