Each year, Church of Christ sponsored camps across the U.S. gather for a workshop. I attended my first workshop 7 years ago and have served on the board ever since. We hosted the workshop in 2011 and this year Maywood hosted. The workshops are packed full of information that relates to Christian camping. Classes are offered on everything from Insurance and Legal advice to summer games and kitchen menus. We look foward to seeing our sister camps next year at Fort Hill Christian Youth Camp in Ohio!
We had a great summer with a total of nine different camp sessions. Twenty-four were baptized into Christ this year (including my daughter) and countless rededications were made. As summer ended we immedately began weekend retreats. As of today, nine retreats and one disc golf tournment will take place between now and Christmas. But I want to share a few pictures from the summer. Since I have just learned how to update this site, I hope to share more throughout the year of what’s happening. Thanks to all who made 2013 one of the best summers yet.
The 2012 Summer Camp season has concluded, and we were blessed to host seven different sessions throughout the months of June and July. Throughout the course of this summer 45 individuals were baptized into Christ over the course of 7 weeks. Once again we are grateful that God used our facilities to touch the lives of hundreds of people, both campers and staff members, who stayed here for only a few days.
