The team at Walnut Ridge is praying that you and your family members are staying healthy during the current COVID-19 pandemic. We are grateful for the assurance and comfort we find in our faithful and loving God. As we look ahead at our camp calendar, we are daily monitoring the developing situation with COVID-19 and taking preventive measures. We are praying, preparing and moving forward with our 2020 camp season.
While there is no known direct contact with the virus at our camp, we are abiding by the County Health Department’s direction regarding the most current counsel and advice. In support of state-wide and national initiatives to slow the spread of the virus, below is Walnut Ridge’s response for both prevention and intervention:
Due to the government closure of schools, requirement of social distancing, etc.,reservations and tours are canceled until May 1. We will continue to work remotely via email and phone. Our decisions will be based on honoring government regulations, as well as our desire to do as much as we can to help “flatten the curve” and slow the spread of COVID-19. In the hopes that summer camps can still happen, we are still taking summer (and beyond) reservations.
We will publish updated information as we have more clarity on the impact in our region. We will not panic, but we will do our best to be prepared. As we look forward and continue planning, we want you to know that the health and safety of our guests and staff is of paramount importance to us here at Walnut Ridge. Even though we cannot see you in person, we will continue to serve you as best we can.
If your group is planning a retreat or event, please contact us. We will be happy to work with you to help you and your group navigate your specific questions, timeline, and concerns. Groups wanting to reschedule because of coronavirus concerns may do so, without a penalty. We will be happy to rollover their deposit to a future/rescheduled retreat, even if it’s not until next year. We will work with you to accommodate you as availability allows. We are still excitedly preparing for 2020 summer camp groups!!
Please email us with any questions or concerns and keep checking here for updates.
