LOOKOUT MOUNTAIN CAMP FOR BOYS
TO THE LMC COMMUNITY...
First and foremost, we hope you are staying well. During this unprecedented time, we are adjusting to the current circumstances that all of us are facing and we want you to feel confident in our preparedness.

While the coronavirus currently poses no immediate concern for camps in our vicnity, we want you to know that Lookout Mountain Camp for Boys has communicable disease plans in place that will be revised in cooperation with public health authorities as additional COVID-19 guidance is provided. Further, we will work closely with our local public health department to maintain effective protocols for the identification and appropriate treatment of any illnesses that may occur at camp, including COVID-19. We want our parents and staff members to know that we will continue to update you as new information becomes available.

Our sympathies go out to those who are directly affected by the virus or who have been negatively affected by its broader impact. We continue to follow the guidance of the CDC at Camp, are aligned with industry protocol, and are making prudent decisions as new information becomes available to protect our people as well as position LMC to be able to serve Camper Families.
Protecting the well-being of our LMC community has and will always be our top priority. Our team understands the concern and uncertainty cause by the coronavirus (COVID-19). We’re here to help in any way we can. While this situation hasn’t been easy on anyone, we remain committed to fulfilling the mission of Lookout Mountain Camp for Boys…and all it has to offer.

We would like to address what seem to be the main areas of concern prevalent amongst Parents to date.

1.) “WILL CAMP BE OPEN THIS SUMMER?”
The short answer is: “YES.” We have given this a lot of thought and believe, given the logistics we are dealing with today and coupled with our proximity, that we will be able to have Summer Camp this summer. In addition, we feel that we will be able to meet the existing scheduled session dates now in place. Unless something dramatically changes for the worse, we are planning on having camp open and wanted to get this information in front of you so that you can start to make plans.

2.) “THIS SITUATION HAS US VERY CONCERNED AS REGARDS OUR CASH FLOW AND FAMILY BUDGET.”
We fully understand the impact this is having folks…across not only our Nation, but the World. We are not insensitive to this. Those of us who experienced Katrina know fully well what it’s like to have your life upended. So, now, just as we did then (and in Hurricane Rita), we are going to do whatever we can to ease the financial pain. To better assist those impacted by the crisis, we are pausing camp fee payment dates, effective immediately. This pause will remain in effect through May 15, 2020. The ongoing situation impacts everyone, and we want our LMC Families to have some peace of mind knowing that they will not miss an opportunity to come to camp because of a payment delay due to this horrible situation. We're also prepared to offer maximum flexibility, including special payment plans to those who need it once normal billing operations are scheduled to resume.
If a payment schedule is needed…simply let us know.
And, of course, there will be no interest charged in using the plan.

LMC has been around a long time...since 1928. We have seen and been through crises in the past...the 1929 depression, the Polio outbreak, two World Wars, Vietnam, Katrina and the BP spill, various hurricanes, the 2008 financial crisis and now...this. Throughout all those stressful times, the camp has stood strong with Families across the Southeast (and elsewhere) and we will continue to do so today.

We will…all of us…be stronger because of this. Every family at LMC is special to us. To those of you who have been with us, you know exactly what we mean when we say “special.”
To those of you who are about to experience us for the first time, believe me when I say…that word…“special”…is more than just a word. It’s for real.

As we say each day at camp: “May the Lord watch between me and thee; while we’re absent, one from another.”

Hang in there...it will end.    Pray for the infirmed... and WASH YOUR HANDS!
