Grandperson & Me Camp


Category: Regional
Posted by: rblack117

We would like to invite folks in the CRMR to join in a special camp for grandpersons and grandchildren.  It is a unique experience for participants, and something your church members would like.  Please make the invitation info available to your members.  It’s a short 2 night camp at the end of June.

Grandperson & Me camp is designed to strengthen the special relationship between grandparents/grandparent surrogates and their grandchildren. Fun and discovery are around each corner as we explore nature, encounter God, and work on craft projects together. Worship, playtime, swimming, and campfires round out this unique inter generational camp. Don’t miss this amazing opportunity for inter generational connection and bonding June 28-30! We invite parents to register their children ages 5 to 11 for this transformational weekend at https://rmcucc.org/home/camps-events/. Click on the Grandpersons and Me box to register. Registrations are due by June 14, 2019.

Our co-directors this year are Corina Hurst and Sue Johns. Corina is a Colorado native and has lived in the Springs since 2015. Corina is passionate about authentic, relational ministry with all ages, and finding creative ways to experience worship in community. Corina also loves outdoor ministry and has counseled many weekend retreats for youth. She is especially excited about the inter generational nature of Grandpersons & Me Camp! Sue Johns is thrilled to be a part of Grandparent Camp this year too! She attended this camp in past years with each of her grandchildren, and it was as wonderful an experience for them as it was for her. They created lifelong memories. Sue trained in Early Childhood Education, worked with the Denver Public Schools, the YMCA and is now a Faith Development leader at Lakewood United Church of Christ. She loves La Foret and has enjoyed every one of the many camps she has attended.

This is a cool inter generational opportunity!
