Theme:  “God is my Anchor"

Campers will enjoy a full day of fun!  This is the first time at camp for many of them so the day is designed to introduce them to a little bit of everything.  They will enjoy time on the playground and playing other sorts of games, swim time, craft time, worship, lunch, canteen, and even campfire.  They do not want to miss this day!

To help us in expediting the day, we ask that your child comes in their swim attire.  They may wear shorts and a tee shirt over their swimsuit.  Please bring: street clothes to change into after swim time, underwear, socks, shoes, sunscreen, and a towel.  These items should all be packed in a backpack/bag for easy transportation.  It would also be helpful if you would label all of your child’s belongings.

Teams are assigned prior to the camp session.  If your child has requested to be with a friend, arrangements have been made for them to be together.  If you didn’t request a teammate and would like to, please call the camp office.  Team assignments also have grouped children from the same ‘Home Church’ together.

Dean: Amanda Salvaggio is a cook, aunt, musician and servant.  She has been involved in ministry since she was 16 years old and loves to serve at camp.  "My heart as long resided at MCC.  I have been a camper for most of my young life and jumped right into serving as soon as I was asked.  I chose to follow Christ, as I know many do, because of my encounters with Jesus and the relationships that I have fostered through my time at camp.  As a friend once said, it is "more than just a camp."  For me, it has been a place of healing service, challenge and growth and I work now as a dean to hopefully continue the work of so many others that have come before me; offering hope in a time where that seems harder to come by."
