2021 Camp Dates are listed below
Camp Noah (K-2nd Grade) July 5-9
Camp Noah is a day camp for children who have just completed Kindergarten, First grade or Second grade. Bus transportation is provided each day from St. John’s United Church of Christ, 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 followed by 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 coming back to camp there will be a snack and a story time and return back to Chambersburg, with tired but happy campers.
Camp Galilee (Grades 6-8) July 11-16
After successfully reestablishing our camp for middle school aged campers, Camp Galilee is adding more activities to the 2020 season. Camp Galilee is an overnight camp. This year the Friday trip will be to Lake Raystown for a cruise of the lake on the Proud Mary Showboat. Other new activities will include a team building exercise morning at the low ropes course at Cove Valley Christian Youth Camp as well as opportunities to paddle boat at Cowen’s Gap and a hike or two around the Gap itself. Campers will have “God Talks” sessions where Bible selections will be developed. Following that there will be “Life Learnings” which will include presentations about science, nature, crafts, and other topics. Other daily activities include games, swimming at Cowan’s Gap, singing, free time, and the Friday day trip. Camper pickup will be at St. John’s at 6:00 pm Friday night to end the week of camp.
