2021 Camp Dates are listed below
Camp Noah (K-2nd Grade) July 6-9, 2021
Camp Noah is a day camp for children who have just completed Kindergarten, First, or Second grades. Bus transportation is provided each day (Tuesday through Friday in 2021) from St. John’s Church, Sunnyway Foods on LWW or Milky Way Restaurant in Fort Loudon. Upon arrival at the camp the group will meet in a circle to hear the plans and expectations for the day. They will then proceed to the Wildwood Chapel to have a talk around a chosen Bible Verse and then on to the ball field for some games and exercise. This will be followed by a Life Learning experience, this year based on learning more about the TREES that God has made for us in this Nature setting. The kids will then have a chance to be creative making a craft project around the theme of trees. Next comes lunch which in 2021 will be a bagged lunch brought by the camper. Following lunch is a “God Talk”, a lesson about our many blessings. Then comes a ride up to Cowan’s Gap Lake for a time of play and swimming. After returning to camp there will be a snack and a story time and return back to Chambersburg, with tired but happy campers.
