6th, 7th & 8th Grade Summer Service Camp
July 20-22, 2017 at the Newman Center
WHO: Students from any parish are welcome including rising 6th graders.
WHAT: We will have 3 days of service projects to our community with evening programming that will include music, games, prayer and of course–great food! Service will benefit The Food Bank, Ronald McDonald House, Loaves & Fishes, The Bluffs and our local parishes and we are still adding sites! Service will be a mix of “face to face” projects where we will meet our beneficiaries and “behind the scenes” or anonymous projects.
WHEN: Drop-off will be Thursday morning, July 20th at 8 a.m. and we’ll finish up with 5 p.m. Mass & a family potluck on Saturday, July 22nd
WHERE: Sleeping quarters will be in Newman Center classrooms and we also have shower facilities here. Meals and evening programming will be in the Newman Center MPR. Service projects will be around Columbia and parents and EDGE Core members who are fully VIRTUS compliant will serve as chaperones and drivers.
COST: $75 per student which includes all meals and supplies for the event. We will ask for donations to make freezer meals for the Ronald McDonald house. Scholarships are available and payments are not due until July. We are not currently accepting payments so that all transactions for this event will occur in the fiscal year that begins July 1, 2017.
