New Picnic Tables!

On Sat., April 12, a men’s group from American Lutheran in Windom built 8 new picnic tables for camp.  What a gift!  You’ll get to use these this summer for our weekly cookouts on Fridays when you come to pick up your campers.

Sugarbush Sunday!

We had a great day yesterday, Sunday, March 16 with our Sugarbush maple syruping event.  Around 200 folks came out to camp to enjoy a delicious meal of pancakes, sausage, eggs, fruit, and of course, real maple syrup.  Katie Chapman, our Environmental Education Director, led tree-tapping demonstrations and we boiled down sap over a wood fire.  Thanks to the many volunteers also that helped make it a great success.

“Living in God’s Time”

2014-shetek-cover

 

“For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven.” (Ecclesiastes 3:1)

This summer in Bible Time, cabin devotions, worship, and caring conversations, campers will take a closer look at the different church seasons.  Each day at camp, we will focus on a different season of the church year, and explore that holy time, even in the midst of today’s culture.

Daily Themes -

Day 1: Living in Advent - John the Baptist

Day 2: Living in Christmas - The birth of Jesus

Day 3: Living in Lent - The crucifixion of Jesus

Day 4: Living in Easter - The resurrection of Jesus

Day 5: Living in Pentecost - The Holy Spirit

Have you registered for camp yet?  Come and learn more about living in God’s time.

Winter Fun Day!

Winter Fun Day here at Shetek and the snow is coming down just like we ordered!!  Stephanie and Amy welcomed everyone, we played games in the dining hall and then were outside making beautiful snow angels.   After tacos in a bag for lunch, we’ll be cross country skiing and snowshoeing, playing broomball and going on a scavenger hunt.  We’ll spend time learning how we are all part of the body of Christ and our time will end with a campfire outside in the snow.  Fun times!
