Register now for Peace Lutheran's free day camp
Peace Lutheran Church, carrying on the tradition of Hope Lutheran, one of its predecessor congregations, will offer its 19th annual Christian Day Camp June 10–14. The camp is free of charge and runs 9 a.m to 3 p.m. daily at the church, located at 3740 Mayfield Road in Cleveland Heights.
The camp is open to all children who will have completed any grade from kindergarten through grade five as of the end of this current school year.
Registration is open now, with a June 3 deadline, and is limited to 30 campers.
As part of Lutheran Outdoor Ministries of Ohio, the camp’s main staff will be three professionally trained counselors, organized under the guidelines of the American Camping Association.
Activities include daily Bible study discussions around this year's theme, Transformed Community. Children will also participate in sports and games, arts and crafts, singing, storytelling, and nature education. Visits from the Cleveland Heights Police and Fire departments are also anticipated as part of the activities.
As part of registration, each child’s medical history and drop-off and pick-up information must be included. While afternoon snacks are provided, the congregation asks that families supply each camper with lunch.
For more information, or for registration materials, call the church office at 216-382-4545, or visit www.peacelutheran-clehts.org.
