The weekend of November 7th and 8th, online children of the diocese met at East Bay Camp in Hudson, drugs IL for our first ever fall session of Church camp. Church Camp annually meets for a one week period at the end of June/beginning of July.
The fall edition included inviting adults who are interested in joining the Church Camp family. The adults who attended stayed separately from the children and attended discussions on the importance of the ministry and what it means to be a counselor. 8 adults were a part of the camp.
22 children, mostly first time campers, attended the weekend and saw what we do. Saturday included a scavenger hunt, fall game night with the adults included and indoor swimming. Both adults and children attended mass and were surrounded by the love of Jesus Christ and the fellowship that is a part of camp.
If you are interested in attending, sending children or supporting this ministry, please contact Deacon Jason Bowden for more information. Also, look forward to seeing more articles on fundraising and activities that extend from Church Camp.
In His Name,
