May 2nd, 2020
The board of directors has taken the following actions to comply with the state Governor's Coronavirus response plan:
We are canceling the Spring Retreat
We are modifying the Spring Work Party (see email)
We are canceling Family Day (scheduled for June 13th)
We are canceling all DBCC sponsored summer camps (1st-3rd, 4th-6th, YTS, JTS, and STS)
We pray that Delano will continue long into the future to provide a place for people to encounter the good news about Jesus the Christ. We are thankful that we have a God who cares for the sick and the vulnerable and we want to participate with him in that work at this time. Unfortunately, the best way to do that right now is to limit gatherings at our camp.
As the situation develops, there may be opportunities for people to gather at camp. We will continue to monitor the situation and keep everyone informed if we can start hosting large groups again. Thank you for your understanding during this time.
We have put together the following policies regarding Refunds, Cancelations, Rescheduling:
For anyone who has placed a deposit or paid in full, refunds are available by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. If possible, we recommend "rolling" your deposit or camp fee into next year's camp. There are two reasons we think you should do this.
Next year we are introducing a small price increase for our camps. Anyone who has already registered (or wishes to register for camp next year) will be able to pay this year's fee (instead of next year's increased fee). If your camper will be 'moving up' to the next camp, they need to pay the fee for the camp they are going to.
Delano Bay uses the funds we collect each summer to maintain the camp, pay our caretakers, and invest in upgrades to our facility. With the current pandemic, we have a great deal of uncertainty regarding the income we normally bring in over the summer. If it is possible for your family, we would really appreciate holding onto your camper fees and deposits until next year to help us get through this challenging season.
We completely understand, however, if your family needs a refund, though; please contact us if that is the case and we will be glad to issue a refund.
Anyone wishing to cancel and gather a refund is more than welcome to do so. Groups should contact our caretaker at email@example.com, while parents of campers wishing to cancel should contact us via firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you have specific questions about your reservation, please don't hesitate to call (253-884-2966) or email us.
Lastly, we want to emphasize how important our summer season is for keeping the camp operating. We are unsure how many rentals might be canceled due to the pandemic. If your family is able, please consider a one time or recurring donation to Delano Bay Christian Camp.
