Building Beloved Community Day Camp: August 19-23

This year, our ecumenical day camp will be both later in the summer and at a new location: Diamond Lake Lutheran Church (5760 Portland Ave). Our program arc will be Monday–Thursday (August 19–22), with a family celebration on Thursday night. Friday is a bonus fun day. We are excited to welcome children between the ages of entering Kindergarten through middle school, and we hope to have a wonderful crew of high school leaders. We also need adult volunteers. We welcome folks to come for a few hours or for the entire week; volunteers can work directly with kids or work in support roles. All the information about day camp and the links to register as a camper or volunteer can be found at the daycamp website.

Summer Camping Weekend: August 16–18

Join us for a weekend of camping, at Camp Amnicon. Like the last couple of years, we will team up with friends from University Lutheran Church of Hope.

Amnicon is on the south shore of Lake Superior (about 20 minutes outside of Duluth). The Amnicon River also runs through the camp. They have great hiking, canoes to borrow, and a fabulous beach for hanging out, swimming, and campfires. We will also gather for community time and worship. Meals will be provided by the camp under their outdoor pavilion. The lodging will be a choice between platform tents (permanent tents with beds—you bring your own sleeping bag), bringing your own camping gear and camping there, or renting one of their small cabins. Email the church office for a registration form!
