A few weeks ago, we wrote to express our desire to have camp this summer. Although that desire has not changed, California is still navigating the COVID-19 pandemic. It does not look like the state will approve overnight camping before July 26, when we are scheduled to begin our week of camp. So, it is with heavy hearts that we must let you know that will not have Lassen Pines Youth & Family Camp this summer.
For over four decades, believers have been able to serve families and young people through the ministry at Lassen Pines. So, making the decision to cancel this year was not easy. We love being able to gather, enjoy activities, sing and learn from the Bible together at camp- and would love to do these things again. Yet, because of the restrictions in place in California due to COVID-19, our willingness to “submit to the governing authorities” (Romans 13:1), and the desire to keep our campers safe, we do not believe it would be wise to have camp.
While the future is uncertain, we are hoping to be able to pick up next year where we are leaving off this year. Please join us in praying for the future of Christian camp ministries (especially Lassen Pines Youth & Family Camp 2021), the people who manage the Lassen Pines Christian Conference Grounds, our nation (especially the areas heavily impacted by COVID-19), and our nation’s leaders.
A few have asked if we will be running an online camp program in place of our regular camp. At this point, we do not have plans to do an online program. If anything changes in this area, we will let you know.
At Lassen, we have inspirational daily messages about the Bible, practical seminars, great music, fun athletic activities (on the field and in the lake), delicious food, a talent show, and awesome opportunities for building life-long friendships!
