We are so sad to have to report that Day Camp 2020 R at St. Jacob is officially cancelled. LOMO (Lutheran Outdoor Ministries of Ohio) had to cancel all of their summer camp activities due to the COVID-19 coronavirus. We were scheduled for the week right before July 4th, which is the 29th of June to the 3rd of July. We look forward to continuing to stay in touch and dream about when we can get together again. Until then, you can follow Pastor Hout’s children sermons at stjacob.net. He has been using some Day Camp songs like “Love, I’ll Love” and “I Just Want To Be a Sheep” complete with a giant sheep head!!!
What a great week it was in 2019. We were here July 8-12 from 9-3 each day. To prepare for the week we collected lots of important needs with our “giving tree”. We also collected a lot of things for other people with our white bucket challenge to help with tornado relief. Our Day Camp was staffed by energetic and specially trained young adults from LOMO (Lutheran Outdoor Ministries of Ohio). The theme was “Transformed Community: God’s Agents of C.H.A.N.G.E.” Can you believe we have been doing this for nearly a quarter of a century?
Miamisburg has started a rock garden. It looks great and reminds us of the nice rocks we have been collecting for years in our picnic table area during Day Camp. Many thanks to all who continue to contribute rocks for our special area.
