Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update
Family Camp 2020 Update
By now you have probably read or heard that on July 11, The Wilds made the difficult decision to cancel the remainder of our summer youth camps for 2020. While this has been disappointing for everyone, the health and safety of our campers, counselors, sponsors, staff, and their families has remained our priority.
What does this mean for Family Camp the week of August 17-22, 2020? Initially, we were hopeful that we would be able to continue with our plans to host families at The Wilds this summer, but as we continued pursuing this plan, we gradually concluded that it would be best for us to cancel Family Camp 2020 as well. This was a difficult decision, and we know it is disappointing to you and your family.
We know that this is “just one more thing” that has been cancelled during this year, and that is disappointing. We are saddened by this as well, as we were looking forward to a great week with you. We do feel that this is the best decision for The Wilds to make at this time, as we seek to protect the health and safety of your families and our staff. We are sorry that this has become necessary and look forward to a time soon when we can all enjoy camp together again!
The Wilds in North Carolina is Now Closed for Youth Summer 2020 Camps (7/11/20)
Given the continued spread of the COVID-19 coronavirus, with some positive post-camp tests of campers upon their return home, potential spread to staff, and at the recommendation of the local health officials, we have made the extremely difficult decision to cancel the youth camps offered at The Wilds for the remainder of the summer.
We know that this is disappointing news to many of you, as it is to us, but the health and safety of our campers, counselors, sponsors, staff, and their families is our priority.
We are sorry that this has become necessary and look forward to a time this fall when we can all enjoy camp together again.
Trust in Him at all times; ye people, pour out your heart before Him:
God is a refuge for us.
