Online Camp Connection

Many of you gathered together for our revived Church Camp Weekend this past fall at Brethren Woods. Like many other businesses and ministries, they have had to cancel in-person events for the summer, including summer camp. While there’s no replacement for canoeing or swimming or hiking or giggly late-night storytelling, they are trying to provide some of the activities that make camp so much fun!

From June 7 – July 24, Brethren Woods is offering a free (FREE!) program they’re calling “Watz in the Woods.” There will be a weekly scripture theme from the “This is our Prayer” curriculum with activities posted each day. If you’d like to connect to find out what a Zoom campfire looks like, there’s one each Sunday evening. For those wanting to connect with others their age, there’s a Camp Community Gathering each week, divided by age groups (yes, adults, too!) via Zoom. If you really dig it and want to make a donation of $75 or more to the camp, they’ll even send you a 2020 summer camp t-shirt!

Register online for the activities you’d like to try, and get in a little bit of the camp spirit! Even if you’ve never been to Brethren Woods, this is a neat opportunity to try it out (without as many bugbites). If you think your friend or neighbor or second cousin once removed would enjoy it, invite them to join you! To register, visit brethrenwoods.org/dsc. For more information visit the website, send them an email (camp@brethrenwoods.org), or give the camp office a call (540-269-2741).
