We are excited to invite all Redwood Camp Summer Staff Alumni to a special reunion at Mount Hermon on July 30–31, 2016! Mark your calendar for an inspiring, encouraging and fun time to reflect on and celebrate the many ways God has transformed lives through the ministry of Redwood Camp! In June our planning team came together to dream, plan and pray for this reunion. Our team includes: Lee and Susan Martin, Cindy Peterson, Lynne Lundy, Sue Mellis, John and Ann Jenks, Dick and Barb Dosker, Ron and Cheryl Taylor, Dawn Fredrickson, Dave Peterson and Trevor Van Laar.
This will be a wonderful opportunity to connect with old and new friends who have shared in the blessing of serving at Redwood Camp. Our plan is to begin with a lunch together on July 30 and conclude with a morning of sharing and worship on July 31.
If you know other Redwood Camp staff alumni, please tell them about this reunion! We would love to see alumni from every decade of Redwood Camp’s history! For more information and ongoing updates this year you can make a friend request on Facebook for “Redwood Camp Staff Alumni.”
It is my prayer God will use this reunion to bless everyone who attends. May this gathering be filled with the joy, laughter and fun that we all experienced during our summer staff days! God used my summers on the Redwood Camp summer staff to shape my life and faith in a powerful way. (Boomer–1975, 77 & 79) Looking ahead, I believe this reunion will be another opportunity for God to speak to me and shape me in the context of being in this special place with the Redwood Camp community.
Please pray with us and ask God to make this a great reunion and even more, a time where His blessings overflow in our lives and the ministry of Redwood Camp is strengthened. Continue also in your prayers for Mount Hermon and the ministry of Redwood Camp. There are some amazing possibilities and dreams we are exploring at this time to enhance Redwood Camp in order to position us for many more decades of great ministry.
Lynne (Romper) Lundy sums it up well:
“When I think back on my years at Mount Hermon, both on summer and full time staff, it’s my two summers at Redwood Camp that made an indelible mark on my heart! I dare say, for all of us who’ve worked there, Redwood is a part of who we are. Redwood is home.
Redwood Camp gave me an opportunity to plant seeds for His kingdom every week and to love on kids. It was where my relationship with Christ was stretched as high as the Trinity Trees, and where I made life–long friends through focused ministry, shared worship, hilarious skits and unceasing laughter! Let’s make some new memories together–worshiping at Victory Circle, enjoying another pancake breakfast on the meadow, and perhaps even a skit or two! Come home!“
