Dear Friends of Covenant Point,

We are thinking of you and praying for you during these days. It’s a new world for all of us, and we remind ourselves that we are invited in every way to bring our concerns to God – who is faithful. At Covenant Point, we are taking precautions, planning, looking for creative ways to serve our neighbors, and anticipating what may be next. All the while, we are seeking God as we navigate our lives, our families and ministry through these uncertain times.

As of this morning, Michigan has come under a shelter in place order from our governor. We are currently seeking to understand what this means and how to maintain essential administrative and operational functions within the boundaries of the order. Thank you for your patience as we sort this out.

We do not know what life will look like in mid-June, when summer programs are scheduled to begin. Nevertheless, we continue to plan in faith and hope for summer camp. As of today, we have 530 youth campers and 30 families registered for summer programs. Our deep hope is that we will be able to love and serve each one – and more – this summer through a transformative week of camp.

Please know that we are extending the deadline for the Early Registration Discount to May 15 ($35 off the program fee, if postmarked or submitted online and paid in full by May 15). This is one small way we felt our ministry could support camper families as each navigates these difficult circumstances.

Our primary concern is for the health and safety of our campers, their families, our staff and communities. And, we are committed to adhering to the guidance of the CDC and our public officials. We will make decisions in accordance with that guidance. We can assure you that we will communicate early and clearly if there are changes to the summer schedule.

To stay in touch with camp, follow us on Facebook & Instagram and check often.

Please don’t hesitate to contact us with questions.
May you know God’s presence and peace in the days ahead.
