2020 Summer Camp
As many of you have heard, we have canceled all camps at Camp Caroline this summer due to the COVID-19 virus. While this is one of the hardest decisions we have ever had to make, we know it is the best one to keep everyone as safe as possible.
You can read more about the decision in this letter from our Regional Minister, Bishop Valerie Melvin. You can also check out this video from Casey and me as we talk about the decision and what summer camp might look like virtually. Most importantly, we want everyone to know that we, at Camp Caroline and the Christian Church in NC, are praying for all of you, your families, and the campers. We miss you, and we are working hard to provide engaging, fun activities over the summer that everyone can participate in!
Also, there is no easy way to say this, but the canceling of camp will impact the financial situation at Camp Caroline greatly, and we also know that COVID-19 has created many tough financial situations for our campers and their families. Below I have outlined all of the possible options for all campers.
So here's where we stand:
1) If you have already registered, you have some options:
- Option 1: Full refunds are available. Please email Lisa Tedder (Lisa@ncdisciples.org) to request a refund. We will provide full refunds to anyone who has already paid. Please allow some time for processing.
- Option 2: If you are able and willing, you may convert your registration fee to a donation. If you wish to do this, please let Lisa Tedder (Lisa@ncdisciples.org) know via email as well.
- Option 3: If you want to donate part of your registration fee, please email Lisa Tedder (Lisa@ncdisciples.org) to request a full refund and then make a donation here: https://ncdisciples.org/
donate. We are unable to process partial refunds at this time.
2) If you have not registered, you have some options:
- Option 1: If you are able and willing, please consider registering for summer camp like normal. Your registration fee will become a donation to help Camp Caroline during this time. You can register here: https://ncdisciples.org/
- Option 2: If you are unable to register at this time, you can make a donation here: https://ncdisciples.org/
- Option 3: Please reach out to your churches to see if they are able to help Camp Caroline in any capacity, especially if your church typically pays for your registration. Instead of registering youth for camp, ask if your church would consider making a donation instead.
- Option 4 (and strongly requested haha): Please pray for Camp Caroline, its staff, its campers, and its volunteers! I grew up going to summer camp, and I can't imagine missing a summer camp as a child (or even now). Your prayers are so appreciated and coveted!
3) And just because camp is canceled, we are still working hard to provide you with some spiritual and fun engagement throughout the summer. Make sure you are checking your emails often, following us on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/
