Camp Joshua news and update

As of this message we do not yet know what the phase of opening will look like in Virginia by the late summer.  VSHL has decided to continue with plans to hold Camp as in years before. Camp is scheduled for July 31, August 1-2 in Staunton, VA.  At this point the camp is working with us to plan to meet safety standards as they are required. The camp facilities are flexible enough and easily adapted for those teens who attend.

Registrations are open and of course VSHL will be prepared to change plans as the state rules change.  If Camp must be canceled due to COVID-19 rules, all registration fees will be returned.  Click here for details for details.
