We are aware of the concern and uncertainty surrounding the COVID-19 virus outbreak across the world and now in New Zealand. Throughout this week, our team have spent much time praying, seeking advice and discussing how this impacts Camp Survivor this year. And it is the decision of LifeSwitch Leadership to postpone Camp Survivor in the upcoming April school holidays. This is not a decision made lightly or in fear, rather we truly believe this is a time to act wisely for the health and wellbeing of all those involved.
We know that Camp Survivor means so much to our church and our community, so we are saddened by the difficult choice we have had to make. But we are committed to Camp Survivor, as we have been for many years and will be for many more. Our heart is to reschedule camp for the nearest available date, but due to the everchanging nature of this pandemic we cannot at this time predict when that will be.
Our incredible volunteers and staff have already put so much work into pulling things together and we thank them for their commitment to Camp Survivor and for being a part of creating awesome environments for kids and young people. We really have the most amazing team behind camp!
