Our May mission of the month is Camp Lackawanna

 

 

CAMP LACKAWANNA – MAY MISSION

 

Founded in 1962, Camp Lackawanna is set in the majestic Endless Mountains of Northeastern PA along the Vosburg Neck of the Susquehanna River. Although many things have changed since opening in the summer of 1962 - our mission has always been upheld.

 

Camp Lackawanna is focused on connecting with creation and leaving the distractions of technology at home to break through the stress of daily life. Our Camp values comprise simple beliefs in physical activity, personal relationships, mental and spiritual growth, and adventure. Campers are guided through their Camp journey by staff and counselors that push them towards achievement and a greater understanding of themselves. During a camper’s time at Camp Lackawanna they are offered friendship, encouragement and adventurous memories that last a lifetime. Days are filled with enthusiastic activities, delightful meals with new friends, impactful worship, challenging activities & events, rewarding team endeavors, and relational evening devotions. This well-balanced daily camp life helps to strengthen campers to be more in tune with spirituality and their personal relationships with new friends.

This summer, Camp Lackawanna is partnering with our Presbyterian colleagues over at Camp Johnsonburg. We'll be hiring and training staff together, and putting on a great program that is strengthened by this partnership.

‚ÄčYou can expect a summer camp at Lackawanna that is safe, fun, and faithful, just like we've been doing since the beginning in 1962.

Our May Mission goes to the Presbytery for the Virginia Miner Scholarship Fund which helps with paying for camp for those who cannot afford it. This fund was established last year to honor Virginia Miner who had a heart for Camp Lackawanna. Virginia Miner grew up here in Susquehanna County.
