New Dates and Location for Senior Camp
June 28-July 3
Open to students entering grades 9-12 (in fall of 2015)
We look forward to wide participation in our diocesan camp program, but last month I started hearing from students about not being able to attend camp in August, because of band and sports taking up weeks in that month. Over 45 people replied to my recent survey for the dates of senior camp. We learned that the last week in June worked for the majority of people. I wish that we could accommodate everyone's preference. We are, however, still holding CIT and LIT in August, so high school students have another opportunity to attend if they can't be with us in June.
We will also be holding this camp at a different site - Cran-Hill Ranch will be our host. We'll still have all of our normal activities, along with a few new ones (they have a frisbee golf course and a few other new things!).
Camp this week will end Friday, July 3 - with a 4:00 pm check-out. We're doing this because we guess that many people will be going away for the weekend and we don't want this to compete. We will work diligently to make sure some of our revered traditions will continue while we accommodate a new site and schedule.
I know that change is difficult (and scary, and upsetting), but it also can be fun and exciting. Those who've been to senior camp know that they can have a lot of say about what we do and you can make it great - this year we'll be no different! The site has big playing fields, cabins with heated floors and facilities in the same building, and we'll be able to have camp fires, a tubing trip and ropes course activity (and may even be able to go on a horseback riding trail ride).
