Churches Will Host "Camp Good News" June 23, 2017

Child Evangelism Fellowship (CEF) of Lancaster County will present Camp Good News for children ages 6 to 12 at several area churches.

Calvary Bible Church, 629 Union School Road, Mount Joy, will be the site of the day camp from Monday through Friday, July 10 to 14. Grace Baptist Church, 1899 Marietta Ave., Lancaster, will also host a day camp that week, but it is already at capacity. Additionally, Elizabethtown Grace Brethren Church, 305 Anchor Road, will hold a day camp from Monday through Friday, July 31 to Aug. 4.

All camps will run from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. each day. Children will be invited to sing fun songs, engage in Bible lessons, play games, and make crafts. Each week of camp will conclude with a special Friday Water Day, to which parents and siblings will be invited.

CEF has created the curriculum and trained teenagers to lead the lessons through the Christian Youth in Action program. Adult directors and volunteers provided by the host churches will also be active at each location.

This year's theme is "Discovering Jesus." Camp Good News coordinator/administrator Lisa Kilgore noted that there will be a forensic element to the lessons. "Children will be detectives looking for clues about who Jesus is and how to have a relationship with Him," she said. "All the lessons relate to things Jesus said about Himself - the 'I Am' statements."

Campers will also learn about missionaries who serve with CEF in western and central Africa. The mission story will focus on Mary Slessor, a native of Scotland who spent much of her life sharing the love of Jesus with tribes in the kingdom of Calabar, which is located in southern Nigeria.

Registration is required to attend Camp Good News, and applications will be accepted until all spaces are filled. There is a cost to attend, which includes supplies, snacks, and a picnic lunch on the last day of each camp, and limited scholarships are available. For more information or to register, readers may visit www.ceflancaster.org or contact CEF secretary Heidi Walker at 717-569-5412 or info@ceflancaster.org.

Hempfield Rec Will Host Golf Outing June 23, 2017

The mission of the Hempfield Area Recreation Commission is to enrich lives in the community through programs and services. To ensure that all people with an interest - especially children - are able to participate, the Hempfield Rec offers financial aid toward the cost of tuition as needed.

"It's a great place," executive director Jeff Book said of the rec center, which is located at 950 Church St., Landisville. "It's family-oriented, so there are opportunities for everyone in the family."

During the summer, 260 children are attending Hempfield Rec's day camp, and more than 500 youngsters are participating in the playground program. A significant portion of the participating families received financial aid, Book noted.

As a way to continue making that assistance available, a golf outing will be held on Friday, July 28, at Four Seasons Golf Club, which is situated across the road from the rec center at 949 Church St., Landisville. Hempfield Rec had held a golf outing years ago, and the hope is to make it an annual event once again.

"We thought it was important to bring something like this back," Book said. "It's a way to get business people (and others) together on the course to support our community. The biggest thing is that it benefits kids."

Book would like to see at least 25 groups of four golfers participate in the outing, and he estimated that registration is about a third of the way there.

Separate costs for participation have been set for individuals and for groups of four. The deadline to register is Friday, July 21. Check-in on July 28 will begin at noon, and the shotgun start will be held at 1 p.m. Every golfer will receive a goodie bag containing snacks and bottled water, as well as other items. At the conclusion of the round, golfers may enjoy a dinner of roast pork, scalloped potatoes, and more, which has been included in the registration fee. Skill-based prizes will be awarded at the dinner, and door prize drawings will be held.

Additionally, a drawing will be held to select the winners of several grand prizes. A family membership, a single membership, and a membership for a couple, as well as three months of unlimited tennis court time, will be awarded in the drawing. Anyone may enter, and tickets may be purchased at the rec center's front desk. Winners do not need to attend the golf outing and dinner.

Hempfield Rec staff members and a golf professional have planned the outing. Volunteers to help during the event will be welcome, and sponsorship packages are available. For more information or to register to participate in the golf outing, interested individuals may contact Book at 717-898-3102, ext. 36, or jbook@hempfieldrec.com. Readers may visit www.hempfieldrec.com to learn more about the organization and the programs it offers.

Columbia UMC To Offer Summer Day Camp June 23, 2017

Games, science experiments, Bible stories, crafts, music, a field trip, and special guests will all be in the mix for the 17th annual Columbia United Methodist Church (UMC) summer day camp scheduled for Monday to Friday, July 31 to Aug. 4. Camp will be held from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. each day at the Glatfelter Park pavilion, 1249 Lancaster Ave., Columbia.

Children entering first through sixth grades are invited to attend. Interested individuals may call 717-684-2356 to register by Thursday, July 13. A daily lunch and snack will be included in the minimal fee that is charged for camp.

Columbia UMC pastor Tom Grubbs said that this year campers will learn about how God created them special and that they all are valuable in God's eyes and can make an impact in the world. The opening program each morning will involve singing songs and hearing what the Bible has to say about how special each individual is to God. Next, the children will be divided into small groups that are led by an adult and a junior helper as they rotate to different activity stations.

On Thursday, Aug. 3, campers will take a field trip to learn more about being inventors, and on Aug. 4, Lisa Landis and Fred "Phredd" McNaughton from WJTL's Kids Cookie Break will visit to lead songs and play games with campers. The Kids Cookie Break car will also be on-site.

According to Grubbs, the Columbia UMC summer day camp began 17 years ago and the number of children and volunteers has continued to increase each year. The first two years of day camp were organized by professional staff from Gretna Glen, but after that, members of Columbia UMC began leading the camp themselves at the Glatfelter pavilion. "A unique aspect of our camp is that when campers become seventh- to 12th-graders, they can come back to camp as junior shepherds who help the adult staff," Grubbs said. "Many campers return from year to year to help after they become too old to be campers."

More than 80 children attended the day camp last summer, which was led by approximately 25 volunteers. The volunteers are trained in the church's child protection policy and have all necessary state clearances to work with children.

Grubbs stated that the annual summer day camp is an essential part of how the congregation at Columbia UMC accomplishes its vision of "taking Christ to the community." The heart behind the camp is for children to leave knowing that God loves them and wants to have a relationship with them, said Grubbs.

Columbia UMC is located at 510 Walnut St. and holds weekly Sunday worship with a praise service at 9 a.m., Sunday school at 10:05 a.m., and a traditional service at 11 a.m. All are welcome. For more information, readers may visit www.columbiaunitedmethodist.org.
