Spring is Springing & Outdoor Ed Groups are Coming

We have been taking advantage of Spring’s early arrival this year.  With the ground fully thawed, trees in bloom, and the grass growing greener by the day, we’re eager to share our lake and surrounding forest with Purdue University, whose forestry, fisheries, and wildlife students arrive this Saturday for five weeks of field education. We’re also excited to be welcoming a number of area school groups who will be coming to learn about nature through Rockin’ Robins, a part of our Agents of the Earth outdoor education program.

Below is a picture from the Foster City Covenant Church confirmation class that came for low and high ropes team-building activities last weekend.

“The confirmands totally loved Saturday at CP. All of them were tired, and I’ve heard back that one of the girls who is not going to camp this year already told one of her cousins that BOTH of them [will be] going next year. . . Thank you to the staff [Trevor, Kevin, and Paul especially] for a great experience. We hope that they can continue to make gains in their faith for a long time to come from this.” – Pastor Carl Hammer

Look closely at the photo of the new directors home below.  Do you notice something strange? Right now, flooring/carpet is in, shelves are up, and cabinets should be installed by the end of the week.  The Chuck Frasier Memorial Campaign is nearly 75% of the way to its $600,000 goal! Check out the website link to learn more about the goals of the campaign and how you can join this special effort.

Lastly, we had our latest donation from our Wish List Page to purchase extra backpacking medical kits for our growing trips program!  A long time Friend of Covenant Point got excited about donating the funds to purchase these new medical kits, and we are very thankful for God’s provision, and the partnership that we have with so many friends in ministry.  The medical kits will serve us well in keeping campers safe while out on our summer wilderness trips!
