Blessings for Bountiful Fundraising Campaign: June 3, 2021 UPDATE

Final Total: $ 56,965

We reached our goal of $40,000 AND surpassed it because of the generosity of our supporters. The Camp Bountiful Board of Directors say THANK YOU!  We continue to receive donations for the campaign, therefore the total will be updated every few days. We also extend a very special thank you to those that kicked off this campaign with $20,000 in matching funds.
Officially our campaign has ended, but if you want to join others in supporting Camp Bountiful by replenishing our operating funds, please designate on your check or PayPal that it is for “fundraising campaign”.

2021 Camp Bountiful Camps

After consultation with several people, including the CB Board chair,
former camp directors and others, Candy and I have come to the decision
that we will cancel all Community of Christ summer camps for 2021.

The decision was not made lightly, but a combination of issues,
including distancing, ventilation of sleeping quarters, sanitation
requirements, dining concerns, safety with programs, availability of
directors and staff, medical personnel, and other factors as identified
by the American Camping Association and Center for Disease Control made
cancellation the safest choice at this time. Decisions regarding fall
retreats will be made sometime during the summer.

We expect a decision on Spec to be made in May.

We realize the graduating seniors from 2020 and 2021 will have missed
their last opportunity to participate in Sr Hi camp. We hope to find a
way for a gathering for them once it is safe to meet again.

Gratitude for Lodge Updates

We thank our skilled volunteers who worked in the lodge on extending the railings in the loft areas. It was quite a project with many different talents needed and lots of planning. The lofts are now ready for camping season to open again. We rely on volunteers to make Camp Bountiful the awesome campground that we love so much.

COVID-19 Updates

Camp Bountiful Board along with the First Presidency of the Community of Christ church continue to monitor State of Ohio guidelines and recommendations from professional health organizations about preventing the spread of COVID-19. Based on this information we have suspended gatherings at Camp Bountiful. We look forward to seeing you again as soon as it is possible.

Decisions for the 2021 camping season have not been made yet.  We continue to monitor the situation and keep in close communication with the world church.

Painting of Men’s Bathroom

On August 14-15, 2020 we had four Jr. High campers come help rejuvenate the men’s restroom in the lodge. Sophie, Marlee, Lexi, and Jackie all came to spend the night at camp and paint decorations on the stalls. Friday night they painted all the stalls black, then Saturday they came up with designs and practiced painting them on paper to get them just right. Once they voted on who could do which picture best, they started in on the real thing. They worked very hard and did a great job. They are not quite finished, but will return to complete their work. Thanks so much to these fun volunteers!
