In the summer of 2020, our Young Life, WyldLife, Capernaum and Skatelife teams across the country blew us away with creative, fun and adventurous camping alternatives. Some were in urban settings, others were hiking or on camping trips and many were doing epic activities on land or water. We did our best to offer teens the “best week of their pandemic-summer.”
As COVID-19 continues to limit our ability to host and gather well, we’ve made the decision to approach Summer 2021 with a similar regional-based-strategy for “camping”. The anticipated restrictions around group size, travel, social distancing and our own standards of camping excellence will make the summer camping we are used to at RockRidge Canyon and Saranac Village extremely difficult. RockRidge Canyon will not be hosting traditional Young Life camp this summer; you’ll hear more about their alternative plans in the weeks to come.
We are confident that God will help us move on towards an exciting summer. Your local Young Life, WyldLife, Capernaum & Skatelife staff and leaders are already busy planning and dreaming for the next-best-thing for Summer 2021, so stick close to your local area for updates on what that may look like very soon. We can’t wait to return to camp again once it is safe and wise to do so!
