by Rhonda Miller Sunday, July 17 to Friday, July 29
Would you like to have a “family-friendly” camping experience this summer? Did you know that our church, New Zion, owns a cabin on the campgrounds at Stoutsville Camp close to Circleville? That’s right! The cabin is open to anyone from New Zion who wants to come and stay. Why not plan to bring your family down to camp and spend a day, a night, or even a week during Stoutsville Camp Meeting the last two weeks of July. There is NO CHARGE to come to the camp for your family, and we have a wonderful, cozy cabin on the grounds! OH, and did I mention, you don’t even have to pay for meals! All food for our cabin is donated.
This year camp officially begins Sunday evening, July 17th, and runs through Friday, July 29, 2016. Our church’s cabin will be open beginning Sunday afternoon, July 17th. We will have a light Sunday supper, served at 5 p.m. and dessert following the evening evangelistic service that starts at 6 p.m. on Sundays.
If you are not familiar with Stoutsville Camp, it is a non-denominational family church camp. There is a children’s Vacation Bible School from 10:30-11:30 a.m. and 1:30-2:30 p.m. There are youth activities four times a day (10:30 a.m., 1:30 p.m., 6 p.m. and Ring Circle at 10 p.m.) (Youth must be going into the 7th grade to stay without parents. Children younger can stay with a parent). Afternoons hold recreational activities and tournaments like volleyball, soccer, basketball, and softball. There are also youth fun days, a youth band, a youth talent show, and special speakers.
Adults also have activities together like Bible studies, videos, and guest speakers. Each evening at 7 p.m. there is an evangelistic service, which all age groups attend, where guest evangelists come in from all over the country to speak.
Stoutsville Camp is a chance to join with other Christians in worshiping, playing and forming new friendships. Camp becomes a wonderful experience as we play, eat, socialize and worship together.
We are hoping that you can set aside a day, night, or week to come down and spend time at the camp. Additionally, if you can sign up to help keep the New Zion cabin open, please give Rhonda Miller a call (740-862-4921). In order to keep the cabin open, we need people willing to help prepare meals and oversee the routine at our cabin (including monitoring any youth who might be staying). We would love to have the cabin open all two weeks. If you have any questions about Stoutsville camp, please feel free to speak with any of our long-time Stoutsville campers such as Bob & Linda Wilson, Jared Bowers, Linda & Lauren Crouse, and Brenda Hanna.
Please begin praying for the camp, the workers, the youth, the evangelists, and everyone attending camp. Be sure to visit the camp website for pictures from last year’s camp. Go to www.stoutsvillecamp.com. The campgrounds are located in Stoutsville, Ohio at 11515 Main Street.
