  • Response to Corona Virus (COVID-19) as of 17th March 2020

    Teen Ranch is currently following directives and advice from The Australian Government , NSW Health, NSW Department of Education and CVA (Christian Venues Association) regarding COVID-19.  
     

    Many would be aware that things have shifted quickly in the last couple of days on all fronts and schools are of no exception. On the 15thof  March the NSW Department of Education (DoE) set down a list of directives to limit the impact of COVID-19 in schools. 
     

    DoE secretary Mark Scott said schools would adopt social distancing measures requiring them to cancel assemblies, substantial gatherings, excursions, travel, inter-school arts, sports, initiative activities, some events and conferences.


    Further schools have also been asked to cancel all overnight excursions and school camps until further notice, as such from the 16thof March 2020 we are not expecting any remaining school camps that were booked for this Term 1, 2020.  

    Teen Ranch has always maintained a high standard of care for our clients health and safety, as such we believe we have a duty of care to the students, teachers, campers who visit us as well as our, staff and entire community to reduce the further spread of COVID-19 and its impact. 

    Taking this all into account we have made the decision to adopt a similar policy to schools in regards to camps/ overnight stay/ Social Distancing and will no longer be in operation for Term 1 until further notice. 
     

    Unfortunately this means that our upcoming Weekend Bookings and April School holiday camps will also be canceled, we understand this is disappointing for many but believe it is the sensible stance to take and hope that we will be up and running once the COVID-19 environment is much more stable and under control.  
     

    Our prayers are with you all as we take on these new set of challenges and we look forward to connecting  back soon!  

    We will keep you all updated via our webpage/facebook as to any changes to our operation and of course feel free to give us a call if need be regarding future bookings or any clarification.

     

    God Bless,

    Rohan and Julie (Resident Directors), Adam and Rachel (Managers) and The Teen Ranch Team.
