We were able, through partnership with World Vision, to help families with some food assistance, including fruit and vegetables, milk, dairy products, and meat. This assistance is so necessary during this time where so many have lost jobs, had to adjust to changing child care needs, and so many other difficulties we are all facing.
Our staff did an outstanding job leading our campers through a Camp Noah that looked and felt very different than normal. They were able to be flexible as we adjusted to added cleaning needs, mask requirements, social distancing and more. Our leadership staff was very impressed by how well these young people not only managed themselves, but also groups of campers who had been stuck in their houses since March. Station leaders had to be creative in how to implement plans and follow all of the COVID-19 guidelines. Team leaders had to deal with giving constant mask and distancing reminders. AND they did all of it with a smile! We were so pleased with our team of staff and volunteers.
While camp wasn't normal (after all, we couldn't see campers beautiful smiles or even give high-fives), campers were grateful to be out of their house and around their friends. We found ways to have fun, learn about God, and encourage each other throughout the summer.
We couldn't have done this without the support of all of our donors, families, staff, volunteers, partners and supporters! Thank you for making Camp Noah possible.
