What will Summer 2021 look like?
In 2021, campers will experience Summer Camp as small group cohorts, which means that each camp group will travel, eat, and play together for the week. All small groups will follow a basic schedule that emphasizes outdoor activities and faith development. Adventure Camps have some additional activities scheduled (such as rock climbing or horseback riding). Depending upon current restrictions and best practices this summer, we hope to gather all campers for a few safely distanced activities throughout the week.
How is Caroline Furnace being affected by COVID-19?
We'll get through this together! Thank you for any support you are able to provide during this time. Donate here.
To put it simply, donor support is carrying us through this pandemic and related shutdowns. Typical revenue from group rentals for 2020 was at nearly zero. 2021 deposits are helping but cannot sustain us on their own. Summer Camp deposits and registration payments have been delayed. We are operating on a reduced budget and have adjusted all variable expenses.
Are you still booking group retreats?
YES, we are still hosting retreats and we have a NEW! book now, pay later option for 2021 retreat groups! The Farmhouse and Loft are available year-round to families and small groups. The Cabin Village is available for groups of up to 80 people who would like to retreat in sub-groups, cohorts, or pods. Let us help you reinvent your retreat! We can help design a retreat plan that works for you. Ask us about transportation logistics, health screening and check-in procedures, small group cohorts and programs, hybrid options and Wi-Fi zones, and more!
