Father Son Retreat: May 5 - 6

God gave us a beautiful planet with fresh water, animals and plants to enjoy and use. He instructed us to take care of these gifts and protect them too. At the Father/Son Retreat we’ll learn and do 10 easy, but important, things we can do to Care for God’s Creation.

The Father/Son Retreat is a terrific time for sons and dads (grandpas) to spend time together.  The retreat begins at 6:30 p.m. Friday and closes at 3 p.m. Saturday. Come join us as we ‘Care for God’s Creation’, play games, hike to Lost Cave, fish and canoe, cook over a fire, do a craft, and ride the Giant Swing. Bring along your sleeping bag and pillow, and a flashlight and boots for the cave.  

Cost is:  $35 for adults, $25 for boys grades K-8. Register by May 1st. For more information print off a Father Son Registration Flyer.


 

 

 

 

 

Bird Walk at Camp: May 27

Join us at Camp Blue Diamond as we spend the morning sighting and learning about many different local birds. Gabe Imler, one of Camp’s best counselors and bird enthusiast, will be our host for the day. We'll meet at camp at 7 a.m., and hike around camp looking for species that make their home here. In the late morning we'll travel by camp van to a local Bald Eagle nest, and then to Shaver's Creek Environment Center, where we will visit the Raptor Center. The event concludes with lunch back at camp. Cost for the day is $10. For more information check out the Bird Walk Flyer. Please RSVP by May 21 by contacting camp by email or call (814) 667-2355.

 

 

Sr. Adult Day: Friday, June 2
Come be inspired with David Radcliffe, Director of New Community Project. David’s passion for God’s people and creation inspires him to find ways to change the world by changing the way we relate to the planet and its people. Through photos and stories you’ll visit Burma, The Republic of Congo, the Ecuadorian Amazon, the Denali in Alaska, a Navajo Reservation in New Mexico, and more!

This event is geared toward Senior Adults, but all are welcome! Cost is $10 and includes a continental breakfast and a large lunch. In addition to David’s session, there will be worship, music, and optional crafts, camp tours and the climbing tower. To register, complete the Sr. Adult Registration Form and mail it with $10 ($13 if you want a pack lunch to take home for supper) to: Camp Blue Diamond, PO Box 240, Petersburg, PA  16669.
