Thank-you!

Although we were unable to offer our summer programs for children and youth due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we were able to open this beautiful site for picnics, day trips, and stayovers. Over 400 people of all ages enjoyed the beach, sat under shady trees to share a meal and explored our 38 acre site. Current campers showed their families their favourite spots and former campers introduced their children and grandchildren to this place filled with so much story and memory.

Sunsets did not disappoint and the night sky was filled with stars, stars and more stars! 

Thank-you to everyone who blessed us with their presence, their joy and their laughter. Thank-you to our Diocesan leadership, Camp Council, donors and especially our small team of staff members who tended and beautified this holy place through their work, their art, their prayers and their gracious spirits, as they whole-heartedly welcomed the stranger… and entertained angels unaware.

Covid-19

Dear HCC families and Friends:

Where has the time gone?

Stay Home Save Lives - COVID 19 poster

As we shelter in place the world all around us  changes … trees bud, grass greens and flowers bloom,  The air is full of birdsong! The warming of our days brings hope for the coming of summer. As we see our province very slowly and cautiously beginning to open things up again we are looking forward to direction that will help us make decisions about the upcoming season. We are still unsure what this summer may look like. There are still unknowns. We are sure that camp plays a vital role in the lives of our campers, their families our staff and all our supporters and as May unfolds we are taking steps to determine how we can best serve our HCC community this summer. We will let you know what this summer might look like as soon as we can.

In the meantime we want you all to know that we continue to hold you all close and so look forward to the time when we can be together.

If you have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to contact me at 519-434-6893 ext 217 or huronchurchcamp@gmail.com    Rev’d Canon Gerry Adam, Director

P.S. we are posting to Instagram  hcc_social where you can meet the staff and see updates on our Camper Bathroom Project.

Dear HCC Families and Friends:

In light of the recent emergence of Coronavirus (COVID-19), we are writing to let you know about the approach that HCC / Camp Huron is taking to keep our campers safe and healthy at camp. 

In order to ensure a safe experience for everyone, we are monitoring this issue carefully and will continue to do so. We will be working closely with our local public health units as well as working with the Ontario Camps Association and the Diocese of Huron to ensure we are following best practices. We will continue to look to both the experts in Public Health, the Ontario Camps Association guidance and our Diocese of Huron leadership for the most up to date information. 

HCC / Camp Huron has well-established health-specific protocols in place to protect our campers and staff. At this time, there are no changes necessary to any of our programs as we prepare for the camp season ahead. Should any of this change, we will communicate this with you as early as possible. 

You can find trustworthy information about COVID-19 at the Public Health Ontario’s website at https://www.publichealthontario.ca/ or from your own public health unit.

Should you have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to contact me by email

huronchurchcamp@gmail.com or call 519-434-6893 ext 217

Hoping you are staying safe and keeping you and those whom you love in my prayers,

Gerry – The Rev Canon Gerry Adam
Director, Huron Church Camp
