I like to multi-task. I can focus on a task and be aware of something else like music or the news on television, running in the background. Last week the news was sharing stories on summer camp and what it will/could/should look like this summer. It brought back such good memories!
I grew up in the San Francisco Bay area and for many summers attended Mt. Cross Lutheran Bible Camp in the Santa Cruz Mountains. What a blast! I have nothing but lovely memories of swimming, hiking, amazing camp food (it was! Or maybe we were just ravenous with all the activities and fresh air?), campfires, singing, crafts and of course, friends.
This summer, our entire congregation has an opportunity to spend time at our own camp: Lutherhaven. Carley has worked tirelessly with the staff at Lutherhaven to provide a wonderful camp experience for all of us: not just kiddos and families! There are so many opportunities for fellowship and fun that this is an experience you won’t want to miss!
Our camp runs from August 11th through the 13th. Carley has created an easy-to-use registration form that you’ll find here. Once completed, Carley will contact you to work out details since there are multiple experience options that she can review with you.
Did you attend summer camp? If you think about that time, what memories bubble up? Peace. Quiet. Serenity. Do any of these feelings come to mind? I hope so!
Especially in these very odd times we’re living in, in remembering, think on this:
Psalm 77:11-14 “I will remember the deeds of the LORD; yes, I will remember your miracles of long ago. 12 I will consider all your works and meditate on all your mighty deeds. 13 Your ways, God, are holy. What god is as great as our God? 14 You are the God who performs miracles; you display your power among the peoples.”
