The report on the diocesan Department of Camps and Conferences was delivered by Rob Watson, director. He began with the outstanding figures of attendance in 2010. A record number of campers, 1,200, attended Camp Capers; almost 800 campers and families enjoyed family camp at Mustang Island Conference Center, and 40 adults and youth journeyed to Duck Lake, Colorado. Seeds were planted, sowed, and nurtured in each place.
The generosity of the diocesan family contributed to the financial support of over 300 campers and families. Contributions in the amount of $105,000 were donated toward the scholarship funds for campers. Watson noted this shows us two things: we are blessed to live in such a loving diocese and the need for assistance is overwhelming. So many campers would not have the opportunity to go without your help. You can listen to the entire report on the Council Live page.
