An important part of the ministry of Special Session is showing our campers hospitality. One way that we do that is by welcoming everyone to camp with a welcome pack. This includes some basic items that campers need at camp, as well as a prayer letter from someone in the diocese who is praying for each camper while they are at camp.
EVERY WELCOME PACK SHOULD INCLUDE:
Links are provided as examples. No specific brand is necessary.
NOTES: + Please put each “pack” into draw string back pack + For gendered items (like deodorant) please include 5 male and 5 female packs, and label if possible + Please make all toiletries full sized. + Prayer letters are an opportunity to tell a Special Session camper that they are loved, and to wish them a happy week of camp. These letters can mean the world to our campers. We are not able to give camper names in advance, so please write to “Dear Camper.”
For Special Session 2020, we are looking for 13 churches or church groups in the diocese of Alabama to create 10 welcome packs, to serve a total of 130 campers. If you have a group that is interested in creating welcome packs, please email Lindsey Mullen, firstname.lastname@example.org. We will make arrangements to pick up your welcome packs by June 1st.
