Buffalo Gap Presbyterian Encampment hosts Palo Duro Presbytery-sponsored summer camps
Buffalo Gap Church Camp is Going Online!
In an abundance of caution in the Covid-19 pandemic and in lieu of an in-person event, the church camp of Palo Duro Presbytery has decided to offer an online camp experience for summer of 2020 in partnership with Buffalo Gap Presbyterian Encampment!
What does this mean?
We will not have campers come out to Buffalo Gap this summer. Though we LOVE seeing your campers in person, we want to ensure the health and safety of our campers and camp staff during this pandemic. Because we don't feel like it is really summer without seeing and being in community with your camper, we are bringing camp to your home! Each camper will receive a "camp in the box" in the mail and have access to online live bible studies, live small group games and conversations, craft tutorials, and worship services.
What's in the box?
Boxes will have all the supplies needed to make each day's camp craft, a song book for worship, a camp t-shirt, and a bible study workbook.
What will each day look like?
A bible study will help us kick off each day. This study will be followed up by a small group time with one of your camper's favorite counselors. Both of these will be live Zoom events. Craft videos will be made available for campers to work on in the afternoon along with daily challenges to get campers moving and/or spending time with loved ones. The day will finish with an online worship service in the evening.
What do I need to participate?
Each camper or family will need a computer or mobile device that is compatible with the Zoom app and that has a camera. If you do not have access to this technology, talk to us out here at the camp to troubleshoot solutions and/or talk to your local Presbyterian congregation for help.
