What are your kids doing this summer?
The Holston Conference Hispanic Ministries Team wants to invite Hispanic/Latino students to participate in United Methodist summer programs that will build discipleship for all. The children and youth should be first-time participants in the following opportunities:
Children ages kindergarten through 12th grade are encouraged to apply for scholarships to participate in one of three summer camps offered throughout June and July. Children may attend Camp Lookout in Rising Fawn, Ga., Camp Wesley Woods in Townsend, Tenn., or Camp Dickenson in Fries, Va. Camps vary from daytime-only events to half-week or full-week overnight camps, some with special themes such as dance or horseback riding. All campers are grouped with students their own age. (For more information, visit HolstonCamping.com.)
Youth in junior high or high school are encouraged to apply for scholarships for “Assembly,” an annual spiritual adventure held at a conference college. This year’s “Assembly” will be held June 29-July 3 at Emory & Henry College in Emory, Va. Students will participate in worship, small groups, and special activities such as drama, song writing, photography or dance. (For more information, visit HolstonYouth.com.)
