  • COVID CAN'T BEAT COURAGEOUS

    Virtual Camp 2020 coming soon!

     

    Dear Courageous Acres Camp Family,

     

    Courageous Acres is more than just a summer camp. It is a community and a home away from home, where so many are able to be their best selves, to connect to nature, to develop friendships, and to explore various recreational opportunities. Our top priority summer after summer is the physical and emotional well-being of everyone who comes through our gates.

     

    With a heavy heart, we have made the very difficult decision to cancel our 2020 camping season to ensure the safety of our community. The CDC guidelines and the Lucas County Health Department requirements have been taken into consideration. The health and safety of our campers will always come first. This has been a guiding point in all decisions made collaboratively with the board of directors. We simply cannot guarantee the health and safety of our campers during the COVID-19 pandemic.

     

    This has been a difficult decision, yet we know it is the right decision. We wish we could personally tend to the disappointment felt by our campers and caregivers, but we are doing the next best thing which is to find creative ways to bring the spirit of camp directly to you in an online format. In the upcoming days, you will hear more about our plans for virtual camp. We know it will not replace camp, but our goal is to provide a forum for engagement with the outdoors in your home, yard, or neighborhood. We appreciate the support of local small businesses in this endeavor.

     

    For those who have already registered, we will begin refunding payments by order of the camp session. We also offer you the opportunity to repurpose your application fee, in lieu of a refund, if you desire. If you wish to donate your camp registration dollars to help support new sensory materials that will be utilized by our campers for years to come, please let us know by May 15th via email at laurak@ccsohio.org. Unless we hear otherwise, we will ensure the full refund is credited to you as swiftly as possible.

     

    You can trust that we will be working diligently to ensure that Camp 2021 is engaging, fun,and safe for everyone. We look forward to sharing our many facility upgrades and new recreational opportunities,in collaboration with Toledo Metroparks, within the next year. We encourage you to contact us with any questions you have via phone, email or social media.

     

    Stay home. Stay safe. You are in our hearts during these unprecedented times.

     

    Sincerely,

     

    Laura Kuhlenbeck

    Executive Director
