Summer Blast 2020 UPDATE

It is with heartfelt regret and extraordinary disappointment that we announce that, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are rescheduling our 2020 Summer Blast Creative Arts, Sports and Enrichment Experience until the Summer of 2021.

The sadness and sense of loss we feel we know is shared by many. The safety, health and welfare of each and every camper, camp counselor, volunteer and family member is of critical importance to us.

Summer Blast is an experience like no other. A family of 600 campers and camp counselors that come together to celebrate Life and Jesus' Gifts to each of us. Our camp, the size of an elementary school, would be hard-pressed to function safely and with the utmost care in current guidelines and conditions.

Every camper's registration will remain intact.

All camper registration fees will be refunded promptly -- we have already started the process.

All camp counselor positions remain in place.

The efforts made by campers and camp counselors in securing spots and positions are of great value to us and we honor them.

We ask that all camp counselors contact us in January of 2021 to confirm their intention to return.

We will contact all campers in February of 2021 to inquire as to whether they would like to reinstate their registration at that time.

Registration for Summer Blast 2021 will open on March 1, 2021.

Thank you for being a part of the Summer Blast family and for understanding that this was an incredibly difficult decision for us to make. We greatly look forward to next year's Summer Blast 2021 Experience and hope to share it with each and every one of you! You remain in our prayers always!
