Dear Campers, Staff Members and Families of LPC,
The association of Luethi-Peterson Camps met this past weekend to discuss potential plans for this summer. Unfortunately, we decided not to host summer camps for 2021. Like last year, there is still much uncertainty as the COVID-19 pandemic still is affecting many nations around the world. This includes rising numbers of cases and changing quarantine requirements for entering and leaving specific countries. The situation is still fluid, and new restrictions can be imposed at short notice. This has been a very difficult decision-making process for the organization over the past few months. We had hoped for a return to normal this spring. However, we do not feel we have a clear picture of what this summer would look like and felt that we could not ensure a safe experience for campers, staffers and directors alike.
As mentioned earlier, interest from the community has been inspiring and informative during this process. While we may not be able to offer our normal summer camp programming, we are currently working to keep the LPC spirit alive for this summer and into this fall. This includes:
This will include hopefully another digital Camp Birthday celebration, a Silent Auction and other small events throughout the summer and the fall.
-Summits, Trainings and Discussion Groups
This will include discussions with various support groups in the LPC community as well as discussion and training with staff members
-Gatherings and Work Weekends
This would include putting together weekends for families in localized areas and potential work weekends to fix up our sites.
If you would like to receive email updates on these specific events and other information going forward, please fill in the form below to join our mailing list.
If you filled in our previous form from the past few months, you will continue to receive emails from us. You can email firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to opt out from these emails.
That all said, we hope to get a jump on planning for our 2022 camps. While again we cannot guarantee if we will be able to offer camps in 2022, we are hoping to start to look into options and policies for next summer earlier in the fall. Signing up for the above mailing list will ensure you will receive information from us concerning 2022.
I hope wherever you are, you are well, staying safe and have been able to enjoy the Spring. Again, we hope to stay in touch with you all during this difficult time. Thank you for your patience and support over this year.
On behalf of Luethi-Peterson Camps Inc.
