2020 Camp Announcement (Cont.)

It is with great regret that we have to cancel our 2020 youth camp season. This has been a much debated, and as informed as it can be, decision. We have weighed the risks and rewards, and we struggle to think about a summer without Camp. However, we cannot begin to imagine an overnight summer camp without high fives and bunking with friends, or making campers wear face masks in summer heat. Our number one priority is the safety of our campers, their families, and our staff. As of now, youth summer camp is cancelled for 2020, but rentals and future events will be addressed on a month by month basis. Please know that you are VERY important to us. We hope you can understand our decision. Please don't hesitate to contact us with questions.  (Email:


Due to COVID-19, the Board of Directors decided to issue refunds for events that we cancel. We are not able to refund the PayPal processing fee. If you paid with a check, the entire payment is reimbursable. You have a few options. The first, is you can consider moving your rental to a different day, or camp registration to next year. You could get the funding reimbursed. Or, you could consider donating it to Camp. Without income, we need alternative funds for utilities, the renovations in progress, and upgrading camp to fit the requests from families in the survey conducted last year.


We had a lot of plans, and a lot of needs this year! COVID-19 has affected those plans. Please consider donating to Camp Whitley.  We have 0 families that registered their Kroger account with us this last quarter. Kroger Community Rewards gives us a small donation each time you shop at Kroger! You must be registered online to connect with Camp Whitley.

You can find links to sign up for Kroger and Amazon Smiles on the website.
