Summer Program Cancellation
Greetings Camp Pendalouan Families,
Thank you for patiently staying with us on our journey into the unknown over the last several weeks and months. We hope that this message finds you and your family in continued good health and know that the Camp Pendalouan family is thinking of those in our community who are struggling through the wide-ranging challenges that have arisen as a result of the COVID-19 Pandemic.
Together, we hoped for promising news about the spread of illness, guidance on how to safely gather in large groups and various other indicators that our lives would regain certainty and routine on our path to a new normal. This new normal, we all hoped, would include Camp Pendalouan for Summer 2020. However, based on the evolving information available to us from health and camp experts, we now know that any programs we run would be vastly different from what we have done in the past and what our campers and parents expected.
Therefore, we have made the heartbreaking decision to extend our cancelation of Sessions 1 and 2 to include the remainder of Summer 2020 Programing, which includes all overnight camp, all day camp, and all family camps.
We ask that you take time to consider a donation to Camp Pendalouan.
Every bit makes a difference, whether it is $5, $50 or more. By supporting us now, you are investing in our community for the future. Camp Pendalouan has more to give in the years to come.
