DAVIS, Oklahoma -

Oklahoma Baptist leaders announced the summer 2020 camp season at Falls Creek is canceled due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Falls Creek Youth Camp and CrossTimbers Children's Mission Adventure Camp will not hold any camp sessions during the summer.

“With a heavy heart, and after extensive consultation with pastors, lay leaders and information from public health ocials, we have made the dicult decision to cancel all Falls Creek and CrossTimbers-Davis and CrossTimbers-Grand Lake sessions for 2020,” said Hance Dilbeck, executive director-treasurer with Oklahoma Baptists.

Plans for Indian Falls Creek and LifeWay Collegiate Week, which were previously scheduled for late July and early August, also were canceled.

The alternate summer outreach plans will be unveiled in early June.

Falls Creek was established in 1917 and is near Davis, Oklahoma. The summer camp sessions have only been canceled three times before in 1943, 1944 and 1945. The 1943 session was canceled due to a poliomyelitis outbreak and the 1944 and 1945 sessions were canceled due to World War II-related factors.
