2020 summer camp update

Dear Parents, Campers, Pastors, and Church Leaders,

In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, uncertainty regarding health guidelines for Ohio residential camps, and in order to keep campers and families safe, it is with sad hearts that we have decided to cancel all youth summer programs for 2020. We waited as long as we possibly could, and we wish we could announce happier news to you today.

In place of youth camp, we have high hopes that we will be able to offer several weeks of Family Camp this summer. If you are registered or interested, we will be making another announcement next week regarding its status. Please continue to check your email, our website, and social media to see our summer plan.

Cancelling summer camp also comes with an incredible financial need. With the loss of income from spring, summer, and potentially our late summer and fall groups, we are expecting a huge shortfall this year.

If you have made a payment towards a summer camper, would you consider:

  • Donating the entirety of your summer camp payment.
  • Donating your deposit and receiving a refund for the remainder.
  • We understand that you too may have fallen on hard times, and we will gladly refund your full payment

Thank you all for your prayers and support through these difficult times, and even more difficult decisions. We hope that we see you here at the Ranch for an incredible summer in 2021.

The SVR Board of Trustees
