It’s a Picnic at camp!

A Picnic at camp, that sounds like a great idea, huh? Camp’s going to provide the food? Even better! And there will be activities for my kids and me to do together? Wow – can’t get any better I would say!

The Annual JKC Family Picnic is coming up right around the corner and, in my humble opinion, it is a thoroughly enjoyable day to spend at camp. We as staff get to see a lot of different people come through these gates for their own individual specialized events. Whether it is kids as campers, church members for their weekend retreat, women at the Women’s Retreat, or sewers here to do their thing; the great thing about the Family Picnic is there are no requirements to attend! You don’t have to be a certain age, go to a particular church, be a certain gender, have any skills, or wear the coolest gear!

I also love that I get the chance to work with former staff again. Often times many of the current year’s summer staff will come back for one more hurrah at JKC for the year to help lead all the activities. Also, we get a few past staff (from way back, too, sometimes!) that will reappear for a return weekend to lend a helping hand. This is great fun for me to see familiar faces and work with the folks that make a large part of this ministry run, past and present.

Mark your calendar to join us for the Family Picnic on Sunday, September 18th from 2-6pm. It is surely going to be an amazing day of play and fellowship –  you wouldn’t want to miss out. Check back for more details about the picnic closer to the date.

See you soon!
