Hello, Camp Hunt friends! We hope you and yours are well and that the school year is going alright for you, whether virtually or in person. This has been a crazy year, hasn't it? This was the first time in 73 years Camp Hunt did not operate in the summer since we first opened in 1947. We missed seeing you so much.
Amid our discouragement, though, our year was brightened by the love and support we've received from you, our extended Camp Hunt family. Thank you to all of you who contributed financially, wrote notes of encouragement, volunteered to help with our Camp-in-a-Bag program, and who found ways to engage with each other online. It was great to hear your memories and pictures as well as your news, even in our social distancing.
While COVID-19 continues to bring a lot of uncertainty into our lives, as infection rates and guidance from health officials change, we are hoping and prayerfully planning to operate Camp Hunt in the summer of 2021:
Ages 8-10, July 11-17
Ages 10-13, July 18-24
Ages 13-18, July 25-31.
We find encouragement from the ways some camps in other states were allowed to operate, with safety restrictions, and did so successfully in 2020. We are watching and will be following local, state, and national health guidance to make a health and safety plan to keep Camp Hunt's campers and staff as safe as possible, and we will be defining policies considering a range of factors from testing and physical distance to transportation and disinfection procedures.
We will continue to update this page and notify our Camp Hunt community as we have more specific information in the coming months. In the meantime, although we may not have the answer to every question, please contact us through our Facebook page, Camp Hunt Inc. We are happy to talk with you.
We are looking forward to seeing all the smiling faces we missed this year. Being back together on the camp grounds, at the Flagpole, at the campfire and under the stars will be sweeter than ever!
Please pray with us for Camp Hunt's continued success. If you can, please support our program by contributing financially and by planning to send your kids to camp this summer. Let's work together to help Camp Hunt thrive as a place where friendships begin!
