Fall and Winter 2020

It was the best of times; it was the worst of times – actually, it seems nobody knows exactly what time it is…

Whatever else it is, it is a time of change with new norms and everyone looking for a way to move forward, as safely as possible. For Tulakogee it has been and continues to be a time of newness. New people, new processes, new directions, deeper dependence, and mountain moving levels of faith – not all bad; certainly not all fun.

The enjoyment and confidence people have for getting together continues to be impacted by Covid-19. As a Board and Staff, desiring to be sensitive to that impact and good stewards of the resources we are entrusted to manage, Tulakogee Conference Center is going to do what it has never done in its 50 plus year history. We are going to let the camp rest this fall and early winter and see where these next months take the world we all live in. We are right now in the process of sanitizing, winterizing, and closing our campus by the end of August. All fall activities and groups have either been cancelled or rescheduled into next year.

What will we do during this season of quiet? That will be determined by several factors. Be assured there are many projects that would benefit the camp, both in refresh and complete rebuild possibilities. There are also numerous new ideas (excitingly new ideas) waiting for available resources to set them in motion. Our bank has partnered with us to help in this time of no guest income, but the utility and insurance meters still tick.

We’ll keep you posted as things develop. Pray for our Board and Advisory Council, and thank you for walking with us as we step up to more mountains…

Your Board, Advisory Council, & Staff
