Jesus’ power pulls us through! That’s our theme for this summer’s camp experience and it the perfect reminder for this most unusual year!
After much prayerful consideration, we have made the difficult decision to move all summer camps to a virtual platform for this year. Like so many things we are grieving in this season, we will miss daily in person interactions with your families. We are grateful, however, for the technology and creative minds of dedicated volunteers who are working hard to make this year’s camps unique and fun!
Summer Camp 2020 will be a “Choose Your Own Adventure” virtual experience held over 5 weeks from June 15 – July 16. The core experience will be the Vacation Bible School content you are accustomed to seeing every year in Week 1 of our summer camps. This year, however, we will spread that content over 5 weeks of camp with a “Grab & Go” bag of supplies with everything your child needs for two fun and action packed video conference calls per week with Holy Cross staff and key volunteers (lots of familiar faces!). These highly interactive experiences will include all the music, Bible adventures, games, gizmos and fun that you expect at VBS, just modified for a virtual environment. The curriculum will be geared towards elementary aged students (K-5th Grades) but preschool siblings are welcome to join in on calls with older kids at parents’ discretion.
Beyond VBS, we are continuing to put the final touches on other “add on” experiences to help you tailor a summer adventure that will best meet the needs of your child and family. We are still working through the details on some of these experiences. Please indicate on the registration form what options are of interest to you and we will be in contact shortly to share all the important details you will need.
If your family is planning to join us this summer, please let us know by registering (even if you had previously registered for our in person program). This will help us plan and order supplies to prepare for our time together. We will, of course, share details as they become available and feel free to reach out to us with any questions in the meantime. We will do our best to answer them.
Thank you for you patience and support in this very unique year! We remain as confident as ever that Jesus’ power is infinite and assured and that he continues to be at work in and through his word, his Spirit and his people!
