Camp Pastor, Christine van Belle from Corvallis Mennonite Fellowship, will be hosting a book discussion on Traci Smith’s new publication Faithful Families. The resource has suggestions for low-stress ways to add family faith moments to your daily routine and share meaningful spiritual experiences with your children. Traci Smith, a pastor and mother of three, offers ways to discover and develop new spiritual practices as a family, whether you’re a new seeker or a lifelong follower. Faithful Families is brimming with more than 50 easy, do-it-yourself ideas for transforming your family’s everyday moments into sacred moments!
Interested in supporting the staff in a fun, behind-the-scenes way? We are looking for “Staff Buddies” who will “adopt” a counselor during summer programming. We are looking for folks to pray for staff members and send occasional notes of encouragement to boost morale when energy is depleted. Additionally, each year we welcome summer staff with a bag o’ fun! Would you be willing to supply items to share with staff? Counselors appreciate most anything, but things like gum, energy bars, nuts, stamps, lip balm, pens, paper, etc. are always appreciated! Finally, each day the summer staff gathers to hear announcements, to share joys & struggles. The short meeting provides the counselors with the opportunity to reflect, catch their breath and pray together. This is a great time to bless the staff and say thank you for their giant contributions! Do you have an abundance of garden produce? Fruit? Cookies? Snacks? (Seriously, these young adults are always hungry!) It is a delight to share gifts with the counselors and help them know that their work is appreciated.
Welcome to Drift Creek Camp:
Drift Creek is a place where Christian values of caring for and sharing with each other in daily life can be experienced. DCC is rooted in the Anabaptist tradition and operated by the Mennonite Camp Association of Oregon, Inc., and is a member of the Mennonite Camping Association (MCA) and Christian Camp and Conference Association (CCCA). We are located in a temperate rainforest that speaks eloquently of God’s handiwork and beautiful creation.
Several years ago, we were informed that major work was scheduled for summer/fall 2018 on DCC’s only access road. That project has been postponed, likely for 2019. We are grateful that camp will be utilized this year, but inconsistent school schedules, snow days and the needs of rental groups before and following DCC’s camps forced the decision to squeeze our programs in order to maximize usage. We will begin 3rd & 4th-grade camp on Tuesday, June 19 and conclude Saturday, June 23. High School camp will begin on Sunday, June 24. Thank you for your patience and flexibility! Questions? Please don’t hesitate to contact email@example.com.
