*Cancelled* DB Outreach National Event at CedarS Camps
Sep 4 – Sep 7 all-day

the DB National Event at CedarS camps has been cancelled for 2020


After much discussion, evaluation, and humble prayer, we have decided to not proceed with the in-person event at this time. This was not an easy discussion for the DB Outreach and Compass team, and we spent many meetings evaluating our options, but ultimately, we feel this is the right decision. A few of the reasons behind this decision include concerns about travel, group lodging, large group gatherings, and the hindrance on the way we would want to run this event with regard to Christian Science.
We are so grateful for the support of the CedarS staff in making this decision.  They understand this is a very different year for everyone, and fully support our reasoning. We are considering the possibility of partnering together for this event in an upcoming year. 
The Outreach team is already exploring other options for how to reach teens and adults this fall in a meaningful, fun, and inspiring way to take the place of the National Event this year.  We encourage you to check back here soon to see what kind of regional activities are available!

WHO:

Teens: 8th–12th grade (2020-2021 school year) Christian Scientists and your friends of all faiths.

Adults: Christian Science adults and friends

When:

TBA

CANCELLATION POLICY:

DiscoveryBound has cancelled this in-person event, so all registrants will receive a 100% refund of their deposit and payments towards registration costs.  These refunds will be completed by July 10th.
