Summer Camp Staff Commissioning and Buffet Dinner

Summer Camp 2019 is right around the corner and as a partner with this ministry, you and your family are invited to a special gathering where you can meet this year’s Summer Camp Staff.

June 9th is a special day here at Black Rock Retreat.  On that day the Summer Camp Staff will have completed two weeks of intensive training.  The next day begins with the first week of summer camp.  To celebrate this day of transition, Black Rock Retreat is hosting a special Commissioning Service where you can meet these young people and participate in a special prayer of dedication for them and all the children who will participate in camp this summer.  In addition to meeting the 2019 Summer Camp Staff, you might also meet some former Summer Camp Staff and hear a story or two about the impact that Black Rock Retreat has made in their lives.  If interested, you can also arrive early for a special camp tour with our Executive Director and Development Director.  Below is a schedule of events:

Sunday, June 9
