Mission as Faith and Justice at Manidokan Camp & Retreat Center
June 27 - July 2 (Rising 6th Graders - Graduating Seniors)
Sign up for this adventure-based camp to get a taste of Mission as Faith and Justice. After a playful start with teambuilding, campers will put their team to the test and complete 16-20 hours of hands-on mission projects around the topics of housing, food scarcity, our environment, and systemic racism, with plans for on and off-site projects. Ziplining, rafting, water games and campfire cooking will also be a part of the week. Small group time will help campers process why/how we as Christians serve others and what that has to do with faithful living. BUMC high schoolers that attend will serve as Team Leaders within the camp! Manidokan is located near Harper’s Ferry. Sign ups start on Monday, Feb 8th. Middle Schoolers (rising 6th-8th grade) will receive a link in your email to sign up. High School Students who want to be part of the camp will need to contact Rev. Scott directly with your name and Date of Birth. If you're interested or have questions please contact Rev. Scott.
Regarding COVID: Please see Manidokan's Website for more info about their current plan. More information will come soon, as the MD Governor's Office announces their plan and requirements for summer camps.
