Where God closes a door he opens a window. Due to COVID concerns, unfortunately, MSMC in Newburgh is cancelling all Summer events, including our week of Camp from July 18th – 24th (*this includes cancellation of our Dance and Basketball camps)

God has poured grace on our need as usual. The open window is Lake Champion: a beautiful, resort-quality, Christian-run camp in the Catskills. (Please click here to see what this facility offers). However, they can only offer the camp to us in the 3rd week of August. So, we will run two camps almost simultaneously. We will split the camps by age to offer more personalized formation and experiences.

Read the complete informational message from Ryan Young here.

Action Items: 
All current enrollees of MSMC must indicate what they would like to do on this form.
All current enrollees of Lakota must acknowledge that if they are in 10th - 12th grade they will be transferred automatically to Lake Champion with this form 
VOLUNTEERS: Since we will be running two camps at the same time, we need your help now more than ever! Please sign up and bring your friends with you! Share this flyer with your friends, campus ministry, post it at your Church etc!
