S'Mores Family Camp
Camp Adams (Molalla, OR)
August 25-26, 2018
Calling all families with children ages birth to college! Join us for an awesome time of fun, fellowship and family in the forest at Camp Adams on August 25th to 26th. We'll swim in the creek, hike/walk/breathe, have field games, arts & crafts, worship, good food, and of course....campfire with songs and s'mores! This year Annie Tarter will lead our youth group on a night hike...wear close-toed shoes. Come for the day or stay for the night. This is a great way to unplug and connect with other families. Register now at: http://uccportland.org/family-camp.
We will stay overnight at the KOA campground in Bandon, Oregon, then volunteer with Washed Ashore. (See https://washedashore.org/ to learn more about their "art to save the sea!"). This trip is chaperoned by Annie Tarter and Parkrose UCC.
A donation ($25.00 per attendee) is requested to offset fuel, camping fees & meals. RSVP by July 31 to firstname.lastname@example.org.
About the event: What feminine part of yourself did you have to destroy in order to survive in this world? At what point does femininity become synonymous with apology? Who hurt the people who hurt you? Alok is trying to figure it out. Join us for an evening of comedy, poetry, and performance featuring opener and MC Shea Diamond!
