Last year’s camp at Taidnapam was a blast! This year, we’re headed to the coast for a weekend at Grayland Beach State Park. Our goals for church campout are simple: relax, eat well, and hang out with friends.
This year marks the 3rd annual campout. In 2013, we camped at Mayfield Lake, enjoying swimming, canoeing, campfires and card games. Last year’s stay on Riffe Lake brought out the fisherman/woman in young and old alike. We boated or floated the lake, taking in the amazing scenery we’re blessed with here in the Pacific Northwest.
Mark your calendars for the last weekend in August, and contact the church office to reserve yourselves a spot for this not-to-be-missed event!
