Camp! We spent a week of day camp learning about growing our whole self for Jesus – including growing our faith, our healthy bodies, our community, our food, and our friendships. We had guest teachers, beautiful crafts, and fun field trips. One of the highlights is that we picked 8 pounds of berries & cherries at the Stoddart Avenue Community Garden to donate to a neighborhood food pantry! We made our own shirts, planted flowers, and had an awesome festival on the last day with a bounce house, dunk tank, and snow cone machine all donated by Buckeye Inflatables.

Special Camp thanks go out:
To Galion Alliance Church – their teens spent the week at the ministry house helping with camp. For some of the students, it was their second or third visit to camp at UC! 
To First English Lutheran Church and the Voisine Family – who provided lunches for our campers! 
To Franklin Park Conservatory – for welcoming us to come and play in the Children’s Garden! 
To the United Way of Central Ohio, The Columbus Foundation, and PNC Bank for selecting us as a recipient of the Neighborhood Partnership Grant to make camp possible! 

We have two needs: people to help out, and a washing machine! If you are interested in helping out this fall (tutoring, cooking, helping with Bible study, painting, yard work, or house repairs), or if you can donate a washing machine, let us know when you’re available! Thanks!
