Overnight Camps Not Permitted in Illinois
Sadly, we will not be able to host camps for Chicago teens this summer. We were thinking and hoping that entering phase 4 would allow us to meet at Rock River Christian Camp, but the State of Illinois will not allow overnight camps until we reach phase 5. In response to this, we are moving in a different direction with regard to our overnight camp and the related virtual camp option. If you registered for Chicago’s Reconciled camp (overnight or virtual) you will receive a full refund soon.
Virtual Camp Option for Ages 11-18
Since we will be relying on the virtual camp experience, we have decided with the support of the Youth and Family staff, the elders, and AT to join the International Swamp Summer Camp!
This International Swamp Summer Camp is the ‘mac-daddy’ of virtual camps. The camp has already been in full swing for a couple weeks and the kids going through it love it! The Midwest teens will join kids and teens from all over the country and world. Already kids from China, Africa, Taiwan, the Caribbean, Brazil, and many from the states are registered for this camp that begins July 27.
