August "Staycation"


Summer is a great time to be a kid! Regardless of whether you are old enough to be on vacation from school, there are more opportunities to be outside, playing and enjoying the wonders of God’s creation. Hey, adults enjoy summer too!

Knowing this, Denver Presbytery’s Leadership Work Group has planned an August “Staycation” at Highlands Camp and Conference Center on August 7-8, 2015. Recall that “staycations" are shorter, closer to home, and less expensive than a full-blown vacation. Therefore, more families can enjoy them!

You and your family are invited to come up to Highlands Camp for summer camp activities: hiking canoeing, archery, nature trails. Older kids and adults can zip line or rock climb. Summer camp also involves fellowship and learning. Tim Mooney will lead intergenerational activities, including arts and crafts, based on his book Like a Child. Of course, no summer camp would be complete without an evening campfire for singing, storytelling and s’mores!

When you register as a family, you’ll be assigned to a Conference Center room with beds for 4 or more. If you register as a couple or a single, you’ll share a single-gender room with 3 others. The fees include all meals and activity fees and vary by age. Everything’s explained when you register on the Highlands Camp website here.

The fun begins on Friday afternoon and extends through a noon meal on Saturday. Presbytery commissioners will attend the Saturday assembly at Highlands.  Not a commissioner?  Stay and enjoy all the activities at Highlands.  What a great way to experience Highlands Camp for the first time and/or relive those summer camp experiences!  You’ll be creating awe-and-wonder-filled memories!
