Welcome to Opportunity Camp 2020!
Opportunity Camp 2020
In light of the pandemic we all are experiencing, and the issues that it brings to our program’s operations, I am sad to share we will not be hosting camp this summer.
The safety and health of campers and staff is always the highest priority at Opportunity Camp. Our camp has a long history of planning for and managing health issues. With the potential spread of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic within the United States, we have been discussing how camp would look if the county, state, and federal government were to open up the shelter in place order and set guidelines and firm rules/recommendations for continued social distancing.
We are unsure if we can realistically and effectively prevent the spread of exposure if anyone did in fact have the virus at camp. When looking at the potential for our group gatherings in mass and close proximity required to effectively serve these children, we are heeding the advice of Governor Gavin Newsom who stated a timeline for such gatherings would be unlikely throughout this summer.
Please pray for the children we serve, for their situations and home life experiences, that God will protect them and that we can do a good job of fund raising to put forth a great camp next summer.
