Bigstuf Camp Cancelation Info

Dear Parents and Guardians,

As you have heard by now, the Illinois governor extended our “stay at home” order through the month of May. This new information, in addition to information we received from Bigstuf Camps, forced us to make the decision to NOT attend Bigstuf 2020 in Panama City Beach, Florida. As cases of COVID-19 continue to rise, the safety of our students is more important than risking travel and exposure to students from across the country. We are working with Bigstuf Camps and the Vandalia Bus Company to receive partial refunds for deposits paid.

Since Bigstuf Camp is a large summer-long event, the refund process is expected to take a few weeks. We will issue another email with additional information as soon as it is concrete.

We have seen incredible resilience in teenagers as they have coped with disappointment and changes, but we know they will be sad to miss out on one of their favorite weeks of summer. Bigstuf is a time when students show up with expectation...for friendship, spiritual growth, and decisions that impact their lives moving forward.

We are working as a staff, to create alternative summer plans that will keep students engaged and expectant for God to show up in unexpected ways. More information will follow.
