Dear Campers, Parents, Staff, and the RABC Community:
I am sad to announce that Rough Acres Bible Camp is cancelling all of our regular summer sessions this year, and starting to focus on Summer 2021.
This is a hard decision for the camp, for our staff, volunteers and for me and my family. And it’s an easy decision when it comes to protecting yours.
When families send their child to us at Rough Acres, they are trusting me and the leadership team to build a community that takes responsibility for everyone’s emotional and physical safety, through experiences that are just not possible with physical distancing.
No matter what changes in the next two months, this global pandemic has made it impossible for us to run our typical camp programs safely and appropriately this summer.
Campers: We will be a little lost without you! We miss you already, and we are sad we can’t be together, for now. But, we are looking forward to seeing you in 2021, and are counting down the days! We wrote you a letter, see the tab below.
Camp Parents: Thank you for your trust, and we are so disappointed that we can’t move forward with our typical summer. Please read the letter below.
Staff and Volunteers: You are the heartbeat of camp, and we miss you, and are sad for you, too. Please read more in your letter, below.
Friends, Family, and Peers in camp: Thank you for your understanding, support, and appreciation of what we do, how we do it, and why. If you are in a place where you are able and willing, we would greatly appreciate any monetary donations to help us get through this coming year, so we can be prepared and able to open for Summer 2021. Donations can be sent by mail or online.
If you want more details, have questions, or just need to talk through it, please email me, as always.
I hope you stay healthy and safe,
Robyn “Bob” Johnson
Rough Acres Bible Camp
P.S. If you’d like to send a message of support, we welcome them, thank you.
