Over 500 were in attendance on Camp Day this September to celebrate Beacon's 50th Anniversary!
Camp was buzzing with activity this past September as we opened our doors to over 400 community members, past and present campers and their families, members of the media (a local radio station), and more! Young guests enjoyed a bounce house, trampolines, a live reptile exhibit, face painting, tours of the camp grounds, crafts, swimming and boating, and Iron Man/Woman competition, exhibits with a camp memorabilia, and a dream tree where all were invited to share their hopes and prayers for camp moving forward.
The camp grounds were in tip top shape, and were dotted with yellow-shirted volunteers cheerfully serving and helping to direct newcomers. A delicious meal was served under the warm September sun, and the fun made its way to the beach for an afternoon of boating, swimming and more at the waterfront.
For many in attendance, this was their first time visiting camp. We hope that they'll be back this summer to experience all that camp has to offer.
While there was a sense of nostalgia as we reflected on 50 years of God's goodness, there was also an overwhelming sense of excitement for what's in store for Beacon. We look forward to the next 50 years and beyond as we continue to offer a place where lifelong memories are made, deep friendships are formed, and where kids and adults alike come to know Christ in a deeply personal way!
