At all times, the priority for Camp Kintail is the physical health and safety of all our campers, guests, and staff. This is especially important right now.
In compliance with and in support of the Ontario government’s decision to close non-essential workplaces, Camp Kintail will be closed until it is deemed safe to open again. This means that the site is closed to all visitors, guests, campers, and volunteers.
Several Camp Kintail staff live and work on site, and their work will continue. Other staff live off-site, and they will be working remotely. The staff who live on site are considered a household, and they will not be social distancing from each other, although they are from everyone else. The staff off-site are practicing social distancing.
The Camp Kintail Board met last Saturday via zoom and will be meeting again this Saturday. They will meet regularly during this uncertain time to ensure that thoughtful, safe, and faithful decisions are being made for Camp Kintail. We will always comply with government and public health recommendations for the safety of all. We will be making decisions about our spring and summer season in the weeks ahead and will let everyone know when those decisions are made.
We continue to pray for all those impacted, here at home and around the world. We have international staff from around the globe and we are mindful that many of their families are living through more difficult situations than we are facing right now. We pray for our health care staff and send all our love to them. We pray for our congregations, our loved ones who are vulnerable, and for those who are struggling financially. We pray for all the essential workers who are keeping life moving as normally as possible.
We are not alone; we are wrapped in the love of God. For this, we give thanks.
Rev. Theresa McDonald-Lee & Johnathon Lee
