We had another wonderful experience with the Stronghold Day Camp. We saw 45 kids enjoying the experience with us. We were thanked by parents for having this fun, affordable experience for the kids.
Thanks for Cathy for doing all the paperwork, sending, collecting, gathering, and editing everything for us and Sondra for getting flyers approved and distributed at all the Streator area schools.
Gemma from Scotland was our team leader, Shelby from Rockford has been here before and has lots of energy and a never-ending smile. Krys and Peter were from Poland. Both guys were very serious when needed and were fun and playful the rest of the time. A great group of counselors!
We wish to thank the McTaggarts for hosting our counselors and for entertaining them in the evenings a bit as well! Thank you so much!
Thanks to those who fed our counselors! Great meals according to the Stronghold staff!
The volunteer helpers were wonderful! Several came more than one day to help and Karyn, Gigi, Deb, and Pastor David went above and beyond by filling up water balloons and loading, hauling, and unloading all that water to the park. All our kitchen and serving help were great. Thanks to Spence and Pastor David for coming in several lunchtimes to help with the serving and clean up! It was a wonderful group effort!
A great big thank you to all of you who contributed snacks, juices, monies, and prayers! We couldn’t do this without you all!!
This year the New Beginnings Group had an Ice Cream Event after the last campfire. It was a wonderful ending to a great week! Prayers were answered, and a very successful week happened!
Thank you everyone!
