CAMP ALDERSGATE BROCHURES ARE HERE!
Camp Aldersgate’s 2014 Brochures have arrived and are available in the Narthex. Aldersgate has three new programs this Summer: Discovery Science Camp, Global Village Camp, and Connections Weekends, where campers get to stay at Aldersgate for more than one week of camp - without going home in between. Of course, you can still come to the old favorites like Camper’s Choice programs, that give campers choices of over a half-dozen pro-grams for their week. Our most popular week, Living Arts, culminates with a camper performance of The Sound of Music this summer. Finally, in Family Camp programs, including both week-long and weekend experiences, families get to experience Camp Aldersgate together. Grandparent & Me is always a fun time for grandparents and grandchildren to spend some quality time together. Aldersgate’s pricing is based on a three-tier system, helping to ensure that all families can afford camp for their children and youth. Camperships are also available. Visit www.campaldersgate.com or call Aldersgate at (401) 568-4350 for more information.
