Greetings Campers, Guests, Neighbors and Friends.
The South Queensland Conference of the Seventh-day Adventist Church who owns and Operates Camp Somerset, initiated the Crisis Management Team (CMT) in concern around current circumstances relating to the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) and of serious concern to us both in terms of the health and welfare of our staff, the individuals intending to hire our facilities as well as the community to which we are a part of and serve.
The CMT is very conscious of the impact of such decisions, but they needed to respond quickly to a rapidly changing serious community health crisis and so have taken the decision to direct the CLOSURE of Camp Somerset and Waterfront Camping Areas, this has been in effect from the 16th March through till at least Stage Two of the Queensland Government's road map out of the COVID-19 Crisis. The closure will be reviewed following the implementation/activation of Stage Two by the Queensland Government which expected Mid-June
Thank you also for your support and co-operation at this difficult time and we apologise for the unavoidable inconvenience. If you have a booking which falls within this period – please email or call the office to confirm your wishes as to whether a transfer of your booking later in the year is possible or to organise your full refund.
While there will be staff onsite everyday each week, our Office hours will be reduced as we scale back staffing during this period and is anticipated to be 8am – 4pm Monday, Wednesday and Friday at this early stage but this may vary depending on operations. Stay tuned for updates as they become available.
We continue to pray for God’s leading and protection and we know He will remain with us all at this challenging time.
