Update on Coronavirus (COVID-19)

**UPDATE March 30th, 2020 At this time RVR will remain closed to the public through April 24th.**

Dear Camper Families,

As you may have already heard, Governor Hogan has closed Maryland public schools and cancelled school activities from March 16 thru April 27, in response to the COVID-19 public health crisis.  In accordance with state mandates, RVR has suspended our retreat and outdoor education programs during those specific dates.  We will continue to monitor the recommendations from the CDC and State Health Department, and will reassess the need to extend this suspension as updates are provided.

We are hoping, praying and expecting that the crisis will have passed by the time summer comes, and at this time we are planning to proceed with camp as scheduled!  Of course, the health and safety of our campers & staff must be the priority as we endure this situation.  We will trust that our elected officials are enacting measures for our collective protection, and we will remain in alignment with their recommendations.

We are developing our summer virus prevention plan right now.   You can expect additional screening measures to be in place for camper check in, to ensure all campers are healthy when they are admitted to camp.  We will send details about those additional admission procedures as we get closer to summer.  We will also have additional health & safety protocols in place during summer camp.

We will continue to do our part to ensure that RVR is a safe & healthy environment for our guests & staff.  We will communicate with all of you if there are new developments that would impact summer camp.  We trust in God's plan, and in His word:  “For God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love, and self-discipline.”  2 Timothy 1:7  

Thank you for your patience, and we wish you all the best as you care for your families.  We will continue to update this page as information changes.
