Coronavirus (COVID-19): What You Need to know

(Updated June 26th)

At Grand View Camp, the safety and well-being of our staff and guests continue to be our top priority. In light of the recent concerns over the Coronavirus (COVID-19), we have evaluated our health and safety procedures that are already in place and taken additional precautionary steps where needed. We are carefully following our state and local Department of Health guidelines. 

Like all of you, we are learning much about trusting God in times of uncertainty and asking Him for wisdom to do the next right thing. At this point we are still prayerfully preparing for a summer of ministry beginning our program youth camps on June 29. 

I understand many of you may be hesitant to register with the uncertainties surrounding the virus. If the local Department of Health issues guidance that meant either the camp or the campers had to change their schedule because of the virus, we will gladly refund those fees in full. 

We believe this will be a summer like no other and are looking forward to seeing how God accomplishes His purposes. Please contact us if you have any questions.

    Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

    Will Summer Programs still be taking place in 2020?

    We are planning to begin our summer program youth camps on June 29. We are prayerfully looking forward to the upcoming summer season. Our full time staff is working diligently to prepare for the summer season and for Grand View to be full of campers and guests as soon as we are safely able to do that. We are confident that our good and sovereign God will use this season to accomplish His purposes for His glory!

    What additional safety measures are you putting in place to prevent the spread of COVID-19?

    We have developed a comprehensive set of guidelines in consultation with the Arizona Department of Health and the Apache County Department of Health. These guidelines are available in the sidebar link. We are also sending screening forms to all guests before arrival in addition to screening them for symptoms upon arrival.

    Has anyone at Grand View acquired COVID-19?
    No. To the best of our knowledge, no staff members, campers, or guests have acquired COVID-19.

    Any other thoughts for us as we plan to attend camp?
    We do ask that all potential volunteers and campers be symptom free of fever and respiratory illness for 14 days before arriving at camp. Thank you for working with us to ensure the health of our campers, staff, and community. We look forward to seeing you soon.
