This is an opportunity for the West Side Middle School group to gather together in one location without the distractions of everyday life. The purpose is to build friendships and explore basic spirituality. The students will have times for games and hang out, as well as quiet time in spiritual development. On Saturday we will spend a few hours on a camp service project. We will have four sessions that will focus on discovering a spiritual connection with the creator.
In addition to Mark and Sandi please consider joining us for all or part of the weekend activities.
We have room for a few adults to help support the event.
