We acknowledge the concerns right now regarding the Covid-19 and the affects it could have on Southland’s camping season. We are actively working to maintain the safety and health for each camper. You can be assured that this is our highest priority. There are no known cases of Covid-19 in our Parrish to date. We are responsible, however, to the State Health Board of Louisiana which has banned meetings of 50 or more at this time. We are sensitive to the limiting of group meetings and will leave it in the leadership of each church concerning your camp or retreat in the next month. We realize this is a fluid situation and will be monitoring it day by day with a minimum of weekly social media updates.
Please pray with us concerning this matter that is gripping our country and world. We are asking God to point people to Him and His love and that many will be drawn to true salvation during this time. If you have other questions, please contact us directly at firstname.lastname@example.org or call our office at 318-894-9154.
Has Southland made changes to any of its scheduled camps for the spring or summer?
Not at this point. We are continuing to monitor this rapidly changing situation and will update as needed. We have concluded all of our spring events with a few rental camps scheduled. The rental camps will need to make the decision for their own church. If the state requirements cause us to limit groups of 50 or more, then all camp rentals will be canceled by Southland. We would encourage planning for summer camp programs at this time and as we move forward, decisions will become more clear. We do recognize that our summer camp programs may be affected.
Has anyone at Southland acquired COVID-19?
No. There are no cases in Our Parrish. We are monitoring the situation closely.
Any other thoughts for us as we plan to attend camp?
With summer camp coming shortly, we would ask that anyone with symptoms of COVID-19 be tested before coming to camp. In the event that the pandemic situation is still worsening, we are prepared to do whatever it takes for the health and safety of the campers. If this means cancelling summer camp, we are prepared to do so.
