Yes, we have seen the historical and recent anecdotal evidence that the coronavirus is seasonal, and we are hopeful to return to normal, free association in May. HOWEVER, we will follow the US Centers for Disease Control and Illinois DPH regulations--not anecdotes.
We are proceeding with the intent to operate a normal summer. The camps and dates are listed here. We will turn-on registration after reconfirming in our April 1 Executive Committee meeting.
Between the State "lockdown," and vacation schedules, we are not maintaining regular office hours. Please contact us via e-mail, firstname.lastname@example.org, or leave a phone message, 815-284-6979.
We are a part of a connectional ministry of churches known as the Northern Illinois Conference (NIC), of the United Methodist Church (UMC), comprised of 373 UMC churches throughout northern Illinois. Our sister camp, Reynoldswood, located on the Rock River in Dixon, IL--is open seasonally and, therefore, not currently affected.
