CAMP NEW HOPE NEWS
Of course, our programs are still on hold but we are thinking ahead and starting to schedule some things. With that being said, everything is subject to change of course.
Our one-day respites are scheduled to start on Saturday, Aug.22th. Our bowling program is scheduled to start on Monday, Sept.14th. We are currently switching over to a new camp software so registration is not available yet, we will announce on here and our Facebook page when it starts.
We are taking this time to upgrade our camp facilities with touchless dispensers and following all of the guidelines to prepare our grounds for opening.
We are also introducing our Camp Fun Days!! This is an opportunity for our campers, their families, and area group homes to come out to camp and enjoy the facilities. There will be two sessions per day, Session 1 - 9:00 am-12:00 pm and Session 2 - 2:00 pm-5:00 pm. If you have any questions or want to reserve a spot call the camp office at 217-895-2341.
Our videos are still being produced for your enjoyment, so check out our Facebook page. Our counselors have been doing a super job this summer with these videos.
Thank you all for your patience and cooperation in this matter. Visit regularly for updates and changes.
We hope that you all are finding fun, relaxing, and creative ways to enjoy one another's company during these wild times! We hope to get past this crisis and see you all very soon, but until then please stay safe. All camp programming will continue to be suspended until further notice. If you've called the office, sent an email or mailed in anything to the office, please be patient as we are doing our best to meet your needs while complying with the Shelter-In-Place requirements.
We miss all your voices, smiling faces, funny jokes, stories, and personalities and we hope that you'll be just as excited to get back with our regular scheduled programming too!
Just remember the sun will shine again!
Have an Optimistic Perspective Everyday = HOPE
With love, Taneya Higginbotham, Executive Director
P.S. - Thank you to all that have continued to give during our Smile Campaign! It means so much now more than ever!
