A MUSIC CAMP FOR WINDS AND STRINGS
After prayer and deliberation, the GWSM camp board regrets to announce that GWSM Camp 2020 has been cancelled.
Our motivation is not fear, but good stewardship. We are secure in our Good Shepherd, Jesus Christ, and as his sheep we find freedom from fear! Here are a few reasons we've decided to cancel:
Ohio has not given word about the status of summer camps. There is a real possibility it won't be an option.
If Ohio allows summer camps, there will probably be severe distancing restrictions and safety measures we can't adhere to because we are a band camp (ie., we are in small spaces close together, and at least for wind players, we can't wear masks and play. Trying to have camp with such restrictions would be detrimental to quality and student experience.
We are aware that COVID-19 has affected our families in a variety of ways, and some will need to opt out of attending camp this year, due to finances, scheduling, and safety precaution. This affects the camp budget and quality of each ensemble.
We are looking forward to a great camp in 2021, and are making plans to celebrate the generations of GWSM campers that have enjoyed making music together!
Look for updates on our website and follow us on Facebook and Instagram throughout the summer! We'll be sharing with you and challenging you to share with us!
