Winter Reunion 2018

Posted by on December 9, 2018

Season’s greetings campers,

Have you been missing camp lately? Well then you should join us this December 28th thru December 30th for the annual Brookwoods & Deer Run Winter Reunion! This is a unique opportunity for you to return to camp, be encouraged in your walk with Christ, connect with friends, and catch up with your counselors!

We are excited to have Pastor Craig Higgins joining us from Trinity Presbyterian Church, as this year’s speaker. The theme is titled “Your Story,” focusing on the significance of your testimony and what God has done in your life. We will pull themes out of the “Toy Story” movies and also focus on Ephesians 2:8, “For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith- and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God- not by works, so that no one can boast.” My hope is that you walk away from the weekend encouraged and aware of the story God has called you into!

There will be fun activities including broomball, sledding, gingerbread building contest, lip sync, board games, and so much more. There will be plenty of great food, snacks, and hot chocolate throughout the weekend! We hope you can join us for this awesome weekend together.

WHEN: Friday, December 28, 2018 through Sunday, December 30, 2018. Plan to arrive between 7:00 – 8:00 PM on Friday. Dinner will not be served at camp, so please eat before you arrive. The reunion will end at 2:00 PM on Sunday.

Weekend of Giving: July 20-22, 2018

Every summer, over 20% of our campers require financial assistance to attend Camp Brookwoods, Deer Run, and Moose River Outpost. The need for scholarships is on-going and it’s our heartfelt desire to make our summer camps available to a wider population. Last summer, we gifted over $225,000 to bring more kids to camp.

Be a Changemaker! Commit to helping transform lives by donating to our Scholarship Fund during our Weekend of Giving, July 20th – 22nd. We need your help to reach our goal of raising $25,000 in three days!
