Special Touch Ministry is committed to the health and well-being of all participants in our programs. We are closely monitoring and responding to the global COVID-19 (coronavirus) outbreak. All decisions that may affect any Special Touch event will be made and communicated in context with the public status of the pandemic at that time and with informed wisdom.

Due to recent concerns related to the spread of this pandemic, some upcoming Special Touch Chapter and local fundraising events have been temporarily postponed. Please contact the local Chapter and/or fundraising event host to find out if activities have been postponed in your area and for any information on rescheduled dates.

We are planning for a full and exciting season of camping. At this time, we fully expect this global crisis to pass before the Special Touch Summer Get Away season begins. However, we will assess the situation as the calendar moves along and keep you informed electronically (website, email, and Facebook) in the event that the Special Touch National Office is forced to cancel any Summer Get Aways.

As we prepare for the summer season, we will add to our already rigorous health and safety protocols as necessary. As always, we are committed to observing best health practices when holding gatherings including encouraging hand washing, asking anyone with concerning symptoms or known contact with an infectious disease to stay home, etc.

Thank you.

UPDATE MONDAY, MARCH 24, 2020: In order to help slow the spread of the Coronavirus, Covid19, we have temporarily closed our offices in Waupaca, Wisconsin, with the plan to reopen as the climate surrounding this pandemic improves.

On a National Level, we have no plans to cancel anything at this time, if that changes we will contact those who have registered for these events. Will will be communicating additional ministry information through our Facebook page and by our email newsletter.

If you need to contact us during this time we will be randomly checking the ministry@specialtouch.org email. Thank you.

UPDATE WEDNESDAY, APRIL 1, 2020: As the Covid-19 climate has forced us to prioritize our health and therefore shelter in place, we have unfortunately been forced to make the decision to cancel both the Oklahoma & Florida Summer Get Aways for 2020.

We will be issuing a full refund. If you paid through CampDoc, we will be reversing the payments to that credit card. If you paid by check that will be mailed out as soon as possible.

We thank you for your understanding. Please watch the Special Touch Ministry, Inc. Facebook page or sign up for our email newsletter for ongoing information, activities and tips to get us all through this time.

At this time, all other Summer Get Away programs are still on schedule.
