COVE — Situated north of the path of totality for the Aug. 21 solar eclipse, the Ascension Camp & Conference Center is looking at hosting people as a fundraiser for the camp.
The Solar Eclipse Experience will feature lodging (cabins, recreational vehicle sites or tent camping) and meals for guests. The camp is working out details to provide a program that will include star gazing and astronomical study. In addition, there will be opportunities for worship and spiritual meditation.
A ministry of the Episcopal Diocese of Eastern Oregon, the camp is nestled in the foothills of the Wallowa Mountains. For more information, including costs of the solar event, call 541-568-4514. For more about the camp facilities, visit www.coveascensionschool.com.
