On top of Mountains –
Summer Camp at St. James’ 2019.

Where cardboard boxes become mountains
and building blocks,
Where glass jars make lanterns,
Where rocks make pets and tell stories,
Where old friends and new meet up,
Where a little faith can move mountains,
And where adults and children are all beloved Children of God.

Some comments from kids and volunteers about this year’s summer camp:

Camp was really, really, really fun!!! My favorite part was making the labyrinth out of clay and choosing my own colors. We were free to choose our favorites so every person could make what they liked the best. Mine was Gryffindor colors. I also liked that my friends were at camp. I was excited to play with them, especially building the box fort on the hot day!

Camp was fun! My favorite part was making the protein bar. It was the best because we got to bring them home and eat them. We also got to build with clay and paint rocks lots of colors.

Paxton

I loved the engagement and involvement of each and every child in different activities that we did all day long. My children have been singing at home after the summer camp.

The youth volunteers were such a pleasure to team with…courteous, fun and they offered great suggestions with snack arrangements and food handouts. They assisted the VBS campers with clean up after snacks and crafts, and demonstrated the importance of recycling and keeping the church grounds clean. A bucketful of thanks and smiles to them.

I have volunteered for all 9 years of Summer Camp. It has been amazing to see the growth of the children-how tall and grown up they have become. It is also amazing to see the excellent planning and thoughts that go into making this week a huge success. A success not only for the children but for the volunteers, young and “advanced” in age! I have loved every year and am looking forward to next year.

Thank you to everyone who is part of summer camp, from the ideas, the gathering of supplies, the paperwork, the prayers, the parents, volunteers and kids. The success of camp comes from the combination of all these parts, and more.
