• Summer Camp 2016 at Camp Yamhill. Camps for kids from Elementary School, Middle School, Junior High, and High School

WELCOME TO CAMP YAMHILL

Easter Egg Hunt cancelled – Due to the coronavirus outbreak, the Camp Yamhill Easter Egg Hunt has been cancelled.

To our supporters and parents,

The recent outbreak of the coronavirus, COVID-19 has caused confusion and tumult in our society and in the world.

Christians are not exempt from the toll this has taken on our society. Our ability to come together as the body of Christ has been limited. The current pain and suffering, both physical and emotional, will also be experienced by us as we all learn to deal with this difficult situation. Even though, as Christians, we should not give in to fear, we should do all that we can do to protect our families, our neighbors and ourselves.

Camp Yamhill is a place where the love of Jesus can be experienced, especially by the Christians of this area. Our summer camps give our young people an opportunity to enjoy the love of God in the beauty of His creation.

As we consider how to respond to the crisis facing our society, we want to do everything possible ensure the safety of our young people. The health and well-being of our campers is of the greatest importance to us.

At this time, Camp Yamhill will continue to plan to hold summer camp sessions as scheduled. However, this situation is very fluid. We cannot know whether we will continue to be under the same governmental restrictions on public meetings that are currently in place, limiting all gatherings. Camp Yamhill will follow all restrictions and guidelines issued by the state and federal government. Since these guidelines are subject to revision on a regular basis, Camp Yamhill will continue to monitor these restrictions and keep in contact with you to let you know if plans for our camps change.

The early registration deadline for our summer camps will be extended from May 1st to June 1st.

It is our hope and prayer that you and your families will be safe and healthy. We also pray that this worldwide outbreak of the coronavirus, and the associated fear, panic and suffering will soon be brought to an end.

Please fell free to contact the Camp office if you have questions about Camp Yamhill’s response to the coronavirus. Email: manager@campyamhill.org or call, 503.662.3710.
