Sadly, there was no Day Camp in 2020 at St. Jacob.  We have lots of hopes for 2021 and next summer!!!  Plans are being made by our Ohio outdoor ministries.   With some new vaccines coming we have some new hope.  The good news is that our youth were still able to get together for a week of camp fun on the St. Jacob lawn.  There were a number of games, activities, songs, balloons, rock hunts, prayers and even some crafts at the Dabble Art Studio.  Yes, despite the stunning fact that LOMO (Lutheran Outdoor Ministries of Ohio) had to cancel all of their summer camp activities because of this virus, we are trying to move ahead.  We are doing all we can to keep things going in this area with fun children sermons, camp songs, puppets and some new colorful rocks from our picnic table area.

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.

Here are some pictures from a previous year:
