Gasconade Christian Service Camp 


COVID-19 Response

At GCSC, the health and safety of campers, faculty, and staff are of the utmost importance to us. We are monitoring the development of COVID-19 and will be following the guidelines set forth by government agencies (Center for Disease Control and the Pulaski County Health Department) in protecting the health and well-being of our Gasconade Family.

Currently we have cancelled all planned events until April 30, 2020. On May 1, we will resume all events as scheduled, assuming the COVID-19 threat has been diminished in our camp community (currently we serve churches from Springfield, MO area down the I-44 corridor to St. James, MO). SpringFest (scheduled for April 24-25) will be moved to the fall.

We take our responsibility very seriously and we will make decisions based on current recommendations, as well as in response to changing local and national conditions. Please feel free to contact Jason Leinbaugh (jasonleinbaugh@cccb.edu) with any additional questions or concerns. We’ve never faced anything like this and we covet your prayers as we make these decisions.

Our current (as of 4/1/2020) response plan regarding Summer Camp 2020

- All summer camp sessions/rentals will proceed unless the virus impact becomes a threat to our community, in which case, we will notify the families/churches.

- If the virus impact forces us to close our summer sessions, Full Refunds will be offered.

- Health screening will see additional questions regarding travel history two weeks prior for campers, faculty, and staff.

- As always, the medical portion of the registration form(s) must be completed for all sessions.

- For the protection of our campers, staff, and families, GCSC reserves the right and responsibility to restrict, disallow, or reschedule a camper’s program, if needed.

- As part of check-in, best practices for not spreading germs will be presented and strongly encouraged for all campers, faculty, and staff.

- GCSC will stay in contact with parents/guardians/churches in the event of a suspected COVID-19 diagnosis and within HIPPA regulations.

For our ministry

- Please continue to pray for our country, church communities, as well as our ministry at Gasconade. We, the Camp Directors and Camp Manager, are in discussion to ensure the ministry of GCSC will always remain true to her mission. We anticipate the near future to present several obstacles for us to overcome. Our biggest hurdle to navigate is the loss of financial support. If you would like to assist, there are multiple ways to donate.
