Come spend Memorial Day Weekend with us for FREE as we serve the camp!
WHO: ALL AGES!
DATES: MAY 27-30TH, 2016
COST: FREE LODGING! WITH VERY REASONABLE FOOD RATES AVAILABLE FROM THE SNACK SHOP!
If you are looking for a way to contribute to what God does at Denton Camp, Serve Camp is your chance!
Each year we gather together as a community of campers to support this great ministry by picking up shovels, paintbrushes, hammers, and all kinds of tools to repair and restore our campus from the harsh winter. We have held work days for generations and it's amazing what can be accomplished when we pull together! As always, we hope that your time with us is not just work - but rather a great time to get to know others, spend time with family and friends.
This year, let's do all that and get away from the busyness of life for a couple days! Come spend Memorial Day with us! While we aim to accomplish much - we also will have a lot of fun! Don’t miss out on this opportunity to make a difference in the lives of campers by helping us keep this an awesome place to meet God!
TIME: Serve Camp is a really flexible event. We want most people to be there on or around 5-7 pm on Friday - though you can come later or even arrive on Saturday. We hope you can stay the whole time and enjoy the fellowship, but even if you can only come for the work day on Saturday, that's ok!
HOW IT WORKS: Saturday will be our work day. We will have a project command center describing various tasks to pick from. You can pick what interests you most and pair up in teams to get to it! There are even projects the whole family can help with! Sunday, we will have a worship service and then enjoy some fun family activities! Monday, anything left to be done we will work on until noon and then head home!
CHILDREN: Bring em! We love to have children experience camp and learn to have a heart for service! There is no child-care provided but parents typically just rotate off projects to spend time with their kids.
TEENS: Teenagers who want to attend but their parents don't are welcome but will need to go with a different family, adult or youth group and be under their care for the weekend.
HOUSING/REGISTRATION: If you have a cottage, it's a great time to open it up for the season and use it to stay. Registering is required --this helps give us an idea who is coming and where you would prefer to stay. Registration is online and is really easy or you can call (410) 479-3361.
You can register as late as 1 week before-hand since we have to order food and supplies.
