Impact YOuth Camp
With great sorrow, we have decided to cancel Impact 2020. The official statement from the Directors:
“In one of the most difficult decisions we've ever made, the Directors of Impact Youth Camp regret to announce we have decided unanimously to cancel Impact 2020. We know that this will be a huge disappointment to many and we did not take the decision lightly. For the last few weeks we've examined, researched and monitored state and CDC guidelines and determined that even if we attempted to run camp, it wouldn't look or feel like Impact. Moreover, the risk of an outbreak at camp and our ability to contain it and protect our staff and campers exceeded our medical capacity. "A sensible person sees danger ahead and takes cover, but the naive ignore it and suffer the consequences" Proverbs 22:3. Two things are absolutely paramount to Impact Youth Camp: First, that the Gospel would be central to everything we do at camp. Second, that our staff and campers are safe. Given the current situation, we could not reasonably ensure the safety of our staff, campers and their loved ones after they returned home. We ask you to join us in prayer and ask God that in His mercy would allow us to return in 2021. Finally, we would like to say to the Seniors how much our hearts ache for you. You've had to give up so much this year, and this is just one more disappointment. However, in the midst of trial and disappointment remember that God is sovereign and He loves you. We offer Lamentations 3:22 "Though he brings grief, he also shows compassion because of the greatness of his unfailing love."
Impact Youth Camp is one week when teens from around the country gather together to be IMPACTED by God's Word, all while having the time of their lives!
