My name is Rebekkah Phibbs and I am the Administrative Assistant Director for Camp Huron this summer. As we begin preparations for the summer, we are hoping to increase the registration numbers in the following weeks.
Camp Huron has been unable to host children as we usually do for the past two years, and this summer we are eager to celebrate the space that we were given to share our faith with the children in our communities. We are hoping to reach some new campers this year, and hoping that you all are able to share some of this information with families in and around your community.
Camp is a diverse and welcoming community, where children and youth are free to be themselves without restrictions. We continue to make it our mission to be as inclusive as possible. Children from the ages of 6-16 years old are welcome to take part in our week-long programs (Leader in Training is for 15-16 years), no matter what background they have or who they present themselves as. Please feel free to look on Youtube for “The Wedding Banquet” music video on the Camp Huron Youtube page—this might give you a good idea of who we are and what we represent.
This summer is a great opportunity for churches to sponsor or encourage children to go to camp, and give them an experience of a lifetime. Everyone is welcome at camp, including those who may need financial aid, children who need extra attention, or those who need a safe place. We offer the ability to have a one-to-one camp counsellor present with children who have exceptional needs, and a staff who have a plethora experience within this role. Camp Huron is a place where every child belongs.
We are also taking the necessary COVID-19 precautions, and all staff on site are fully vaccinated.
This year, our theme for the summer is Home-Longing, Home-Coming. We are coming home to Camp Huron this summer, and we are eager to continue to grow our camp family through our faith and community. We could not be more excited to welcome children back home this summer.
Please feel free to reach out to me with any questions or concerns regarding the summer, and make sure to register on our website!
