As you may have already heard, this morning Scioto Hills made the difficult decision to cancel all Youth Camps for the Summer of 2020. This means that in addition to the New Frontier and Alpha Camps being cancelled, our high school SEEKers program will also not be taking place this summer.
We know that this is disappointing news as camp is the highlight of the summer for so many of our students and youth SEEKers leaders.
While this summer will certainly look different, we know that our God has known what the summer of 2020 would be from the beginning, and we look forward to seeing how he plans to use all of this to deepen relationships and further his Kingdom.
While Scioto Hills is not running Youth Camps this summer, they are instead planning to offer five weeks of "Fresh Air-Fun Filled-Get Out of the House Family Camps."
You can read the full update from Scioto Hills and find more information on Family Camps HERE.
Each summer, many of our children attend Scioto Hills Christian Camp in Wheelersburg, Ohio.
