Camp Registration Open

Happy Thursday, Allisonville!

I have an exciting announcement for y'all today! The Indiana Disciples church camp registration is open! The Region sent an email out yesterday.

Be sure to register before May 15 for the early bird discount. The cost for the 6-day camps is $440 per camper, the cost for 3-day camps is $250 per camper, and Allisonville will cover half the cost for every Allisonville member who registers for camp!

If you need additional support, please talk to me about it and we will make it work for you, I promise. The Region also offers scholarship support. Church camp is such an incredible experience and I can't wait to spend some time with y'all this summer at camp!

And, if you are interested in serving as a counselor, please let me know and I can put you in touch with the right people for the camp you are interested in.

This year is a little different, and I have mentioned this to many of y'all, but if you do not know- we are only doing camps at Camp Bedford this year. The Region has decided to end our partnership with the Geneva Center and to focus on Bedford. This is a GOOD thing. This means that all the middle schoolers at middle school camp will be in the same place, all the MADD campers at the same place, all the Explorers at the same place, and so on. And from a director's perspective, this makes recruiting counselors infinitely easier.

There is one new camp that will be hosted at Geist Christian Church's Promise Road campus, and you can read about that down below. It is called Mission as Justice Camp and focuses on putting justice into action.

Camp Bedford is just a lovely place and I am excited for y'all to experience it! I know that several of us went to the Geneva Center and I do know that change might be hard. I promise that camp will still be just as amazing at Bedford. Everyone who went to Geneva will just be going to Bedford now, so you'll still see your friends AND you will get to make new ones as you meet the campers who have gone to Bedford. This is gonna be a really cool and exciting summer for camp. If you have any questions about this change, please reach out to me.

Over the years, Allisonville has had a strong showing at camp, and I hope we can continue to grow that. If your kid has never bee nto camp before, now is the time to try it out!!

Below, you will find descriptions of ALL the camps that are happening this summer in Indiana as well as links to register for them. If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to me ANYTIME! I love camp, and I know you will too (if you don't already)! I will once again be directing the High School Camp.

If your child/grandchild/a kid you care about has never been to camp, I really do hope this is the summer they try it out. Definitely reach out to me about it and I am more than happy to talk to y'all about it! Our kids who go every summer likely would agree with me when I say that church camp is an amazing experience. Invite a friend and experience the magic of church camp!

Peace and blessings,

Josh is DIRECTING this one.


Your copy should address 3 key questions: Who am I writing for? (Audience) Why should they care? (Benefit) What do I want them to do here? (Call-to-Action)

Create a great offer by adding words like "free" "personalized" "complimentary" or "customized." A sense of urgency often helps readers take an action, so think about inserting phrases like "for a limited time only" or "only 7 remaining"!


Mission as Justice Camp: July 14-20

Hosted at Geist Christian Church, Promise Road

Ages 16-18

The Mission as Justice camp is an experienced-based, learning-focused camp experience. The camp will be for ages 16-18 due to the nature of the information and possibility of age restrictions for some of the activities planned. It will be limited to 20 youth and 5 adults. This year’s theme is exploring the intersection of food justice and racism. Along with the regional Reconciliation program, the Outdoor Ministries team will engage local food pantries, Gleaner’s Food Bank, Society of St. Andrew, Bread for the World, among others.
