Green Time, Not Screen Time
Today, after a year of COVID, young people are facing more isolation, less connection, and more extreme feelings of loneliness. To say that children and youth are desperate for in-person relationships, nature experiences, and play is an understatement. Studies have shown that time in the outdoors, face-to-face with a diverse group of others plays a significant role in building connections and reducing feelings of depression and anxiety.
Our camps are places where we provide these opportunities. At camp, we create accepting, loving, and experiential communities, where campers and staff are encouraged to grow into who God is calling them to be. What could be more beneficial in this era?
Due to the extraordinary challenges brought by the pandemic, more families need support to make camp experiences affordable. Join us as we create life-affirming, transformational communities.
Join us on Thursday, April 22 at 7:00 pm as we raise scholarships to ensure that all kids have the opportunity to attend camp this summer. Bishop Bob Hoshibata will make a special guest appearance and Rev. Dan Morley will serve as the MC. You won’t want to miss this event! Check the Potosi Pines and Mingus Mountain Camp social media and websites for the zoom link.
