Get ready for our first online Seabeck All-Church Summer Camp!
In this time of pandemic and protesting, The Seabeck Planning Committee is moving forward with plans to hold our annual all-church camp. Adjusting to the realities of social distancing, there will be many changes, but we are holding true to the spirit – a time of connection, learning, and relaxing.
It will be good to gather for deep conversation and connection, even while missing our time together at Seabeck Conference Center. We will hold the usual morning programs, and have ideas and opportunities to connect and have some of those deeper discussions we often have at camp.
The dates will be as originally planned from July 6 to July 10, 2020. Registration will be done through the church website beginning on Thursday, June 11, and the cost will be minimal. Just like always, there will be a morning program for each age grouping (adults, youth, and preschool/elementary) and then a selection of favorite activities at other points in the day. The adults and youth will meet from 11am to 1:30pm, including a break in the middle for lunch. The younger children will begin at 9:00am with singing and morning welcome then have guided activities lasting until 10:30am for older elementary class.
Professor David Roon (and yes, that’s Amy’s brother!) will offer the adult program topics beginning with Reconciliation Ecology, Creation Care and how that differs from other forms of ecology, Environmental Racism and Environmental Justice, and closing with Practical Responses at the personal, community and national levels. We do expect to have our traditional Wednesday workshop format and time in the afternoons for Talk Back.
When you register for camp, you’ll get the Zoom/etc. links needed to participate and a packet of helpful materials, plus anything else we can think of to send you to add to the fun.
We also encourage you to consider making a donation to the Seabeck Conference Center, (considering how much you are saving on lodging this year!)
So…..dust off those jokes for Sunnyside campfire, warm up your voice for singing along with Betsy Rose (yes! she’ll be with us too), get your brain cells ready for some learning, and encourage your family and friends (and neighbors) to join us.
We will update this post with the link to the registration form when it goes live.
