PARK RIVER BIBLE CAMP RESPONDS TO COVID-19
We understand that many have growing concerns about what’s happening globally with regard to everyone’s safety in the face of COVID-19. For now, we are continuing with all Summer Programs but are actively monitoring the situation, and will adjust if necessary. We recognize that individuals must make decisions based on their personal situation and comfort.
We think there is still time for a wait-and-see approach for the summer programs. In the event that we will need to cancel one or more programs or any participant must cancel because of COVID-19, families may choose a refund of tuition, a credit to be applied for a later time or make a donation.
Park River Bible Camp’s year-round staff have been working to figure all this out to the best of our ability.
Camping Ministry all together impacts so many people. It’s hard to think of the possibility that camp might not happen how it “usually” does.
I know that we are all in this together. So, our prayer is that you pray. Prayer for all camps, all summer staff, camp budgets, and for decision making from now until camp (is supposed to) begins.
We are asking all donors, member congregations, families, WELCA (and non-WELCA) members and all who support PRBC to remember us as we are making these BIG decisions.
Thank you for praying, guiding and walking with us during this difficult-decision making time.
God’s Blessings and safety as we all continue to practice social distancing.
In His Grace,
Throughout the month of April we are asking all our donors, supporters, families, and friends to help us SPRING INTO ACTION for the summer of 2020.
Each summer we have the honor of training, guiding, and shaping the growth of 25 summer staff at Park River Bible Camp. These young adults will strive to make an impact not only to every person who comes to camp, but also in the world in which they live. God has provided many of our summer 2020 staff. But as Summer grows closer, PRBC needs your help supporting them financially. It costs around $100,000 to provide a stipend to our summer staff. Each staff member makes around $50/ day, $300/week, or $3,750 for the whole summer. From May-August, every day of camp our PRBC Staff works crazy long hours going through staff training, leading Bible studies, cabin Devotionals, performing songs and skits, instructing crafts, and VBS. They will learn how to live and work with 25 other young adults, 25 other personalities. They are tasked with guiding each one of the campers that get to experience camp. They will help campers grow in their faith, and they may even have their personal faith grow this summer.
All in all they show God’s unconditional love to every camper, volunteer, church participant, parent, and pastor they meet. This is all done with your financial and spiritual help.
Our SPRING INTO ACTION campaign helps us continue to grow our ministry’s reach by giving us the security to know we can pay our summer staff. We would like to go ahead and thank you for supporting our 2020 Summer Staff.
