Mingus Mountain Sr High Spiritual Formation Camp-Cancelled
June 22 @ 2:00 pm - June 27 @ 11:00 am MST
|This session of camp has been cancelled. Please consider registering your camper for Senior High Classic Camp, June 29-July 4.
The God of the Universe is ready to be personally known, yet the rapid pace (and change!) of life in our modern world seems to draw us away form the childlike faith and trust we might once have know. The new camp will guide senior high youth (those entering 9th-recently graduated seniors) into practices to help orient their hearts and souls to discover the peace and joy of connecting with God, even in a harried, heated world. Each day will connect ancient Christian practices to modern life through the wisdom of the core “elements” of creation: space, earth, air, fire, and water.
This unique camp will emulate the routine of a monastic community, combining periods of education and practice, silence, prayer and worship, and rest and recreation (along with familiar camp experiences). The camp is for your desiring and ready to go deeper in their faith, those ready to move beyond “consuming” Christian programs and toward creating a connection with the divine presence of God. The camp is limited to only 24 campers, allowing us to utilize a single retreat cabin for our unique, immersive experience.
Spiritual Formation Camp will welcome special guest Rev. Daniel Wolpert to lead our daily experience. Dan, a Presbyterian minister, is co-founder and executive director of the Minnesota Institute of Contemplation and Healing (MICAHprays.org) and has taught in numerous settings, including college campuses and at The Upper Room’s spiritual retreat, “The Academy for Spiritual Formation”.
Senior High Spiritual Formation Camp is a 5 nights, 6 days (Mon-Sat) open to campers entering 9th through 12th grades (Fall 2020), plus seniors who just graduated (Spring 2020).
