CAMP NOAH FLEECE BLANKETS

Camp Noah is a day camp program for elementary-aged children (grades K-5) that takes place in communities impacted by disasters. The camp works across the United States to help children build resiliency and move forward following disaster or trauma. The camp is currently seeking individuals, church groups, families, businesses, service groups, etc. to make and donate fleece blankets. Each camper receives their own tied fleece blanket, which provides comfort as children process their disaster experience and serves as a lasting reminder of their Camp Noah experience.

WILD GOOSE FESTIVAL

SPIRIT / JUSTICE / MUSIC / ART

Wild Goose is a transformational community grounded in faith-inspired social justice – yet it’s hard to sum it up in just a few words, like: it’s a 4-day Spirit, Justice, Music and Arts Festival. But it’s so much more than that.

It’s a place where all kinds of people come together.

It’s transformational, experiential; it’s a sing and dance and play and talk and listen gathering about beauty, grace, and unpredictability – where all are welcome, meaning ALL.

THE NAMING PROJECT SUMMER CAMP

The story of God’s love is never-ending. When people encounter God, they are changed. They do not remain the people they once were. That change is constant, because we are in constant relationship with God. Come and hear the never-ending story of God’s love for this world and create the never-ending story of your life.

Campers will experience large and small group conversation, personal quiet time as well as campfires, crafts, swimming, games, and summer camp fun in the beauty of God’s creation!

The Naming Project Summer Camp is for 13-18 year-olds (completed 7th-12th grades) who are of any sexual orientation or gender identity or expression who are interested in discussing and understanding sexuality and gender in terms of their own spiritual journey and are excited to spend time with other teen campers an staff while canoeing, swimming, hiking, singing, doing arts and crafts.
