Hello camp families, campers, friends, staff, and alumni,
After much deliberation and careful consideration, it is with a very heavy heart that we have made the decision to close our gates for the 2020 4-H Camp Wyomoco season.This was not a decision we made lightly, and the safety and well-being of our campers, staff, and community remain our number one priority.While we’re heartbroken, we felt it was impossible to meet the mission of camp while also safely managing pandemic conditions for both our campers and our staff alike.
We will be offering campers and their families different refund options:
1) A full refund, including deposits, to all of our families.
2) Deferring your camp refund; this option allows 4-H Camp Wyomoco to apply said funds to next year’s camp season.
3) To donate some or all of your refund to 4-H Camp Wyomoco to cover our non-variable operating costs, including supporting our year-round employees who depend on their camp employment. We couldn’t be more grateful for your generosity during this difficult summer.
You MUST let us know by June 30, 2020 which option you would like; if we do not hear from you by July 1st we will assume you are interested in a full refund and will do so accordingly. Refunds will be processed starting July 1st, this allows our camp families time to make the decision that best suits their needs. Please email your refund choice to firstname.lastname@example.org; please make sure you provide your campers names in the email! Please don’t hesitate to contact us should you have any questions or concerns.
Thank you all for your unwavering support and dedication during this difficult time.Currently we are planning other programming options for campers; these options could include virtual camp programming and/or possible small group or family activities in person at camp later in the fall.We are also looking for ways to still connect with all of you throughout the summer, so stay tuned for news about the possibility for family programs and some CIT news!Remember to follow us on Facebook for updates and to reach out to us at any time.We’re here for you all summer and year-round!
While 4-H Camp Wyomoco will look different this year, we want you to remember that we will come back to our home away from home next year.We will build another fantastic staff that can’t wait to create “camp magic” for another group of Wyomoco campers.We will welcome horses again and ride the camp trails.We will make friendship bracelets for, literally, EVERYONE!We will make our horseshoe around the flagpole each morning and recite the 4-H Pledge.We will feel that glow of returning home when we turn into the driveway on drop-off day. We will marvel at the awesome view across the fields and the hills. We will play, laugh, dance the night away, put on costumes, meet for cookie break, and round-up at the trees to do attendance.Maybe we will pause for a moment to just take in the beauty and magic all around us. We will be together once again to close out campfires the way we always do…because each campfire lights anew the flames of friendship true!We will be back at 4-H Camp Wyomoco, and we look forward to welcoming everyone for the greatest camp season yet in 2021!
