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.


The Camp Directors met this past Friday (5/1/2020) to determine the course of action for summer 2020. We are continuing to monitor the pandemic and realize the concerns you might have. As we move closer to the start of camp, we ask that you continue to pray for the camp, our campers, faculty, and staff, and the nation. The following decisions and changes have been made.

  • Camp Rally- May 31- has been cancelled
  • If ‘Social Distancing’ is being stipulated in the month of July, we will not be able to host camp. Cancellations, if needed, will be posted on Facebook, Camp Website, and emails will be sent to those registered.
  • If there are other limits/regulations being imposed that will negatively impact our summer events, we will adhere to them and communicate those to you.
  • Camper’s temperature will be taken at registration.
  • Cleaning efforts will be increased; hand washing will be strongly encouraged.
  • The nurse may send any camper, faculty, or staff home if they display any symptoms of COVID-19.
  • Those entering 6th grade this fall will be combined with the 4th & 5th grade; those entering 7th grade will be attached to 8th & 9th grade.


  • Our weeks of camp in June have all been moved to July:
    • Grades 7, 8, & 9- July 5-10 ($100)
    • Grades K & 1- Saturday July 11 ($25)
    • Grades 10-12- July 12-18 ($125)
    • Grades 4, 5, & 6- July 19-23 ($80)
    • Grades 2 & 3- July 24-25 ($30)

- 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.

- 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.
