When: July 23-28
Help your children, aged 9 to 15, avoid the mid-summer doldrums, send them to Camp Living Waters, an Episcopal summer camp set for July 23 to 28 at Cookson Ranch in Redwood Valley. Camp Living Waters is a week-long Episcopal summer camp. It is a non-profit camp based at St. Alban's parish in Arcata and draws its staff members from the faith communities of the north coast who lead, supervise and encourage campers and counselors. Its week is based around a daily schedule including crafts, outdoor activities, swimming, Bible discussion, worship, and nightly campfire, with additional special activities throughout the week such as stargazing and archery. Campers aged 9 to 15 make new friendships and explore their faith and ask questions; counselors get to do that and learn leadership skills in a supportive atmosphere. The week is spent living and building a Christian community based on the values of love, service and fun. Andrew Curtis, who attended Camp Living Waters for six years, described it as follows, " Two words: God's love. This is the entire purpose of the camp. We find it in a multitude of ways: the cool waters of the creek, the fun activities, the delicious food, the support of the staff and counselors. This is the one time in the summer that I look forward to most." Camp Living Waters is made possible through donations from throughout the Diocese including the Episcopal Diocese of Northern California, Episcopal Community Services, Christ Church Eureka, Episcopal Foundation of Northern California, a generous grant from Humboldt Sponsors and others. Tuition for the camp is $200 and includes five nights lodging, meals, and activities.
