Important Update!

April 9, 2020

Dear CGS Friends, Campers, Parents, Staff and Helpers,

          For most of us, plans for spring and summer activities have been upended by the Coronavirus pandemic.  I pray that you are all doing well during these times.  We pray for God in His mercy to end the spread of this virus.  May He keep you safe and healthy.

          We want you to know that we’re still planning to go forward with our CGS Summer Bible Camps schedule (including our Rally@theCamp! Day on Saturday, May 30th), Lord willing and the government permits us to gather.  However, we will be pausing online preregistrations until May 15.  Feel free to contact us if you have any other questions. 

          I pray that this shutdown ends soon.  Lord willing, I look forward to seeing you at Camp of the Good Shepherd this summer.   It’s true...Jesus is STILL the answer to all of life’s important questions!
