 COVID-19 
Summer 2020 Information
Over the last couple of months, we have been praying and discussing the impact of COVID-19. We have been concerned for all of you, your families, our family, and the Woods. But we are focused on having faith and know that God is good all the time!
Here at Westminster Woods, camper and staff safety is of the utmost importance. We are continuing to monitor the news and reports about Covid-19 and will be acting in accordance with our federal, state, and local governments. Please remember that God is in control of this situation, and he has given us medical science and wisdom to make these decisions. We will be keeping everyone updated as we gather more information.
Have any of the Woods program in June been canceled? 

The camp board met last night and with very heavy hearts made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 Woods Summer Camp Program in June. They did not make this decision lightly. This decision was made with the health and safety of the campers and staff as their deciding factor. We know that camp by nature is not an environment where social distancing can properly take place. Our first concern is and will always be the camper's safety. This has been such a difficult decision to make, and our hearts have been breaking at even the thought of not having the Woods program. Our hearts have been breaking for the staff, the campers, and especially the seniors. Please know how exceedingly difficult of a decision this has been for the board. We totally support and share their dedication to the safety and well-being of the campers, staff, and guests of Westminster Woods.

Have any of the camps in July or August been canceled?
Westminster Woods Board also closed the camp for July and August.

As groups have discerned what is best for each of them, they have canceled their September Retreats, and so Westminster Woods is closed in September also. 
 

Policy and What are my options in regard to my refund?

  1. You can receive a full refund (minus the PayPal fee if you paid online).
  2. You can choose to donate a portion of your whole camp fee to Friends of Westminster Woods. This program will help to sustain Westminster Woods through this time. You will receive an email asking you which option you would like to choose.
  3. You can choose to transfer the amount you paid to your amount due for The Woods June summer camp 2021.

 
Westminster Woods is dedicated to the Glory of God at this time as we always are. We will continue to seek wisdom from Him and make our decisions based on what we believe will honor God, keep your family safe, and continue the camp's mission.
