1. CORONAVIRUS RELIEF. (As of 9-19-2020):

After a wonderfully successful summer, it is time to hit the pause button. For the next several months, Twin Rocks will discontinue most operations, awaiting a time when COVID and safety-restrictions reduce enough for campers to attend camp comfortably. Only a skeleton crew of staff remains at camp, but we look forward to ramping back up as soon as circumstances allow, which we anticipate occurring sometime in 2021.

Financially, this has been a difficult year for Twin Rocks, but in the midst of adversity, we have so many reasons to be thankful, including gifts totaling nearly $100,000 from more than 150 families.

The overall health of Twin Rocks remains strong, but very large losses appear inevitable in 2020 and 2021. If you are able, a contribution to Twin Rocks at this time would provide enormous help. Thanks.

Here’s a video update describing Twin Rocks’ needs:

As of 5-15-2020:

Many have recently contributed generously to Twin Rocks in this time of great need. Thank you! Before this is over, Twin Rocks will undergo 13 straight weeks without any campers, followed by a summer with less than 50% of its normal attendance. If you are able, we would be grateful if you would mail in a check or use the “Donate” button below. Thanks.

God is good – even in hard times. Twin Rocks Friends Camp has been unable to accept campers for several weeks, and we will remain shuttered until it is safe to reopen. This shutdown comes at a difficult time, normally a season packed full of energetic, exuberant campers. We take great joy in gathering people together to forge friendships, explore nature, and worship our loving Creator, so an empty camp in the midst of a beautiful Oregon Coast spring is hard to accept.

The overall viability of Twin Rocks is not in question, but if the shutdown persists as predicted, Twin Rocks will most likely require a long-term loan, one larger than ever before undertaken.

Gratefully, to date Twin Rocks has fared relatively well. We have managed to retain our employees (thanks to the possibility of a forgivable loan from the Payroll Protection Program). As a staff, we have enjoyed great times of Zoom worship. We are deep cleaning the camp, painting, mowing lawns, and creating an amazing “Nature Center” on the lower level of Friendship Center.

Most importantly, we are eagerly (optimistically) preparing for summer camp! Time will tell if we are actually able to offer our regular slate of camps, but we are having great fun with our planning.

The longer the shutdown persists, the greater the financial damage to Twin Rocks. Thankfully, the recently passed CARES Act provides unique opportunities to give generously to charities of our choice. For example, most adult Americans will soon receive a $1,200 stimulus check and a tax incentive to donate $300 ($600 per couple).* Please consider contributing $300 or more to Twin Rocks (or another charity dear to your heart).

*The CARES Act allows for up to $300 in charitable contributions to be above-the-line income tax deductions, meaning you do not have to itemize to claim the deduction.

 

2. CAPITAL CAMPAIGN: NEW CENTURY CAMPAIGN. Twin Rocks is entering into its second century strong. This campaign will ensure its continued ability to provide the environment and facilities necessary to meet the needs of current and future campers.

3. CAMPER SCHOLARSHIP FUND

A donation to the Camper Scholarship Fund provides assistance to campers and helps Twin Rocks cover the true cost of camp.

4. GENERAL FUND

To keep camp affordable for all, Twin Rocks operates on a very tight annual budget, relying upon generous gifts to its General Fund to make ends meet.
