Canceled-Waterfalls, Wildflowers, and Wineries Weekend 2020
April 3 @ 4:00 pm - April 5 @ 11:00 am$125.00
Dear Friends of Camp Ondessonk,
Camp Ondessonk staff have been closely monitoring COVID-19 recommendations and directives from local public health officials, the Center for Disease Control (CDC), and other trusted advisors. On March 15, 2020, the CDC announced a recommendation for events of 50 or more people in the next eight weeks is canceled or postponed. To learn more, please visit the CDC website at https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/community/large-events/index.html .
Camp Ondessonk has decided to act on this recommendation and cancel all Spring Specialty Weekends where capacity is over 50 people, including the Waterfall, Wildflowers, and Wineries Weekend. Although it is disappointing not to see you this Spring, we believe this is the best decision to keep members of the Ondessonk Community safe and healthy. Should you have additional questions, please contact the Camping Services Director, Nolan Hurst, at 618-695-2489 ext. 116.
There are many impressive waterfalls within a short hike or drive from Camp beyond Pakentuck and Phantom’s Canyon. Learn where these hidden spots are as we tour around Southern Illinois in the Camp bus, stopping at charming local wineries along the way. The floor of the Shawnee Forest will be alive with color as spring wildflowers will be near full bloom. A knowledgeable guide will explain the flowers as we seek falling water. This event is a great weekend for any couple or group of friends looking for a spring getaway. Guests will stay in a private room in the St. Noel Center. All meals on Saturday are provided as well as Breakfast on Sunday. No shirt or additional activities are available. Registration Deadline is March 24th.
