It’s no surprise that kids love camp! This year we offered more options than ever before, including a Swim Camp at Rhodes Grove, a Day Camp led by Chambersburg BIC Church’s youth group, and several weeklong overnight camps at CRC, Cove Valley, and Camp Joy El. But this year we also made a special effort to go to camp with kids!
Three NETwork families and Denise and Gary Williamson participated in Cove Valley’s Family Camp together. Moms dared the high ropes course and the holey canoe race. Kids who had been to camp before made sure they introduced NETwork’s new kids to all their old camp buddies and fun camp activities. NETwork families shared childcare, transportation, and a great time together!
At the end of July, nine FLAVA teens went with Tasha and Ben to Ligonier Camp, near Pittsburgh. It was a week of growing closer to God and each other. Students were chal- lenged to face their fears as they climbed into the trees, participating in the high ropes courses. Our NETwork students also won the competition for scripture memorization, memorizing a passage from Hebrews.
Total, over 50 kids participated in camping ministries through NETwork this summer. We want to especially thank those who helped to sponsor these youth!
