Family Camp 2014
We are pleased to announce that Family Camp is returning to the Fall! Mark your calendars for October 10-12, 2014. We look forward to sunshine and colorful trees! As you may have heard, we have a new location due to the increased activity of the Lutheran churches at Camp Wapo. It was not our intent to leave; however, God has lead us to a beautiful new location about the same distance, but west: Camp Courage in Annandale, MN. It is about 1 hour and 10 minutes from St. Mary’s Greek Orthodox Church. We have room to grow there and they have wonderful facilities for us to share: indoor swimming pool, gym, miniature golf, lake, full sports fields, outdoor basketball courts and nice cabins that will accommodate families with private bathrooms.
Our family camp task force is already busy planning what we know will be a blessed weekend! Because Camp Courage is a handicap accessible camp, spread the word to those who may appreciate these accommodations that may have hesitated to come in the past. I have included a link below so you can look around!
We ask you to put this date on your calendar in ink and think about those people you wish would have come in the past. Invite them today and have them guard this weekend as well. It is always a beautiful time to share with friends and family…an extension of camp for the kids and a place to build and renew meaningful relationships with other Orthodox families desiring to strengthen their bonds to Christ.
Remember, family camp is for everyone…grandparents, Godparents, families without kids, singles, empty nesters!
See you at Family Camp!
We need your support
