Will we be offering overnight kids and youth camps this summer?
The Provincial Health Officer has lifted the order restricting overnight camps.
So what does that mean for Camp Luther? While this is an important next step for the return to ‘normal’, we wanted to inform our camp families that we will be continuing with our current plans for Summer 2021. An incredible amount of planning and logistics have gone into our current plan, and we are confident in moving forward with Day Camps and Family Camp.
6 weeks of DAY CAMPS and 1 session of FAMILY CAMP.
What are Day Camps going to be like? Will they be similar to Overnight Camps?
We are planning for Day Camps to be very similar to our camp experience! This means that every day, your camper will get to experience building relationships with fellow campers and staff, engaging activities, goofy skits and songs, bible study, craft making, playing at the waterfront, eating lunch and afternoon treats at canteen, a camp t-shirt, and so much more!
Drop off will be each day from 8:30-9:00, and pick up will be from 4:30-5:00 at designated registration zones. Our camp cohort will be divided into 3 smaller groups, each with their own Senior and Junior leaders, so that we can do our best to maintain great relationships, while also keeping campers and staff, and families safe.
What should my camper bring?
We advise parents/guardians to pack a backpack every day for their camper that should include an extra pair of shoes/sandals for the waterfront, a swimsuit, towel, sunscreen, hat, sunglasses, weather appropriate clothing, and a mask.
Use as many labels as you can to avoid mix ups of camper’s belongings!
Do I need to pack food for my camper?
While your camper is here, we’ve got food covered! We will be providing LUNCH for campers,
as well as a canteen snack in the afternoon (but campers need to eat breakfast and dinner at home)!
What are your safety measures? Does my camper need to wear a mask?
At Camp Luther, we highly value safety. We have added extra safety measures to our programming this year in accordance with our BC Camp Association standards, as well as our work sector expectations as given by the Provincial Health Authority. We have limited our registration numbers, have adjusted to do as much programming outdoors and with as much distancing as necessary, and will have appropriate cleaning and sanitizing procedures.
According to Public Health orders, campers in grade 4 (turning 9 by December 31st, 2021) are required to wear masks for indoor settings (washrooms, dining hall, chapel etc). Campers that are younger than this age are strongly encouraged to wear masks in such settings as well.
What if I have to cancel my camper’s registration?
If registrations must be cancelled due to COVID related health issues, refunds will be made possible.
What about Family Camp?
We are offering 1 session of Family Camp this summer! We hope that this will be a wonderful time of rest, relaxation, and fun for the whole family, as our staff have got meals covered, and have plenty of fun programming available for your family!
