Family Camp 3, July 27 – August 2

We welcomed 11 families for our third week of family camp this summer! Our speakers this week were Phil Staurseth, the Senior Pastor at Ravenswood Covenant, and Trevor Nicholas who together incorporated very funny skits and engaging stories to help us learn more about what it means to be in community and live more like Jesus! We had a wonderful week of excursions, Braveheart & Narnia, a trip to the Island, sleepovers in Yurts and even some time sharing families talents in our Open Mic night!

2013 ASD Camp

The first ever ASD Camp (Autism Spectrum Disorder) , August 6-10, was a great success for families and staff. There were seven families from the Midwest Conference participating along with a health officer family and speaker of the week, Steve Burger, who is director of adult, children, family inter generational ministries with the Department of Christian Formation.  Programming mirrored other family camp weeks offering a wide arrange of activities. Time was spent on the island doing the Tarzan Swing, climbing the high ropes course called Track N Trail, playing big group games like BraveHeart, having time in arts n crafts and waterfront, going to interactive chapel time and singing, and having a prayer of blessing with counselors and staff. Expressions of appreciation and thanksgiving for this week were shared by parents, siblings and staff.

Enjoy some of the comments that were spoken or written from time at ASD camp:

This was a wonderful experience for our WHOLE family! I am so glad the counselors, these young people, got to go beyond their fear of special needs/autism and just see these children for who they all are cherished children of God.

ASD Family camp gave many families permission to try camp and also provide an environment where we did not have to explain our families.

By the end of the week, there was just so much joy.   Afterward some of the parents said if the camp is held next year, “We are definitely coming back.”

I think the camp gave people an opportunity to experience something that they wouldn’t otherwise have and to celebrate the gifts that we all are.

I know so many families like ours who need this camp experience!!
