COVID-19 - Planning for Fall 2021

Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic we have been closely monitoring and following the direction from our local and provincial health authorities. Doing everything we can to ensure the safety of our students, professors, guests and Camp Qwanoes staff is of the highest priority.

At this time the Kaléo Program is preparing to proceed into the 2021 fall semester in accordance with the BC health regulations, as set out by the BC Center for Disease Control (BCCDC). Given the current projections and restrictions we are excited to invite students to Camp Qwanoes for our usual programming and classes. We are committed to providing our students a safe, fun and life-changing experience, even if we have to adapt it according to the provincial guidelines. Given our smaller class size, remote location and highly controlled community, we remain confident and very hopeful for a safe fall semester.

Given the nature of COVID-19 and the measures taken to stop the spread of the Coronavirus, there may be some aspects of the Kaléo program that need to be adapted during this time, although we are anticipating the fall semester to be conducted as normal.

In partnership with Briercrest College and Seminary, we are continuing to develop a plan for a careful and thoughtful fall semester at Camp Qwanoes for this year’s Kaléo Program, and we will continue to closely monitor the guidelines moving forward. We appreciate your patience and understanding in recognizing that our plans for the fall semester are subject to change.

In all of this we remain deeply committed to providing an incredible program, with rich community, world class adventures, leadership opportunities, ministry experience, transformative discipleship, and outstanding Christian education.

We are praying for a rich year of learning and growth and that God would be keeping you safe during this time.
