The Merom Board of Directors is closely watching the COVID-19 metrics put forth by the state of Indiana in order to determine when it is safe to host in-person events.
For in-person retreats and camps to occur, Indiana must be in the yellow level put forth by the governor for a minimum of 4 weeks.
If the in-person retreat or camp includes campers from states other than Indiana, those states must also be in the yellow level for a minimum of 4 weeks.
When in-person events occur, all recommendations put forth by the government will be followed including wearing of masks and social distancing.
The Merom Board will continue to monitor the state levels and reserves the right to cancel events when cases rise to the orange or red levels or recommendations from the government prevent in-person events.
Many events will have the option of virtual attendance.
catch the merom spirit!
Our lunch program is on pause for now. Check back soon as we hope to upgrade our safety procedures to continue to host lunches
Nestled on the Indiana - Illinois border south of Terre Haute, is the Merom Camp and Retreat center. Each year we host multiple summer camps, retreats, meetings, reunions, weddings and much more. Here, we help kids of all ages (yes, adults too) learn to explore their faith through many ways including outdoor activities, stage production, reflection, worship, food, fun and fellowship. Come see our beautiful, over 150 year old College Hall, worship in an outdoor worship center or the chapel, play some basketball in the gym, swim in our pool, climb on the high ropes course and much more. Won't you join us?
