Announcement regarding Heartland Camps 2020

As the Early-Bird deadline fast approaches for Heartland Camps 2020, many of you have asked or have wanted to ask what our plans are. Let me just say that we do not take this decision lightly at all and have spent many hours in prayer seeking wisdom and direction. We also have been watching the local, state, and national mandates in response to COVID-19 as we prepare to make this decision.

The “Governor’s Bounce Back Advisory Group” released the “Open Up and Recover Safely” Plan (OURS) on April 22, 2020. This plan is a three-phase approach and has instructions for places of worship at each phase. The 3rd Phase has a target date of implementation set for June 1st. This, of course, would only be met if “hospitalizations and incidents are at a manageable level” through each of the first 2 phases. Phase 3 addresses camps specifically and states “Summer camps (church and school) can open.” We realize that just because something is allowed doesn’t guarantee that it is the best option; however, at this point we do feel that proceeding with camps is the best option for the Heartland. That being said, we will watch each phase and see how the numbers look as the safety of our campers and staff are of utmost importance to us.

We ask that you still register your students as early as possible to help us with making sure we have the proper amount of staff, food, t-shirts etc. We are extending the Early-Bird Deadline to May 27th, and the $50.00 deposit will be refunded if we have to cancel or if we make any changes to camps that would keep your camper from coming. We ask for your continued prayers as we navigate these decisions in unprecedented times! We love and appreciate each of you and are praying for you!

God Bless,
Hallie Brown
