Church Cancels 2020 Treks and Pageants

- Advertisment - Save on Great LDS Gifts

The following notice was sent Thursday, April 30, 2020, to leaders of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saint worldwide. Also see other ways COVID-19 is impacting Church members around the globe.

Due to the ongoing impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, Church recreational properties in the United States and Canada used for youth camps and conferences are closed until further notice. In addition, all treks and Church pageants are canceled for 2020.

Ward and Stake Camps and Youth Conferences

As directed by the First Presidency and Quorum of the Twelve Apostles, all public gatherings of Church members are suspended worldwide until further notice. This includes Aaronic Priesthood quorum camp, Young Women camp, and other overnight youth conferences. If customary camps and conferences are not held, local leaders may want to consider technology-based experiences that would provide youth with fun and meaningful opportunities to connect with one another.

When the First Presidency and Quorum of the Twelve Apostles approve gatherings, local priesthood and Young Women leaders may organize youth conference activities at Church meetinghouses. If overnight youth camps and conferences are desired, Church-owned facilities, where available, should be used before considering non-Church properties. Guidelines for such activities will be provided at the time restrictions are lifted. Leaders should not plan treks for 2020.
