(VISION CAMP 2020/Update 7/7) - Virtual Meeting Due to Covid-19
Period : 07-28 ~ 08-04-2020
Dear Vision Camp Friends,
I am pleased to announce that we will be holding a virtual Vision Camp Series with registration opening on Sunday, July 12 at 0900 EST (2200 Korea Time). The Vision Camp Series will be an opportunity for anyone between (roughly) the ages of 16 to 24 to register for online session(s) tailored around specific topics. Unlike a normal conference, you will have the opportunity to register for and attend only the topics that specifically interest you! Based on feedback from you through conversations and survey responses, we will be offering a menu of topics that we know are of interest to you. You will be able to choose from any number of topics which may include, but are not limited to, dating/marriage; social justice; biblical counseling; and being a Godly man/woman, just to name a few.
During this time of social distancing, it's more important than ever to stay engaged and persevere in seeking God's vision for your life. Social distancing doesn't mean we have to be alone or unproductive or unmotivated. COVID-19 may have canceled our physical camp in Toronto, but the goal of Vision Camp can't be stopped. As has been true with Vision Camps in the past, we cordially invite you to more times of "faith, fellowship, and fun." That means offering topics that are timely and relevant to your life and faith. That means most of your online sessions will be limited in size which we hope will allow for more interaction, discussion, and true fellowship. That means honest conversations that are always the most interesting and fun!
Registration will go live at visioncampubf.org on Sunday, July 12 at 0900 EST / 1400 London Time / 2200 Korea Time and will close on Monday, July 20 at 0900 EST. As noted above, spaces will be limited so we encourage you to register early. The registration page will include the session topic, speaker info, language (English/Korean), and proposed dates/times. This way you can have all the information you need to make sure it fits into your schedule and register accordingly. The Vision Camp Series will likely run from late July to mid-September. We aim to hold most sessions on the weekends to accommodate participants from different time zones so we welcome everyone from around the world! And we will continue to update the registration page as new offerings become available. That includes a virtual Town Hall with UBF General Director, Pastor Moses Yoon, in late August (more details to follow). I hope all of you will join us for that!
In closing, I am excited for the possibilities that this new format affords us. I am grateful that our global Vision Camp community can stay connected and even grow together during this time of unprecedented challenges. I am hopeful you will come and join us to seek God's vision for your life. Thank you to everyone who filled out surveys; helped me with planning; prayed for and supported Vision Camp; and offered to lead a session. I am truly humbled by all of you.
If you have any questions, please reach out to me directly. Keep calm, pray, and wash your hands. God bless you!
Vision Camp Director

Greetings to all Vision Camp members and friends,
I hope you are all doing well and staying safe. My family and I recently went on 24-hour lockdown for the rest of this month. Which means LOTS of time together. Please pray for us to spend this time serving and loving each other.
As for Vision Camp 2020, I am writing today to inform everyone that unfortunately we will have to cancel this year's camp in Toronto. Mohawk College officially informed us that their campus will be closed to activities through the summer. In addition, uncertainty around when things would return to normal made planning and preparing nearly impossible. Let me express my deeply felt gratitude and thanks to everyone for their continuing prayers and support for Vision Camp 2020. That includes Canadian coworkers, UBF World Mission department, coworkers around the world, and of course all of you!
Though we are unable to meet in person, we remain committed to providing an environment to support and encourage all of our next gen leaders. As such, we are open to trying to meet virtually to stay connected and find ways to fellowship together in this surreal environment of social distancing. With this goal in mind, we have provided a link to a short survey below. This survey will help us understand your needs and inform how we might setup a virtual Vision Camp. Virtual Vision Camp might include messages, or seminars, or whatever form you might suggest. This is an opportunity for you to weigh in on shaping this new virtual platform for Vision Camp and its members. We want to make this something that you feel would be beneficial to you and you could feel excited about (even if we can't do so in person!)
Please click on the link below to take the survey.
I look forward to hearing from all of you. Also, please feel free to forward this message to others who may be interested in participating virtually. As always, you can also email me directly with your thoughts or with updates on how you are doing.
Keep calm, pray, and wash your hands!
Registration opens for all young people from the ages of 16 to 24 years of age who are serious about pursuing God's vision for their lives. If you are looking to grow and mature, or simply experience God through fun fellowship with other like-minded next gens from around the world, please visit us at visioncampubf.org. Registration officially opens through our website on March 1 at 9:00am EST. We hope to see you at Vision Camp 2020! If you have any questions, you can also email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
