Dear RUSH Parents, Students & Leaders,
It has been such a crazy time in the world and one that has affected all of us in so many different ways. RUSH Camp has not been immune to these effects. After moving the original dates for camp and adding essential safety guidelines to preserve this special experience for our students, we had hoped to continue to see incredible life change in Daytona. However, with a drastic increase in cases of COVID-19 in Florida, the new state of Florida & Daytona Beach city requirements, and the advice of medical professionals, it has become clear that camp is not going to be able to meet our safety expectations or be the experience our students have come to know and love. Therefore, it is with much prayer and a heavy heart that we have decided the wisest thing to do is to cancel RUSH Camp 2020.
This has been an extremely difficult decision made after fervent prayer and consultation with our entire student team, staff and elders. We know this is frustrating for students and families who have lost so much this year due to the pandemic. It was for that very reason we have fought so hard to continue with RUSH 2020. We continue to see the need for time to be together to worship God in spirit and truth. Due to that need, we will continue to plan and find ways for us to bring our students together to encourage them in their faith as they take steps closer to Jesus.
Stay tuned for more info and communication about upcoming student plans soon.
Regarding the next steps for RUSH 2020, we will be issuing full refunds to everyone who has made a payment. Due to the number of refunds, we ask for your patience as our team will be processing them as quickly as possible. It could take up to 30 days for you to receive your refund. Since we have canceled the event, there is no need to notify us of needing a refund, as we will be refunding everyone registered.
If you have any questions about anything mentioned in this email, please email us at RUSH@westridge.com or call 770-222-2125.
Though this is sad news, we appreciate everyone’s belief in RUSH Camp, our church, and, most of all, choosing to trust God through this decision-making process. We will continue to pray and believe that God will do even more amazing things in our students’ lives and our church in the days, weeks, and months ahead! Know you are loved, and we hope you have a great rest of your summer!
