In just a 13 days, Faith Lutheran will send a group of young adults to Camp Penuel in Costa Rica to help run a kids camp for the first week in January. You’ll hear so much more about Camp Penuel and the mission trip after the group returns. For now, we invite you to take a look at the December 2012 newsletter from the camp and learn more about the mission destination to which the group is traveling.
Included in the newsletter is information about new 2013 projects at the camp, including:
- a tree house,
- remodeled basketball and tennis courts
- a memorial garden
- advancement to the camp’s farm to improve the dairy herd and clean living conditions for the animals. Cheese sales have been successful and the camp is looking to make the garden more productive and to lower their food expenses.
You can also read a special greeting from Paul Bernhagen, who runs the camp, and you can learn about the “Camperships” $20 scholarship program for campers.
