Lakeview Methodist Conference Center Cancels Summer Camp 2020
A message from Lakeview Methodist Conference Center Regarding Summer Camp 2020
Friends of Lakeview,
We continue to lift you all in prayer during this difficult time. In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have prayerfully considered the status of Summer Camp 2020. Through conversations with our staff, volunteer leaders, clergy and Cabinet members from the Texas Annual Conference, and Board of Directors, we have come to the conclusion that we must cancel Summer Camp 2020. Due to restrictions and health concerns for our campers, and the potential long-term financial impact on Lakeview, this decision was made to guarantee we will be able to continue our ministry in the future.
This is not a decision we wanted to make. We are passionate about summer camp and the life-changing experiences that take place here at Lakeview. Please know that we examined every possible scenario and our staff is still committed to making your next experience at Lakeview the best it can be.
Throughout this process, our staff has also developed plans for new ministries and programs that you will be able to participate in. While we are saddened by this cancelation, we are encouraged by the new opportunities that we will offer this fall, winter and spring. As we are able, we will be open for retreats and other groups to continue coming to Lakeview.
Parents who have paid a camper fee will soon be contacted by our Registrar. You will have the choice of a full refund, applying the fee to Summer Camp 2021, or leaving it as a tax deductible donation to help Lakeview.
If you have questions or are in need of assistance regarding camp-related matters, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. Stay connected with Lakeview on social media (@iheartlakeview) and our website (www.lakeviewmcc.org) for more information on upcoming opportunities.
Your continued support is appreciated and crucial to Lakeview now more than ever as we continue to impact lives for Jesus Christ and the transformation of our world. We look forward to seeing you at Lakeview soon.
Yours in Christ,
