Dear Judson Family,
At Judson Baptist Retreat Center, we realize the important role we play in providing the best atmosphere possible for your students, staff, church, organization or family to experience Christ. We are always trying to consider and incorporate ways to make Judson even more conducive for our guest to hear from the Lord.
With that in mind, we are all trying to navigate the ever changing scenario involving the coronavirus (COVID-19), the team here at Judson Retreat is working to operate with faith and not fear. 2 Timothy 1:7 should be our response as followers of Christ in any given situation; we move forward in faith and trust in the One who knows us best.
Hopefully by the time that summer camp season rolls around, the current situation should be under control and the majority of it will be behind us. Still the concerns of today are valid, so here are some things we want you to be aware of moving forward.
Our staff is monitoring the COVID-19 pandemic and is responding according to governmental guidelines. As a result, Judson Retreat is closed to guest groups until no earlier than May 15, 2020.
Currently, all our 2020 camping programs are still on! But as with everything surrounding COVID-19 things change rapidly, so we will continue to monitor the events surrounding the pandemic and will make adjustments and decisions based on the recommendations of the State of Louisiana and the CDC.
With the nature of the present events, we have issued some updated registration guidelines for your encouragement, considering COVID-19:
1. Our current cancellation policy remains intact. (Deposits not refundable after 45 days prior to start of camp)
2. If Judson Retreat makes the decision to cancel a summer camping program, the customer will receive a full refund.
3. If you as a Parent elects to cancel your registration, our normal cancellation policy is in force.
4. Understanding you may be waiting to make your summer reservation, we want to make it as affordable as possible for you to attend. We will be extending our March 31 early bird discount to include all registrations. Thank you for your
continued support of Judson Retreat. We look forward to a fantastic summer. See you soon!
5. If you have registered for a camp the first week of June, we are evaluating a delayed start to the summer. If we delay the beginning of summer camp due to COVID-19 you will be given the option of moving to the corresponding camps offered June 15-20, 2020, or receiving a refund. Judson Retreat will make that decision by April 22, 2020.
Judson Retreat is committed to providing a safe, clean environment where children, youth and adults learn about Christ and build relationships with each other and positive role models. Judson Retreat Center is a place for relationships and community, and in this moment, community is especially valuable. Let us know if there are ways we can support and pray for your family. You can also connect with the Judson Retreat community via Judson Retreat social media for suggestions of campy ideas you can do at home!
Thank you for your continued support of Judson Retreat!
