MARK #1

SUMMER CAMP

slide5

Weeklong summer camp experiences for upper elementary through high school students.

Reflecting our local population, we serve a cross-cultural group of students, diverse in culture, race, age and economic background.

slide6

In Creation We:

Tend to Birch & Ranger (our goat and sheep)

Paddle on lakes & rivers

Explore our glacial history by biking & hiking

Discover cultural history at nearby petroglyphs

slide8

Connecting to Christ:

Our counselors believe that all campers are children of God, loved by Christ – and we spend the week showing that love to campers through all that we do.

slide10

Community Building:

New friendships through shared experiences in the outdoors; healthy relationships with young adult mentors; working together on service projects…

slide12

MARK #2

URBAN YOUTH MINISTRY

slide13

To be a greater asset to Milwaukee’s youth, we are committed to working with urban congregations to help with their year-round youth ministry programming.

Expected results of this work include…

slide14

Stronger staff to camper relationships

Greater involvement in youth development

Strong camper retention rates and new camper enrollment

Strong youth ministry leading to a strengthened Church

slide15

MARK #3

WORKING WITH LOCAL

COLLEGE STUDENTS

slide16

As we use this new location to develop future camp and youth leaders, we expect to become a greater asset for Milwaukee’s youth, local congregations and the greater Church.

Through a unique arrangement with Lutheran Campus Ministry of Greater Milwaukee, we have relocated our office to the Corner House across the street from the student union at UW-Milwaukee.

…grow in faith, aspire to a life of great purpose and, of course, attend summer camp at Camp Indian Sands…

…and, perhaps go on to college

serve as a mentor at a local church, work as a camp counselor,

SUMMER STAFF 2009

slide30

This is summer program director, Victor. He’s either leading one of our service projects over at the Mecan Nature Center – Renewable World Foundation or about to pull a prank.

Odds are good that its a pinecone ambush.

slide31

“I enjoyed the small size of the camp. The staff, especially at awards night, really made all of the kids feel included.”

-AndreaYouth Director

slide32

This is Craig, showing just how far he’ll go to provide health care assistance to an injured camper.

slide33

Second year counselor, Wantee – either he’s all decked out for Capture the Flag or he’s getting ready to dance with the Jabbawockeez.

slide34

Counselor Kate serves as archery instructor, butterfly enthusiast and caretaker of the animals… and apparently she also juggles fire.

“All children learn at about the same rate (at least in terms of basic skills) during the school year.

True for all socio-economic groups

Differences in achievement between (poor/middle-class children) are based in inequalities that children experience outside of school.”
