Goodbye Virtual Camp, Hello World
We have wrapped up our first ever virtual camp experience at Camp Marshall. It has been both a challenge, and a blessing. One of our biggest take-aways is that people NEED to feel connected now more than ever. That's how God made us. And so while we are saying goodbye to virtual camp, we are also saying hello to some new programming for ministry in our Diocese. One of those changes is continuing on with our virtual small groups. Beginning in September we will have the following small groups meeting virtually
The links to access those meetings will be on our camp website under Youth Ministry Calendars. Everyone is welcome, we hope to see you there!
*Elementary students will meet the 1st & 3rd Mondays of the month at 5 pm
*Middle & High school students will meet the 2nd & 4th Mondays of the month @ 5 pm
We will ALSO have some virtual workshop weekends and HOPEFULLY an in-person youth gathering in the spring! Keep your eyes peeled!
*Parent Support Small group will meet the 1st & 3rd Wednesdays of the month @ 6 pm
*Young Adult/College (We're real loose on who qualifies as 'young') will meet the 2nd & 4th Wednesdays @ 6 pm.
As we continue to navigate COVID 19 we are making changes that we hope you will be excited about. While traditional programming is currently at a halt we are looking at new ways to serve our Episcopal Families.
THANK YOU for this opportunity. It has been our pleasure to serve you this summer. God bless you, and we hope to see you real soon!
In Christ's Love,
Dave, Janelle, PJ, Connor and Mark
Camp Marshall Update
No 1. Small Groups – we will continue our online meetings with small groups this fall. To see more log into the camps web page and follow the link to Youth Ministry Calendars. There you will find the dates and times for our small groups. Groups include: Elementary, Middle/High School, Young Adult and Parent Support Groups.
No 2. We will soon be publishing how families can rent either Coventry, Canterbury cabins and or bring a trailer to camp to enjoy the property as an individual family. We will have rates and dates available soon for your consideration. Also – we will build into this a way for families to come up just for the day.
No 3. Looking ahead to our fall and winter. We will be hosting two events – one this fall (the weekend of October 9th and 10th) and the other in early winter (January 16th) that will be online. Currently, we are also looking ahead to April 16 – 18 with the hope we will have a vaccine by then and able to have an in-person youth conference.
No. 4 Our last summer project – Our Faith Life Zoom-cast –
We interviewed people around the Diocese about how Covid-19 has been affecting their faith lives, and what that means for the future.
