Daniel Springs Baptist Camp offers Daniel Springs in a Box option for your church groups, families and individuals
By JASON PREWITT
After much prayer and thoughtful deliberation, Daniel Springs Baptist Camp will not be open for our regular summer camp schedule for 2020. We believe the health and safety of our FAMILY (our campers, adult sponsors, staffers and the members of our local community) are of great importance. One of the many things we love about camp at Daniel Springs is how we have campers, sponsors and staff from 10 to over 500 miles away that travel each summer to spend a week together to retreat and be refreshed by God.
With the blessing of family from all over, the health of our family and the adherence to regulations and guidelines set by the Texas governor and CDC becomes immensely challenging to safeguard and manage. Many facets were considered during this process as we poured over the recommended guidelines. In truth, some of the aspects we love most about camp would have to be done away with for us to gather.
Camp is for Bible study, worship, swimming, recreation, it’s meeting new friends and taking every opportunity to build those relationships. Wearing masks, social distancing and limited interactions with people from outside your group are foreign concepts to camp. Camp is for growing together in Christ’s love! On top of the relational side, our staff would be strained with new guidelines that include cleaning, food preparation and health screening.
We know that none of what has happened over the last few months is a surprise to the Lord. Even through this, He has a plan and many opportunities for the church to be on mission. We, personally, are all very disappointed about having to make this decision. The camp is too quiet! We take our mission of being an extension of the church very seriously and consider it a blessing to partner with you in ministry. At this time, we believe this is the very best decision we can make to serve the church, you and your ministry.
We are excited to announce an amazing resource we are working on called Daniel Springs in a Box. This could be an option for your groups, families and individuals to experience some of the things we love about camp. There will be digital resources, like Bible leaders teaching the lessons, recreation ideas and instructional videos and also material you can order such as T-Shirts and camp merchandise. Keep watching our social media sites or go to www.DanielSpringsCamp.comfor updates on Daniel Springs in a Box resources and details.
We are also excited to say that even though we cannot host big groups we have the option to host retreats for groups and families. If you would like to discuss options, feel free to contact us.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the camp at 903-685-2433 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. We know and believe that God moves in great and mighty ways. We are praying for your church and the ministry He has placed you in and if we can be of any help please let us know.
