Look Back: Water Heroes Camp

What a week! Memorial is pleased to have hosted 21 kids, some members of the congregation, and some not, for a fun filled week of learning about WATER! Many of us take water for granted - we turn on the tap or the spigot and out it comes. We go sailing on it, or swimming in it, and sometimes we fish. But most of us are not well versed in how the water cycle really works in the modern world. 

If you are nodding your head and saying, "yep, I am one of those people", we have good news. There are now 21 children in the neighborhood who can help you understand it better. 

Over the course of the week the kids built "swamp water filters" and models of plumbing systems; they stenciled storm drains and learned from elders and experts - many of whom are members here at Memorial. They swam, and played, and had a lot of fun while learning lessons that will serve them well for the rest of their lives. 

Water is a finite resource, and it is up to us all to ensure it's continued availability.
