RYC Work Days 2021

Dear friends of Rustic Youth Camp, 

If we are going to to pass inspection in order for RYC to operate this year, we need your help! There is much work that must be done immediately. Mr. Jackie has a list from the local health inspector.

We plan to have weekly workshops every Saturday beginning March 20th.

Please contact Vicki Russell by email or text to let her know which day or days you can help. 

We will supply the materials and tools, just bring your own food and drinks. 

Plans will be finalized within the next couple of weeks as to what our capacity will be and how we will conduct the registration. 

Thank you so much for your patience as we navigate through this crazy year!

A special message from Jackie:

It grieved me deeply that we were unable to have camp this past summer. They say that we are not out of the woods yet with this pandemic. It is our intention to have camp this summer but we do not know what restrictions or mandates will be placed upon us yet. We will be staying in constant contact with the Alabama Department of Public Health (ADPH) and the Franklin County Health Department.

For those who say “there’s nothing to it, 95% don’t get very sick,” let me say that I have personally lost a number of good friends, some near kinsmen, and brothers and sisters in Christ. I can assure you that their suffering and the grief on the part of their families was very real. Based on the many reports that the greater part of the population have not yet received their 1st dose of vaccine and with the waiting period for the 2nd dose, that will put us over into April at the earliest before most could be vaccinated and have some immunity. We have been told that the necessity of masking will continue for some time. Whatever anyone’s thoughts may be, as a licensed camp, we must be guided by the mandates of ADPH and the Franklin County Health Department.

We will keep you posted. Our prayers are with you. We love each and everyone of you. We will look forward hopefully to seeing you in the Summer.
