Life is certainly asking all of us to stay flexible these days, isn’t it? Our routines are changing, and sometimes those changes can bring feelings of isolation and separation.
At Aldersgate Camp and Retreat Center, we often say that our guests and campers can “disconnect to reconnect”. That phrase came about in part because our cell service is so spotty out here. Folks literally had to disconnect.
Right now as we practice social distancing, our kids are home from school, and more of us are working from home; our sense of disconnection can feel more profound.
From these challenging circumstances was born the Aldersgate Virtual Day Camp! We began the program on March 16th and the current plan is to run for three weeks. Twice a day, one of our amazing volunteers is leading a 15-minute activity. Drawing on the amazing talents of our summer counselors, deans, and other volunteers; we are providing devotions, story times, yoga wiggle sessions, science experiments, camp fire singalongs, crafts, service projects, and more!Watch the Videos!
