Dear Memorial Community
We are gearing up for our second summer camp, Baltimore Water Heroes, which will be held from August 20 to 24th in the Lower Parish Hall. This is an interfaith camp for the children of our parish, neighborhood, and city. We hope to build an understanding of the importance of water conservation and how it relates to the health of Baltimore watersheds and urban communities. For more information about the church camp, look at the camp information sheet on the MEC website.
We need your help to make this camp a success! Please consider how you may contribute by any of the following:
- · Contribute to purchase of camp supplies This can be done by going to Amazon.com and looking for the Water Heroes Memorial Episcopal Wish List by search under my wish lists (Amy Rial). Have supplies sent directly to the Church. Directions on how to do this follow this email. Alternatively, you can make a donation to the church with Water Heroes in the Memo of your check.
- · Volunteer at the Camp We need several volunteers daily who can help at drop off (8 am to 9 am) and extended care (3 to 5:30 pm). Volunteers will play games with the kids, do crafts, sing, etc. We also need volunteers who can help implement camp activities during the day from 9 to 3 by helping our junior counselors and camp facilitator. Let us know if you would be interested in going to Lake Roland on August 24, or facilitating activities on another day.
- · Host the kids at the Bolton Hill Swim Club Camp Fees will cover 4 visits to Bolton Hill Swim Club the afternoon of August 20, 21, 22, and 23 from 1 to 3 pm. If you are a member of the Bolton Hill Swim Club, please be our host by signing our group in at 1 pm. This has been discussed and agreed upon with the Bolton Hill Swim Club. MEC will pay for the campers
If you have any interest in providing any support, please send an email to Amy Rial at firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you so much and God Bless!
