MERCER, PA [Camp Nazareth] -- Metropolitan Gregory has announced plans for the 2021 Diocesan Camping Program at Camp Nazareth in an archpastoral letter dated February 19, 2021. The text of the letter is as follows:
Our Camping Season at Camp Nazareth is just around the corner, so to speak. We are looking forward to the Summer and are hopeful that we will be able to proceed with our in-person Camping Program.
The Camp Staff is preparing for a Summer AT Camp. However, while we are planning for in-person Summer Cap right now, we also continue to assess whether or not in-person Summer Camp can and should occur as it has in the past. The answer to that will take work, time and study. I am grateful that year-after-year you entrust the Camp with the care of your children. We take that trust seriously. Camp 2021 will be no exception.
