It is with a heavy heart that we have made the decision to cancel Pioneer Christian Camp this summer due to COVID-19.
We have been monitoring government advice carefully and had hoped that by the time camp came around we would be in a position to go ahead. Following the recent Government update, it is now clear that this will not be possible, primarily due to the restrictions around social distancing. Although camp is in the open air, it will be meal times and sleeping arrangements that will be the most difficult to control and therefore we have concluded that it will not be possible to continue.
In light of the above, and in consultation with our trustees, we have made this difficult decision. We know that both you and your child(ren) will be disappointed with this, but we hope you understand.
We hope that you can appreciate that this decision was not taken lightly. This is only the second occasion in the history of Pioneer Camp that the summer camp has had to be cancelled, the first being in 1956 when the camp site was blown away before the campers arrived on site.
