Montlure Presbyterian Summer Camp 2020
Ongoing Response to the COVID-19 Crisis
“Due to the health crisis and concerns of COVID-19, it is with a very heavy heart we have to announce that all physical, in-person camps, will not happen for Summer 2020. While it was not an easy decision to make, it was the only decision as the safety of our campers and staff is always our first priority. We are very excited about the new and re-imagined camp experience.”

“Virtual Camp 2020″
Montlure has been working full-time to reimagine camp for summer 2020. Here is what it will look like:
- Camps will begin on Sunday afternoon and end on Thursday evenings, with an optional Friday morning “Open house.”
- Every day will have a complete schedule from the wake-up call to bedtime.
- We will intermix video conferencing to build intentional community along with specific self-guided “offline” experiences for campers to complete in the allotted time and various intergenerational options for families to experience together.
- Although we have a full schedule, we don’t expect our campers to be online all day.
- Depending on age, their online meetings will be 25-40 mins each, at various points throughout the day.
- In between time will be given to the provided offline activities, as well as optional times they can log in for “sign up” activities or to just chat with counselors in a group setting.
CAMPER KITS: Prior to camp, each camper will also receive a camp t-shirt, water bottle, and all the other program materials and resources for offline activities.
WHAT ABOUT INTERNET SAFETY?
Camper safety is Montlure’s first priority. “We have already learned more than we ever thought we would need to as a camp about online safety and we will do everything in our control to make sure the spaces we create are secure and safe.”
