COVID-19 Update

Through prayer, research and deliberation the PYV Council has decided to cancel our plans to run West Camp (March 28th-30th) at Norval Lodge in Halls Gap.

As of today Australians have been asked to cancel non-essential gatherings of more than 100 people in an effort to reduce the risk of COVID-19 exposure. The planned West Camp is a gathering that fits this description with an anticipated attendance of 117 (campers, leaders, helpers etc.) PYV now must heed this direction to reduce the possible spreading of COVID-19.

Before the Government ban today the Council had been working and wrestling with the decision to cancel West Camp. This has been a difficult choice to make because of the significance of PYV camps in our lives and the blessing we know God can use it to have on others. We trust that the Lord is at work through these challenging and unplanned circumstances and we anticipate much good can come through all of this. Although we can’t physically meet for West Camp this year we are exploring with our team what a West Camp online experience could be like to offer during March 28th-30th weekend. Pray for us as we still seek to minister in the coming days.

If you have made a payment in part or in full towards camp fees we will reimburse you this amount. Please be patient with us as we process these return payments.

If you have questions please don’t hesitate to contact the PYV Office by phone on 0434 198 156 or email Thank you.
