Camping

It seems like only yesterday I was announcing the opening camp of our summer season when Kids' Camp assembled at the end of June! Now, here we are at Senior High camp, now on at Camp Noronto.

Alfredo Zelaya and his awesome team of leaders, leaders in training and campers are closing out the official summer camping season this week. We can only wait for the tales of their adventure.

Or we can reminisce about times past when we've been campers. I never fail to hear stories of "good old camping days gone by" when I'm with some people around the Mission. Campers of all ages. Recent visits with Rod McLean, Doug Bolger, John and Elaine Morgan as well as Eric Horning and Justin and Dara Ashwell have all had healthy injections of the camping experience. Take a minute and recall your own.

Of course, camping ministry continues through September as we look forward to Family and Friends (Erie Beach, September 11-13), Women's Retreat (Ziontario, September 18-20), Canoe Camp (northern rivers, September 25-27), Men's Retreat (McGowan's Lake, September 25-27). And if you've still not had enough, Retirees' Retreat (Camp Noronto, October 5-9)!

Check the CEM Calendar or Announcements for contact and registration information for all these events. Word on the street is that summer weather will be extended this year due to a late launch, so do plan to enjoy one or more of these great opportunities for fellowship and community building.
