The cancellation letter from Central Coordinator Bill Omand. May 1, 2020
Hello BCFFC Families.
It is with a heavy heart that I’m writing to let you know that BCFFC 2020 has been officially cancelled due to the current COVID-19 pandemic..
Although there has been some great news in the last few weeks with Canada’s efforts in stopping the spread of this disease, it will not be possible to run BCFFC this Summer.
Please believe me, we did not take this decision lightly. We pondered every angle and possibility to try and run our camp.
With little known about restrictions for the Summer, or where this pandemic will be in the future, we are confident that this decision is the right one to keep our families safe and do our part in stopping the spread of COVID-19.
If you have already registered we have a couple options for you in regards to the cancellation;
Option 2) We recognize that some families may need their money back to help get through these challenging times, while other families may already know now that they won’t return to camp next year. If that applies to you, we will cancel your reservation for this year and refund your entire deposit on your credit card. During the cancellation process, we will also give you the option to donate a “cancellation fee” to help cover
credit card processing fees already incurred by BCFFC if you wish to do so. For this cancellation option, please contact your local camp Registrar at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will process your requests as soon as we can.
With this decision behind us we are now already starting to plan BCFFC 2021 and there are a lot of exciting things happening.
– New site for Shuswap camp! Our local Shuswap committee has been working really hard to find a replacement location for Pierre’s Point. There are a few great options and we will be communicating about that as soon as we make final decisions and agreements are in place.
– Program Director Saule will be back for 2021! We’re really excited to see Saule’s ideas come to fruition.- New dates (see below)
