  • Things to keep in mind for this week of faith & fun:

    1. Each camper needs to bring a bagged lunch, water bottle, sunblock, & bug spray each day.
    2. Pack a plain white t-shirt for each camper on Monday. We will be using these for crafts later in the week!
    3. Thursday will be a Family Dinner & Program at St. Paul. More details will be announced as we get closer.
    4. Friday is water day. Bring a bathing suit (or wear it under your clothes), pack a towel, & wear tennis shoes that day.
    5. We will be communicating additional information & updates via email. Please make sure to check your email for these updates before and during camp!
  • We will have several opportunities for volunteers to help before and during our week of camp. Opportunities will be announced over the coming months.
