The leadership of Camp Likely regrets to announce that due to low staffing numbers and unforeseen circumstances we are forced to cancel all camps for the 2022 season.


We understand that this is difficult and frustrating for kids and parents alike, but safety is our number one priority and we feel we are not able to provide the safest possible camp experience at this time. We apologize for the inconvenience and disappointment this announcement causes and hope that it does not bring too much disruption to your summers. If you have already registered for camp this summer you should have an email with this announcement in your inbox. Any payments made will be fully refunded within the next week. If you do not receive a refund by July 15 please contact office@camplikely.com and we will make sure to sort it out for you. This is very hard news for us at Likely. We love summer camp, we love kids, and we love sharing the good news of Jesus. We are very disappointed that we will be unable to run camps this summer!


We pray and look forward to coming back, better than ever, for summer 2023. Sincerely, On behalf of the Camp Likely Leadership, Brian Piccioni Camp Director 604-799-0605

In our last update, we announced that the BC government was lifting its ban on overnight camps for children and that conditions and guidelines would be released soon. Well, we received the guidelines earlier this week, and after considering what was required to run overnight camps under COVID restrictions and how late it is in the year, we have made the hard decision to not host overnight camps. We know that some will be very disappointed about this. Still, an honest evaluation has led us to decide that we do not have the resources to run overnight camps safely.


The good news is that we have been planning day camps for months, and as of now, registration is reopened for our July day camps! We are excited to host two weeks of day camps in Williams Lake this summer! In addition to this, we still will have Family Camp at Camp Likely on the August long weekend.


If you are interested in day camp, please find more information here or register now!


One last thing - if you are 15 years or older and would like to help out at camp this summer, we have opportunities for you to join our staff! Staff training will be held at Camp Likely from July 12-18.


Thanks everyone for your patience and understanding as we make the long journey out of this pandemic together. I can't wait to see you this summer!


In Christ,

Brian

In case you haven't heard yet, our Provincial Health Officer announced yesterday that she is lifting the ban on overnight camps for children and youth this summer.

While of course we are elated by this news, it also means that we have a lot of details to figure out, and a lot of work to do in a short period of time. New guidelines won't be released until next week and at that point, we'll be able to get back to the drawing board. The announcement made it clear that there will be limitations on the overnight camps that do run, and an overnight camp will require a drastically different plan and a much larger staff than our day camp plan.


That being said, we're hopeful and expecting to have overnight camps. As it stands, our plan is to shift our planned camp days to overnights and not run day camps in Williams Lake. As excited as we were to do that, we simply don't have the resources to do both.


If you didn't make it through the rest of this post here's the most important point: overnight camps are coming to Camp Likely! We'll talk again next week with more details. Thank you for your patience and understanding! If you're looking for something to do in the meantime, consider applying as staff this summer!
