BIG SUR All Souls Parish Campout 2020 July 17-19
Join the All Souls community for a relaxed weekend of fellowship and fun! You must register by July 13th to reserve a spot!
Cost: $35 per person for the weekend (children under 5 stay for free; $120 max per family) Note: Santa Lucia has substantially raised their rates, but we are hoping to this keep this weekend affordable for all who are interested. Scholarships are available. Talk to Emily Hansen Curran for more information.
The Santa Lucia Chapel and Campground, a mission of All Saints Parish in Carmel, is a private and secluded campground in the gorgeous Big Sur area. The campground itself is right on the Big Sur River and has a family friendly beach area.
The campground has running water and toilets (but no showers), picnic tables, a group barbecue area and a large campfire circle. This year there will not be a communal dinner to maintain safe conditions due to Covid-19. Please bring all your own food for the weekend. You might also want to bring an addition side table as we will not be able to share tables this year. The weekend will be framed with Evening and Morning prayer, and an informal Sunday service in the outdoor chapel.
Other accommodations for Covid-19 include waivers you will need to sign once you arrive, a cleaning protocol for the bathrooms, genderless bathrooms that instead will be limited to one person/family unit at a time, and some additional sinks outside the bathroom to help with the bathroom use. Please see Jeannie Koops-Elson for more details or for any questions: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Julia Pfeiffer Burns and Andrew Molera are both beautiful state beaches within driving distance for those who want to venture out. Highway 1 through Big Sur has been reopened and the whole coast is accessible again. In general this weekend is a time to relax, play in the river and on the beach—and for the kids to roll in the dirt!
