Greetings, family and friends of All Saints!
February is Black History Month, and as such, a list of resources has been assembled for families & individuals to explore for further learning both within and outside of the Episcopal Church. These resources are available via the Resources webpage of the All Saints Youth Ministry website or by CLICKING HERE.
We are still in need of secondary adult support on Wednesday evenings for our Youth Group gatherings. We meet from 7:00-7:45pm via Zoom. If available and willing to assist, contact Erin Wolf for more information.
Students in grades 5-12: Mark your calendars now! We are having a combined youth group Zoom gathering with students from around the diocese on Wednesday, February 24 from 6:30-7:30pm. Please be sure to check your email for more details. I know this means some of our younger students won’t be able to participate, but this is in keeping with age & grade appropriate content and having some events worth waiting for. : )
FDL Summer Camp will, God-willing, be offering in-person sessions this summer if safe enough to do so. If this is indeed the case, we will be heading to Waypost Camp in Hatley, WI (east of Mosinee and southeast of Wausau). It is one of three camp locations that make up Crossways Camps, an ELCA camping ministry with offices located in Appleton, WI. Our group will be the only one on-site during our time there, and there are lots of cool new activities and program opportunities available to use, including a low ropes initiative course, gardening/composting, and bread making.
At-home camp activities will still be made available for families who are unable to join in-person, yet still want to be connected. If conditions become such that it is not safe to offer in-person camp at all for 2021, we will return to the Camp @ Home model from 2020.
COVID-19 precautions and safety measures will be put in place, and we are working with Waypost Camp, Crossways Camps, our diocesan COVID-19 Task Force, and guidelines set out by the American Camping Association to help provide as safe an environment as possible. Registration, volunteer staff applications, and more details will be available in the coming weeks. Session dates & ages are listed below. Updates will be shared via official diocesan channels – diocesan website, FDL Summer Camp webpage, diocesan Facebook page, @diofdlyouth Instagram account, and Scattering Seeds newsletter.
Senior Camp (completed grades 9-12 & high school 2020 grads): June 20-26, 2021
Middler Camp (completed grades 6-8): June 27-July 1, 2021
Junior Camp (completed grades 2-5): June 27-July 1, 2021
Kinder Camp (ages 4-7 with adult): July 1-3, 2021
Have a safe and blessed rest of the week, all!
