Summer Camp Cancellation:
On May 15th, The State of Oregon issued the Guidance for School-aged Summertime Day Camps. The guidance states that “Overnight camps are not permitted to operate.”
Because of these rules, the Camp Yamhill Board of Directors made the decision on May 19th, not to operate our summer sponsored camps in 2020. The camps affected are Catalyst, 1st & 2nd Grade, 3rd & 4th Grade, 5th & 6th Grade, 7th & 8th Grade, Senior Teen and Father/Child. It is possible that the situation may change later in the year, so a decision on any other camps will come at a later time.
This was a very difficult decision. Our primary concern is the health and safety of our campers and their families. All registration fees that have been paid will be refunded.
Please contact the camp office with any questions. Email: firstname.lastname@example.org or call, 503.662.3710.
Coronavirus Donation Campaign
As the coronavirus continues to bring uncertainty to our lives, it also impacts Camp Yamhill in negative ways. Our friends and supporters have always been a vital part of the ministry of Camp.
One way that our supporters can help Camp is by taking advantage of a provision of the CARES act recently passed by congress and signed by the president. This provision states that beginning in 2020, non-itemizers can claim up to $300 in an above-the-line income tax deduction for monetary donations to charities. For those who take the standard deduction on 2020 returns filed in 2021, they can give up to $300 and claim a $300 tax break in addition to the standard deduction.
Donations can be made by sending a check to Camp Yamhill or through this web page. You can give a one time donation or enter into a continuing commitment by giving a $25 monthly donation.
Camp Yamhill would encourage you to consider entering into a partnership with Camp. Your donation will help Camp continue our programs in service to our churches, families and friends.
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.
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: email@example.com or call, 503.662.3710.
