Hello Campers and Parents
First off, let me say that I have really missed seeing those of you who attended our Taco Tuesdays each week. I had hoped that we would be able to do so many things before and through Camp WOW. Never would I have believed that we would be isolated for the past month, much less well into next month AND restrictions placed on our summer activities. Mrs. Rasmussen told me that she talked with most of you about how most would still send their kids to camp.
We recently had a meeting with the 14 parishes involved with the three Camp WOWs that take place each summer. Even though this would have been our 25th anniversary (and my 24th year attending Camp) we realized that the responsible thing to do would be to suspend camp for this year. Shown below is the official notification that we regret having to send out to Counselors, Campers, YMTs and parents. Please know we will be refunding and/or returning checks that we have received (as soon as we are able to get back to work in the office). During this time, please let us know if there is anything we can do to help with your teen. Please do not hesitate to email and then we can discuss by phone.
Mr. Zak & Mrs. Rasmussen
Dear Camp Wow Counselors, Campers, and Families,
We regret to inform you that Camp Wow 2020 has been cancelled. Due to the recent Corona-Virus Pandemic, and the various possibilities of change within these past and future months, it was a UNANIMOUS decision throughout the Parishes and Camps involved to cancel Camp Wow for THIS Summer. HOWEVER, we are happy to inform you that we still have the ability to run Camp Wow next Summer and will let you know how we will approach that, come fall.
Thank you for your time and patience these last months as we try to ensure the BEST possible response to the Pandemic and in keeping the safety and well being of everyone of utmost importance.
Please continue to pray for one another in our community and your leaders at this time making difficult decisions and trying to keep our safety in mind.
May God Bless you and your families during this time and always!
Remember to “Seek first the kingdom of God and HIS righteousness”, to “Cast your cares on the Lord for He cares for you”, and that “The JOY of the Lord is our Strength!”
God’s Blessings and Most Sincerely,
Camp Wow St. Patrick’s, Camp Wow Holy Cross, Camp Wow St. Thomas More, Camp Wow Our Lady of Victory,
Camp Wow St. John the Baptist, and the remaining Parishes and Camps involved in Camp Wow.
