Special Thank you to our 2018 Camp Friendship Volunteers
This year at Camp Friendship we had 22 campers and at least 109 volunteers!! There were 21 companions, 63 people who helped either with meals or respite, plus an additional 25 people who helped with things like leading bible stories, music, arts & crafts, bed set up/tear down, and decorating. We also had a nurse who helped with camper registration.
What an amazing group of Volunteers! Thank you so much for your support of the Camp Friendship Ministry!
Stay tuned for our 2019 Camp Dates!
What is Camp Friendship?
Get away for a week of camp! Camp Friendship is a four day, three night Christian camp for differently-abled adults held the 2nd full week of July. At Camp Friendship, each camper is paired with a volunteer who serves as a camp companion for all camp activities. Each day of camp is filled with fun activities, including Bible learning, arts and crafts, and a wide variety of recreation activities including swimming, hiking, fishing, team sports and more.
On the first and third Thursdays of each month (fall-spring) join us 6:30-7:30pm, Fellowship Hall, as we engage our adult friends with cognitive disabilities for Bible learning, music, art, prayer and friendship.
For more information, or to get involved, contact Pat Tietz or Louise Machemehl.
On the first or second Saturday of each month (October through May), Peace offers a 9am-3pm “day camp” respite ministry for persons age 14 and above with cognitive disabilities. Join us for Bible study, art, recreation, music, worship, food, friendship and plenty of smiles.
Volunteers are needed to help provide food for and serve lunch meals during Respite Saturdays. Volunteers are also needed to assist participants in respite activities. Volunteer once in a while, or every month! Contact Pat Tietz to get involved.
