Our church sponsored twelve children who attended Bayshore Camp in Sebwaing in 2017. The church budgets money each year to send children attending our church to camp. Most of our campers go to Bayshore camp but there are other United Methodist camps throughout the state that a child from our church can attend. There are pamphlets about Bayshore and other United Methodist summer camps on the church east hall table.

Colt and Keisha Warzinsky, Marie, Meadow and Megan Nichols, Deb Schell, Nathaniel Tovar and Jackie Teets all went to Teddy Bear Camp last year. Daniel Tovar, Carlie Wendorf and a friend went to Junior Camp. Martin Tovar and a friend attended Baseball Camp. Molly Hartel, Julia Tovar and Emily Hendra participated in Senior High Camp. Molly Hartel also was a counselor at Bayshore Camp in 2017.

To earn money to send these children to camp, our church has a pancake and sausage breakfast on Memorial Day. We ask those that are planning on going to camp to help with this meal. We have a loose change offering during church services once a month for camp. The money collected at our Birthday Sunday celebrations goes to the camp fund. The congregation is asked to bring their returnable bottles to the church and we redeem them for the deposit on each bottle. This money also goes to the camp fund. The church pays a fee to the Bayshore Camp Association each year which allows us to take a small discount on each child that goes to camp.

Our policy is that if the family of the child attending camp pays $50.00 of the camp cost, the church will pay the rest of the camp fee. Our church will even pay the full camp cost if the family cannot afford the $50.00 fee. Also if the child desires to go to camp but won’t go without a friend attending with them, we will let them ask a friend to attend camp with them under the same financial arrangement.

If your child or grandchild attends our church, please consider sending them to church camp this year. To attend Teddy Bear Camp your child must be entering the first or second grade and be accompanied by an adult. When the child is going into the third grade he can attend Primary Camp or Junior Music Camp. Then there are camps for all ages until grade twelve. Besides regular camp, there is Worships Art Camp, Fishing Camp, Basketball Camp, Soccer Camp, Boys Baseball Camp and Girls Softball Camp. At camp they have zip-line, miniature golf, an outdoor pool, laser tag, paintball and a climbing wall.

If you would like to check out Bayshore Camp in May, they are having a Father / Son Catfish Tournament May 11 & 12 and a Memorial Day Family Weekend may 25-28. June 8 & 9 Bayshore has Spring Family Fun Days where you can go check out the camp. 

If you have any questions, please contact the church at 672-9101 or talk to Jackie Teets.
