What is Amazing Grace Day Camp?
Amazing Grace Day Camp is a unique blend of congregational evangelism, outreach, and outdoor ministries. This ministry is a partnership sponsored by the Southern Ohio Synod, staffed by Lutheran Outdoor Ministries in Ohio (LOMO) and hosted by Good Shepherd Lutheran Church. (GSLC)
Amazing Grace Day Camp:
- Is designed for children who will be entering grades 1-7.
- Provides a camping experience for youth who may not be able to attend a resident camp.
- Provides an opportunity fory outh to experience the Gospel.
- Values relationships. We keep a camp staff to youth ratio of not greater than 1:10.
This year’s theme is: “Boundless: God Beyond Measure” and is based on Ephesians 3:18-19 – I pray that you and all of God’s people will understand what is called wide or long or high to deep. I want you to know all about Christ’s love, although it is too wonderful to be measured. Then your lives will be filled with all that God is.”
What is the camp’s strength?
The strength of Amazing Grace Day Camp is God’s grace for all people as shared by the camp staff and volunteers.
The camp staff are caring, committed young adults who are trained to lead Bible study, worship, singing, crafts, and recreation. They are employed full time for the summer by Lutheran Outdoor Ministries of Ohio.
The volunteers are adult members of Good Shepherd who enjoy working with children. They come from all walks of life and each has gifts to offer. Each volunteer has been background checked and vetted by the church staff.
Lunches and Snacks
Lunches and snacks will consist of fresh, healthy foods. They will be kid-friendly with lots of fruits and vegetables available. No peanut products are used.
Cost = Free
Amazing Grace Day Camp is free. God’s grace is available to all at no cost. The Good Shepherd congregation supports this ministry through its weekly offerings. Free will offerings are accepted, but not expected.
We will follow whatever the current CDC protocols concerning making and distancing will be when camp occurs. Weather permitting, most of our activities will be held out doors.
