Dear Rockmont Staff,
This week we made the difficult decision to cancel all of our summer sessions at Camp Rockmont. For the first time in our history, we will not be having camp. It brings real sadness, but also real belief that this is the wisest decision for the health and mission of our community.
You have all made incredible commitments to the Rockmont community for the 2020 Summer, hoping to affect the lives of campers and staff in profound ways. One of the reasons that we have made this decision now is to give you as much time as possible to make new plans for the summer. We appreciate your patience as we have worked to find a way to operate camp.
Rockmont is a source of fun, growth, adventure, and friendship and we know that it only feels more important because of how insular our lives have necessarily become in light of COVID-19. Although it is not how we envisioned things when we began the hiring process with you, we hope that this clarity will begin to give you some closure and help you move towards what is next.
Losing a summer of camp is a significant challenge for us, but we are committed to leading this camp into the future, and we are working to keep our team together. You are part of the team that we will want as we open again next year, so please keep us in your plans. We also want you to know what’s next here at Rockmont as we work towards Summer 2021:
