We had another great year down at Wi-ne-ma for Family Camp! Each year over Labor Day Weekend families gather together for one last outing before the school year begins. Family Camp functions as a “conference” style weekend with short morning and evening sessions for all age groups, paired with plenty of free time and planned family fun. The camp grounds are closed off to the public for the weekend, giving the camp a private and yet connected feeling as every group present is there for the same purpose.
This year nearly 500 people attended the conference, and roughly 180 of those were under the age of 18. This is the sixth year that I have been directing the elementary ages at Family Camp and each year has steadily grown larger than the last. Praise God, and may He continue to bless this camp as it reaches more and more families in His name!
Over the weekend the kids focused in on Micah 6:8 as a target they should aim for in their lives. The weekend was themed on marksmanship – who doesn’t like shooting things? Huge shout out to the volunteers who came and sacrificed their time to help make camp successful. Next year we will need even MORE hands as we have grown to the point that we are the size of a small VBS!
But we also want you to attend Family Camp! It really is a lot of fun, there are great speakers, fun activities and competitions for all ages, and it really is just a nice and fun weekend on the beautiful Oregon Coast! This year there was even a profession espresso cart on site for all your caffeinated needs!
