Hope Lutheran Church hosts day camp
Hope Lutheran Church, at 2222 North Taylor Road, will host its 16th annual day camp for children who have completed any grade from kindergarten through sixth grade this current (2015–16) school year. The camp runs from Monday, June 27, through Friday, July 1, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. most days.
“The Jesus Way” is this year’s theme, as three trained counselors from Lutheran Outdoor Ministries of Ohio will lead Bible study, discovery classes, singing, crafts and sports. Each day will center on an aspect of Jesus’ ministry, such as the feeding of the 5,000, forgiving the woman at the well, and washing his disciples’ feet while instructing them to serve one another likewise.
There are no fees charged for the weeklong camp, as it is an annual outreach ministry of Hope Lutheran, but registration is required for each camper, along with medical and contact information.
Registration will begin at 8:30 a.m. on June 27, the first day of camp. Children are asked to bring their own lunch each day; afternoon snacks and drinks will be provided.
An informational flyer will be sent out three weeks prior to camp. To request a flyer, or for more information about this year’s camp, call the church office at 216-371-5252.
During the week of camp, the church will sponsor the annual Hillcrest Band lawn concert and ice cream social, on Tuesday, June 28, at 7:30 p.m. It will also host a cookout and program for campers and their families, safety visits from the Cleveland Heights Police and Fire departments, a water-sports day, and more.
