Family Camp

 

After years of parents saying "I wish I could go to camp too!" we are finally making it happen.  Be a part of our inaugural Family Camp this summer and join our kids in the fun and creating a new tradition!  The camp is open to all families, all ages, all communities.  Our aim is to create the old-fashioned feeling of camp together with families, cheesy skits around a fire, experiencing new activities all-together, goofy songs, and meals together.   FAMILIES TOGETHER is our true goal.

Saturday, July 20th
