PENDLETON - Camp Creation provided four days at Westminster Woods for 66 students from 13 area churches.
The Presbyterian-owned camp and conference center near Meacham was the site for the truly ecumenical experience. Camp leadership was provided by volunteers from the Presbyterian, First United Methodist, First Christian and Episcopal churches. Older youth served as volunteer assistants. Students' time was divided among sessions with music, crafts and sciences in addition to time spent at the fireside listening to Bible stories.
Camp Creation focused on the creation story in the first chapter of Genesis with a different parable from the New Testament each day including the Good Samaritan, the Widow's Offering, the Miraculous Feeding of the 5,000, and Seeing Jesus in Others.
The camp ended Thursday with a late schedule and a 5:30 p.m. barbecue for students' families and a 6:15 p.m. presentation demonstrating what students learned during the week.
