With sincere apologies, due to an up-tick in Covid cases in Mississippi, we will not be hosting camp in the year 2021!
"I am so excited for the opportunity to return to French Camp and to see all of our campers from years past. Below you will find the links for Camper and Counselor Registration. Please distribute these out to your congregations, parents, and friends! This year we will be studying the parables of Jesus, with an emphasis on The Kingdom of God and how we should live as members of that kingdom.
Obviously, camp will look a little different this year due to the ongoing pandemic. I know that parents and campers will have a lot of questions leading up to camp. First, let me assure you that camper safety is a priority for all of us. We plan to take every step necessary to make camp as safe and fun as possible. My goal is to distribute as much information as I can in the next few weeks. CRS has graciously volunteered to help make videos/flyers that will explain a lot of the steps being taken to address COVID concerns. Here are just a few points that I will expound upon in later emails/updates:
1. Unless the situation improves beforehand, there WILL be COVID protocols in place. CRS is regulated by state/national rules and they will have to comply with whatever guidelines they are given. With that said, right now they plan to have tighter, smaller groups, many indoor activities will be moved outside, "neck gators" will be provided to all campers, and there will be a health screening before camp begins with the nurse on site (temp. checks, questions, etc).
2. We plan to make changes to our drop off procedures to prevent the confusion from past years and to also limit contact among campers of various ages. More information will be coming on this.
3. Please note on the registration the "tiered" sign up dates. Due to all of the COVID procedures, we have cut the registration date off a little earlier this year. This will help us and CRS make adequate preparations before camp begins.
4. Again, I hope to address as many of your questions as I can in the coming weeks but I know it will be impossible to answer them all. I want to encourage you, therefore, to contact me with any questions or concerns you might have about camp. I have included my email and cell phone and I will be glad to talk with you at any time.
We are so thankful and excited for the opportunity to have MVP Camp back and we hope you and your campers are excited as well! I look forward to working alongside you as we teach our children the truth of who God is and what He has done for us through Jesus Christ our Lord!
