COVID-19 Statement & Updates

COVID-19 Statement & Updates 

Updated – March 18th, 2020

*We will continue to update this statement/page in the weeks to come*

First, we love you all and are praying for safety and discernment as we navigate the waters of what is going on in our world with the COVID-19 outbreak and the national and local responses to it. We are certainly concerned for our community and are paying close attention to authorities and experts. We are also trying to remain flexible as we make decisions that impact our operations in this very fluid situation. Please note the following:
  • We are a people of prayer and peace because of Jesus
  • We have put precautions in place to make sure our staff remains healthy, including preparing for our employees to work from home if conditions require it
  • Planning continues for summer camp; however, we realize that things could look different and are considering various scenarios
  • We have postponed/canceled several events (detailed below), and we will continue to update this page with the latest information
  • At this time, many of our spring retreat groups are being postponed due to mandated restrictions of large group gatherings; once those have been lifted we are looking forward to hosting groups again and welcoming guests at our retreat center!
  • Preparing for the worst, expecting the best of what God, and He alone, has in store!

Final Thoughts 

These decisions have not been made in fear but rather in concern and care for our Camp Oak Hill & Retreat Center participants, guests and families. In times like these we turn to each other and to scripture for comfort and steadiness. Please reach out to us to let us know how we can support each other! 

Let all that I am wait quietly before God,
    for my hope is in him.

He alone is my rock and my salvation,
    my fortress where I will not be shaken.

 My victory and honor come from God alone.
    He is my refuge, a rock where no enemy can reach me.

O my people, trust in him at all times.
    Pour out your heart to him,
    for God is our refuge

Psalm 62:5-8
