The CFC Board of Directors had a virtual meeting Saturday, May 2nd and discussed whether CFC 2020 would still be held at Cedar Lake this July 19-26.
Based on our primary concern for the safety and health of every camper and our extended CFC family, we voted unanimously to change from a physical gathering format to a Virtual Chinese Family Camp this year!
Initial planning has already started for our virtual camp and more details will be communicated to all of you as they become available. If any of you have ideas for our first virtual camp and/or would like to be involved with planning/hosting parts of our virtual camp, let us know in a reply to this email. Please note that we will use the same week in July (19-26) for our virtual CFC activities.
Some of the ideas we have for Virtual CFC 2020 (depending on who can help plan/host):
- Morning Sing
- Words of Wisdom from the Camper of the Day
- BambooRen Micro E-Triathlon
- Field Day – The Home Edition
- (We hope to have Uncle Clarence run the water balloon toss from his home)
- Scavenger Hunt!
- WaWaSee U
- Heritage Program
- Games (fishbowl, mahjong, Trivial Pursuit, Codenames, etc.
- And as many other events as we can figure out how to run remotely
As mentioned previously, for all of you who have already registered and electronically paid the $100 deposit, you can request a refund or have your deposit used for CFC 2021 next year. If you are requesting a refund, please email me (Lawrence Wang) directly at firstname.lastname@example.org and the refund will be arranged.
We are also discussing virtual gatherings before our July virtual camp as well as a more robust winter reunion for campers of all ages to keep the CFC spirit alive throughout the year; with respect to a winter reunion, the status of COVID-19 will dictate whether this is a physical gathering or a virtual reunion. We will keep you updated as more details become available. We are very excited to offer a variety of CFC events during Virtual CFC 2020, the week of July 19th – 26th. Save the dates!
We will be in touch.
Stay safe and healthy!
