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.

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.
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.
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!
This winter, we were able to add a new refrigerator to our fully-commercial kitchen. Now we have an updated stainless steel kitchen that will be easier to clean and make sure our foods meet all safety standards.
