Family Camp 2014!
Have you ever wished you could stop all the activities for just a few minutes to focus on your family and on God? Does spending time with other Orthodox families that are also trying to make God the focus in their lives sound appealing? Join us at Family Camp this year and do just that!
New Campsite – Camp Courage!
Nestled in the woods near Annandale, Minnesota, is a new camp location waiting to welcome us for Family Camp! Our committee is excited about this new spot, Camp Courage. It is about an hour from Minneapolis. If you don’t know anything about Camp Courage, they have a long standing history working with children with disabilities. The entire facility is handicap accessible. Families will have rooms with adjoining bathrooms. Four to six families will share a living space in a cabin style lodge. The camp offers athletic fields, walking trails, pontoon rides, mini golf, swimming pool, indoor and outside basketball courts and much more!
This year we are thrilled to announce that Mother Macrina of the Dormition Monastery is our guest speaker. For those of you with camp-aged kids, Mother Macrina is a camp favorite! Her love for the church is contagious and her approach to teaching is infectious! You will not want to miss time with her. She will be speaking about the church cycles and what they mean to us in our daily lives. There is no question we will all learn much from her! We are grateful to the Monastery for allowing her to spend time with her Minnesota family!
