Greetings Friend of Angeles Crest,
As you know, the coronavirus pandemic has changed everything.
Here are 3 things I thought you’d appreciate knowing about Angeles Crest.
First of all, Angeles Crest is obeying safety mandates, but planning for the future.
We have closed down the camp through April, but at this point, we are accepting late spring bookings and are planning for a full summer of guest group and program camps. However, like other businesses, we have lost over $100,000 in income due to Spring group cancellations. And, just like our home budgets we still have the costs for keeping camp going.
Second, our Board of Directors have met, prayed and charted a five-month plan.
This includes the following:
- We have cut our operational spending to a bare minimum.
- We will continue to work from our home offices to book future groups.
- We are keeping all staff but reducing hours.
- We will maximize all of our financial resources, including the use of all funds in our savings account. This includes the turf field fund, but we fully intend to repay what is borrowed when we are back in full swing.
- Once our savings funds are exhausted, we will draw on our line of credit to carry us through as needed.
- We will seek donations from churches, organizations and individuals to help keep the camp moving forward.
Third, although we are doing what we can to meet this challenge, we know that,
ultimately, we must rely on the Lord to see us through this difficult time. One of our board members reminded us of this promise found in Scripture…
I lift up my eyes to the mountains…where does my help come from?
My help comes from the Lord, the Maker of heaven and earth.”
– Psalm 121:1-2
Finally, let’s pray for one another.
We will appreciate prayer for provision for Angeles Crest Christian Camp and know that we are praying for you and your families during this challenging season. We also ask that if the Lord stirs your heart, please consider sending a financial gift.
We continue to be passionate about our calling which is “to provide a great mountain top experience with an eternal impact” to all the children and youth who visit our camp.
Thank you for your continuing support.
In His Grace,
