We all learned some valuable lessons from our inaugural year of summer camp. Starting a camp from scratch – without a budget, volunteer team or history of excited campers – was daunting. Everyone worked incredibly hard to raise funds and plan an awesome week of activities for Chalice Camp.
“It’s a blessing we were born, and it matters what we do. What we know about life is a piece of the truth. Let the beauty we love be what we do, and we don’t have to do it alone…”
This was our camp song throughout the week, which contains all of our daily themes. Learning, playing, being together. We made some amazing memories along the way. We packed in as many fun experiences and workshops from congregants and community members as we could.
Some of Our Workshops
- Community Gardening
- Martial Arts
Campers were encouraged to try all of the workshops for at least 10 minutes; if they really didn’t like it, they wouldn’t have to participate. Most of the time, most campers decided to see the workshop through. Each person contributing special gifts, ideas and energy made the Chalice Camp one for the books.
