We acknowledge the current concerns regarding the Covid-19 and the affects it could have on Southland’s summer camping season. We are actively working to maintain the safety and health for each staff-member, B2C student, and future camper. You can be assured that this is our highest priority. We are responsible, however, to the State Health Board of Louisiana which has banned groups of 10 or more and has issued a stay at home order. We have canceled all events during this national and state order. We realize this is a fluid situation and will be monitoring it day by day and communicating via social media updates. As of now we have made significant changes to the summer schedule and plan to make a final decision concerning the entirety of the summer no later than June 1st. Please be assured that we are monitoring the situation closely and view the health of every summer camper, staff-member, and student as our highest priority. Please visit the Summer 2020 page to see the alternated schedule for the summer ministry.
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 email@example.com 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 one on the campus of Southland has acquired the Coronavirus We are taking precautions to keep our staff at distance from one another and checking up on personal health frequently.
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.
