From the Youth Minister, February 2021 At this time, we are planning to continue gathering virtually for Sunday School & Youth Group through the end of the program year in April 2021 unless otherwise announced. We realize this is not ideal for most families, and we thank you for your continued patience. However, we do have some exciting news for students, so keep reading to hear about an upcoming diocesan-wide Youth Group Zoom and FDL Summer Camp 2021 updates!
Students in grades 5-12: Mark your calendars now! We are having a combined youth group Zoom gathering with students from around the diocese on Wednesday, February 24 from 6:30-7:30pm. Please be sure to check your email for more details. I know this means some of our younger students won’t be able to participate, but this is in keeping with age & grade appropriate content and having some events worth waiting for. :)
From the Youth Minister, February 2021: FDL Summer Camp will, God-willing, be offering in-person sessions this summer if safe enough to do so. If this is indeed the case, we will be heading to Waypost Camp in Hatley, WI (east of Mosinee and southeast of Wausau). It is one of three camp locations that make up Crossways Camps, an ELCA camping ministry with offices located in Appleton, WI. Our group will be the only one on-site during our time there, and there are lots of cool new activities and program opportunities available to use, including a low ropes initiative course, gardening/composting, and bread making.
At-home camp activities will still be made available for families who are unable to join in-person, yet still want to be connected. If conditions become such that it is not safe to offer in-person camp at all for 2021, we will return to the Camp @ Home model from 2020.
COVID-19 precautions and safety measures will be put in place, and we are working with Waypost Camp, Crossways Camps, our diocesan COVID-19 Task Force, and guidelines set out by the American Camping Association to help provide as safe an environment as possible. Registration, volunteer staff applications, and more details will be available in the coming weeks. Session dates & ages are listed below. Updates will be shared via official diocesan channels – diocesan website, FDL Summer Camp webpage, diocesan Facebook page, @diofdlyouth Instagram account, and Scattering Seeds newsletter.
Senior Camp (completed grades 9-12 & high school 2020 grads): June 20-26, 2021 Middler Camp (completed grades 6-8): June 27-July 1, 2021 Junior Camp (completed grades 2-5): June 27-July 1, 2021 Kinder Camp (ages 4-7 with adult): July 1-3, 2021 --- Camp @ Home2020 materials may still be found online via the camp website.
