News from the Park

So there's more reason to go to a Work Day than just Work...

No trouble sleeping at camp this summer!

...you also get to find out what's going on in the Park!  So last Saturday (June 14) was our Spring Work Day.  We got the Tabernacle cleaned up for its many engagements over the Summer, including the Valley Forge Chorus Concert, the King's Brass Concert, and our own Highland Park Campmeeting.  Many thanks to the Eichlins, Ian Johnston, and Matt Erickson for coming and helping out!   We also found out that Highland Park is planning on pampering our campers with some brand new mattresses for its bunks.  These mattresses are nice and firm, much thicker than the old ones, and very comfortable, considering they are for bunk beds!

Introducing Imago Dei

We also get to welcome some new guests to our community.  If you've been to camp recently, you may have seen their signs up and around.  This group meets every 2nd and 4th Sunday of each month, and takes part some great mission work throughout the local communities here and around Highland Park.  As you can see, they have already left their mark on Highland.

They also worked heavily on what used to be the "Old Dining Hall" underneath Boys' Dorm.  This area was first partitioned into separate rooms by Cornerstone Community Church several years ago, and Imago Dei has taken that work a few step further.  They will be occupying Highland Park's facilities during our off-seasons when they are not in use, which helps to take care the grounds during the rest of the year.

We would like to welcome them to Highland Park, and we look forward to working with their church.

Many great things are happening at camp these days!  Please plan on checking them out at our annual Campmeeting from July 26-August 3!  Click here for more info!
