HS Spring Retreat Registration

SPRING RETREAT CANCELLED

Dear Students and Parents,

It is with heavy heart that we are announcing the cancellation of our 2020 High School Retreat scheduled for March 12-15. Today we were informed by Camp Buckner, the facility that we use for camp, that due to the Coronavirus being upgraded to a Pandemic status, they have decided to suspend all activities on their properties until further notice. This unfortunately includes our High School Retreat.

To the parents who trusted us enough to send your children and to the students who made plans to join us on this trip, we apologize for any inconvenience this has caused.  In our history of camping at San Antonio Youth for Christ, this is only the second time we have had to cancel a camp in over 50 years of ministry.  We would also like to thank all the staff and volunteers for their hard work in preparation for this camp and trust that God’s sovereign plan is at work through all of this.

I want to ask you to join us in prayer for our nation and the safety of all during this challenging time. Below are some Questions and Answers we hope will help as you process this announcement.  

  1. What will happen to my camp payment?

    • If you paid by check, cash or credit card, a full refund of what you paid in this manner will be paid back to you in a check from YFC.  All checks can be picked up or will be mailed out.

    • If you raised money for this trip through a fundraiser (i.e. Raffle tickets, Mr. W Fireworks) then that money will be banked for you, to be used at a future YFC event (I.E. Summer Camp or summer trips).

    • You can pick up your check from the YFC office on Monday, March 23, between the hours of 10 am-7 p.m. if not picked up on this date, check will be mailed to the address on registration.

  2. Can I transfer my camp payment to someone else to be used at a future YFC event?

    • Yes, but is must be done in writing to the YFC office by March 30, 2020

      • Written letters can be sent to:

  3. Is our High School Trip cancelled or Postponed?

    • The High School 2020 Retreat is officially cancelled and there will not be a High School Retreat this year.

    • We will be making announcements via social media, clubs and our website about future events this year.

 

I want to assure you that the safety of students is our highest priority, and we are working with both our local and national leadership to develop the best strategies to serve students in our present situation.
