As we plan Camp Hope Haven 2021, we are happy to report that overnight summer camps will be allowed in Virginia this summer. As we continue to pray about camp, we are moving forward with an overnight camp schedule—and registration starts this week! Registration can be found here.
Camp Hope Haven will see a few changes, however. Here are a few important things to know…
Limited Camper Numbers
With the current COVID-19 regulations, we are limiting the number of campers each week to 60 with an additional wait list of 36 for each week. This could allow us to add more campers as CDC and state guidelines change.
Change in Camp Dates
To maximize the efficiency of camp and allow for all of our normal age groups to attend, we are switching around some of our traditional camp timeframes. This is our new schedule.
June 21-25, Younger Girls, 8-10 years old
June 28-July 2, Older Boys, 11-12 years old
July 5-9, Teen Girls, 13-15 years old
July 12-16, Younger Boys, 8-10 years old
July 19-23, Older Girls, 11-12 years old
July 26-30, Teen Boys, 13-15 years old
These dates are also posted on the Camp Hope Haven page.
Registration for Camp Hope Haven 2021 will officially open on Friday, March 5 at 8 a.m. You can register here.
If you preregistered your children for Camp Hope Haven in 2020, you will not have to re-register them. We have transferred all preregistered children to the new week for their age groups. If these new dates will not work with your child’s summer schedule, please contact Hope Haven at your earliest convenience so that we can allow for as many campers as possible.
We are excited to host our 60th camping season this summer and we appreciate your patience, flexibility, and understanding as things may change to make that happen. We will do our best to keep you updated on any new decisions and policies.
If you have any questions regarding the new camp dates or procedures related to COVID, please contact Diana Johnson at the Hope Haven office. The best email to contact us through is firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also call us at (757)427-1500. Our current office hours are Monday- Thursday 9am- 4pm, Friday 9am- 1pm.
Grace and Peace,
