|Dear Christ Church,
Did you go to summer camp as a kid? I actually didn’t, but friends of mine still talk about it years later as this magical place where you gain celebrity status and anything can happen. That super quiet guy with the shaggy hair is your future husband or that kid you went off the rope swing with 100 times leads you into a deeper knowledge of Jesus.
Camp, I’ve surmised, gives a lot of people vision for dynamic shared life. Maybe their families didn’t model that for whatever reason, but the experience of eating, sleeping, playing, risking and worshiping together for days on end changes kids.
The week of June 19, we’re doing a much lower-key version of summer camp down the street! Santa Rita Courts, a public housing community near our Medina property, has graciously agreed to let us use their clubhouse to host an art & enrichment camp for kids who live there. We’re pumped to get to know our neighbors and volunteers are preparing workshops in art, storytelling, math, and drama.
