Summer 2020 Update

After much prayer, discussion, and consultation with our local health and government authorities, it is with a heavy heart that Word of Life has decided to cancel our 2020 New York Summer Camp programs. While we are greatly disappointed to miss out on the summer season, it has become clear over the past several weeks that additional New York State guidelines and restrictions have made camp completely unfeasible.

Please know that our campers, staff, and community are of utmost importance to us. We trust the Lord, and we are praying that this decision to cancel summer programs will provide new ways for us to reach today’s youth with the gospel of Jesus Christ. We are constantly reminded that although we could not have conceived a scenario where we wouldn’t be running camps a few months ago, our God knew that all of this was coming, and He will redeem this time for His glory.
