Today, Tuesday, August 7th is the last day of Rock Point Camp for the season. This morning we spent sometime with Bishop Tom Ely sharing stories. Jordan got a care package and put on quite a show for us complete with background dancers and beatbox! At lunch Ben was chosen scraper for one last time this season! When you have a chance please share your Rock Point Summer Camp experiences with friends and neighbors!!
This is the view from St. Michael’s Chapel in the Kerr Building at Rock Point! It has been an amazing summer. The “Holy Rhythm” of Rock Point Summer Camp is attending services four times a day. Morning Devotion before breakfast; Eucharist or Noon Day prayer before lunch; Evening Devotion or Eucharist before dinner and Compline before bed.
Here is a picture of the young people of the High School Camp pointing at the bell. The Bell which hangs in the tower of the chapel building is on loan to us from the Naval History and Heritage Command. It is a ship bell from the USS PONCHATOULA (AO148). Every summer we send the Dept of Navy a letter and pictures letting them know the condition of the bell.
Today the amazing young people worked around Rock Point. Some stained the outside of Butterfield, some painted the bathroom stalls in the cabins, some cleaned the Craft Cabin and the Rock Point closet and others weeded and weed wacked the front of the conference center. 14 hardworking, good natured young people plus a wonderful staff!!
Tonight we all headed over to the Food Shelf in Burlington to help them prep and serve the Sunday evening meal. The first shift picked up the food and got it ready to serve.
The second shift came in and served and cleaned up. I am very, very proud of this group of young people and their counselors. A job well done!!
This morning we traveled to St. James in Essex Jct. for church. Thanks to Brian, Heather and Bonnie for helping with transportation. This afternoon we are heading to the Food Shelf to help serve the Sunday night meal.
Extended High School Camp began on Friday night. We all went to a Lake Monsters Game. The Lake Monsters lost but the fireworks after the game were fabulous! A game of ‘ninja’ was played in the parking lot while we were waiting for rides home!
