Day Camp

Update – May 18th

It is with a sad and heavy heart the decision has been made to cancel Day Camp 2020 for safety.

This has been a very difficult decision for our Elder Board. Several things were the basis for this decision:

  • The health and safety of our campers and staff
  • Following the mandates of our governor

We are in Phase 3 of the governors 6 Phase plan. With 500 people on campus each day for camp, we are not able to legally meet until we reach Phase 6. It looks as though this will not be happening before June 15th.

If you have paid a camper registration fee you will be receiving a refund in the mail by next week.

Please be watching as we will share some fun virtual meetings and activities in several weeks. Be safe and have a great summer! We look forward to seeing you all next year at Day Camp 2021 – it’s only 392 days away!!!

Update – April 29th

Hope this finds you and your families healthy. Here is an update on Maranatha Day Camp 2020. Covid-19 has put everything on “hold” hasn’t it?!

The Elders and the Day Camp Committee at Maranatha make Day Camp a major matter of prayer. Our Governor has put our “stay at home” in effect until May 15th. With that in mind, on May 18th a decision will be made on whether we can safely hold Day Camp. Thank you for your patience as we all travel down unfamiliar territory waiting to have our lives back on track.

Please come along side us and pray.
