This summer, a very special camp is coming to our community. It’s called Camp Noah and kids won’t want to miss out on fun games, skits, songs, crafts and puppet shows. Camp Noah will be held in Cromwell July 8-12 at Bethany Lutheran Church. This camp is unique because it’s all about building resiliency in kids, especially kids impacted by disasters like the Northland flash flood. When a disaster happens, we can forget that children also need support. At Camp Noah, they will have the opportunity to make new friends, have fun and, most of all, know they are not alone. Camp Noah is sponsored by Lutheran Social Service of Minnesota and Bethany Lutheran Church, and is open to all elementary-age children (completed kindergarten through sixth grade). There is no charge for children to participate, but you must register in advance. Space is limited, so call today! Call Donna Frank, coordinator, at 218-341-1031 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also register online at heep://cromwellbethanylutheran.org.
Girls Basketball Camp will be held June 17-18 from 10:45 a.m. to 12:45 p.m. and June 19 from 12:30-3 p.m. It’s open to all girls entering grades three through seven. Contact Mr. Gronner for more information at 218-644-3716 ext. 2143.
