Mission Day with Valley Youth House at Camp Fowler
Saturday, June 10th
10 a.m. – 2 p.m.
Camp Fowler is one of the healing and helping programs of Valley Youth House. At Camp Fowler, children and teens build confidence and self-esteem, heal from past trauma, build trust towards peers and adults, and develop communication and leadership skills. Join us for a day to go and serve for Valley Youth House, at their Camp Fowler location in Orefield. A Day of Serving is planned for Emmaus Moravian and Lutheran Church of the Holy Spirit members and friends to go and serve. As part of our day, we will learn about Camp Fowler and how it impacts lives. We will also spend time cleaning cabins and getting the camp ready for summer programs!
Please contact Carolyn Carter or Linda Wisser to sign up or FMI.
