Past Event Information:
Summer Camp - Our conference campground, Covenant Hills, in Otisville, MI has camp for kids of all ages. There are day camps for the younger kids and week-long camps for the older ones. Our church wants every child to be able to attend, so we help reduce the cost of camp fees. The church is able to pay $35 per child toward their 2017 camp fees. You can include the remaining amount due with your registration form (make check payable to Covenant Hills Camp) OR pay the camp directly at a later date. The deadline for turning in camp forms is SUNDAY, APRIL 23rd. There is a $10 savings off the cost of camp, if you turn in your forms and money due, in by this date. The brochures/forms are at the Ministry Board. If you are interested, please take one, fill it out and return it to the office or Jennifer Marino.
