July 25 - July 31
“Away Camp” is a life-changing experience for children. We are taking a crew from GUMC to Lakeshore for a week of fun and fellowship. If you are interested in attending this week, please register through Lakeshore’s Website (https://lakeshorecamp.org) and then drop an email to middle school director Lisa Pierce (firstname.lastname@example.org) or elementary director Callie Beaver (email@example.com) so we can coordinate this trip together. Our youth ministry team, Lisa Pierce and Brian Richards, will be staying the week as camp deans of Elementary Camp #4. There is also a Jr. High Camp #3 that same week for any students who have completed grades 5-8 (must be 12 years old). Of course, we will be needing high school counselors who would like to work with us this week! If you have not trained as a Lakeshore counselor but are interested in participating in this way, there is a final counselor training event the weekend of April 9-11, 2021. If you absolutely cannot train this weekend, please contact Lisa Pierce for a potential alternative.
Lakeshore has an abundance of opportunities for all campers; there are a variety of camps offered all summer long! There are camps for people with special needs, as well as camps for people who have suffered traumatic experiences. There is a camp for people who love to fish, a camp for people who love aquatics, a camp for the arts, and a camp for those who love living in the wilderness. There is even a camp for people who love board games! There is a camp for everyone, so go to their website and take a peek.
If you ARE interested in participating the week of July 25, we encourage you to register as soon as possible. This week of camp fills up quickly. Lakeshore has a limited number of available spaces to reduce the risk of Covid spread, so it is essential to register early.
