“Our sons and daughters will have visions and dreams creating new communities for the common good, for all cultures and all languages.”
Day Camp 2013, July 29 – Aug 29, will provide tutoring for children, ages 3-13, in writing, reading, and math, to keep their skills current and provide more success in school. Meals and field trips, day care for younger siblings are all sponsored through La Iglesia Episcopal de la Resurrección.
Summer Day Camp – Resurrección 2013
We are looking for teachers, classroom aids, cooks, drivers and youth groups to help with the Summer Day Camp at Iglesia de la Resurrección, Mt Vernon. The Day Camp is designed for school-age children of low income farm-workers in the Skagit Valley area to receive tutoring, educational field trips and childcare for their younger siblings just before school starts. Volunteers are needed for one to four weeks, Mon-Fri, 8:30am – 1:00 pm from July 29-Aug 23. Volunteers for crafts come once a week. Drivers are needed only on field trip days.
Last summer, together with Church of the Redeemer-Kenmore, a 2-week Day Camp was developed and was a remarkable experience for the 60 children participating and the dozens of volunteers from Resurrección, Redeemer, St. Paul’s- Mt. Vernon, St. Aidan’s-Camano Island, Christ Church-Anacortes.
This year we are planning a 4-week Day Camp to serve 100 children, ages 2-13 from the church and community. Breakfast and lunch will be served along with crafts, field trips and tutoring in reading, writing, and math. In order to meet the needs of these children volunteers are being sought from all churches in the Diocese of Olympia. Local housing is available for volunteers coming from afar.
All who participated last year felt it was a life-changing experience. “In serving these children, we are serving Christ himself.” Please consider what you and your parish may be able to contribute for this summer’s Day Camp at Resurrección.
