formerly Wellman Lake Bible Camp

After much deliberation the Board Members of Waters Edge Bible Camp have made the decision to cancel the 2020 Camp Season. This includes all scheduled camps as well as rental groups.

To our supporters,

We at Waters Edge Bible Camp hope you are doing well and finding ways to enjoy the downtime brought to us by COVID-19. Along with many other summer camps throughout the country, we are entering into the time of year where we should be cleaning camps, acquiring staff and receiving registrations. In March, the WEBC Board made the decision to put these activities on hold until further information and a better timeline of effect was established. Now into April, we know the restrictions will remain in place until the end of the month, with a high likelihood of continuing into May and the summer months.

After much deliberation the Board Members of Waters Edge Bible Camp have made the decision to cancel the 2020 Camp Season. This includes all scheduled camps as well as rental groups.

This is not a decision we were expecting to make this year and certainly do not do so lightly, recognizing the many children, families and staff members who look forward to their time at the Camp each year. We hold out hope that the restrictions put in place by the government at this time will indeed ‘flatten the curve’ of COVID-19 and be lifted before the regular start of our season in June; however we realize that the ease and speed at which this virus can be spread puts us at a high risk of outbreaks through the following months. This is particularly true when people again begin to gather in large groups.

The nature of camp is such that our staff and campers live and play in constant close proximity, well within the 6 foot/2-meter recommended distance. Though Camp is a place where we put focus on the spiritual health of our campers and staff, we endeavour to keep them all physically healthy as well. As it says in Ecclesiastes 3, “…there is a time to embrace and a time to refrain from embracing…”.

So, this year, we will take a break. We will find other ways to connect with our campers and supporters. Once restrictions are lifted we will use the time and any willing hands to complete projects up at the camp as we prepare for 2021. We ask that you would share with us your ideas and wishes for the future of the camp, and your prayers. Prayers for the Camp going forward and for healing and peace for all those who have and will be affected by this virus.

 

God Bless.
