(June 5, 2020) Camp Bytes goes live next week.
Working with our volunteer Camp Directors and Counselors, the Commission for Children, Youth, and Young Adults has reimagined our summer camp program as our Nation, and the world, lives through the Covid-19 pandemic.
Chi Rho Camp Bytes (June 9-11) kick off the camp season. Each day between 10am and 12pm, counselors and campers will gather for an online camp that will have a live element. Campers must be registered to enter camp and, just like our physically in person program, we cannot accept same day registration for any of our digital camps. Similarly, Camp Bytes for Junior campers, CYF campers, and Discovery campers will be offered. Visit the Families & Youth section of our website to learn more and register today.
Just like our physically in person camp program, each day of digital camp will include: play, prayer, study, worship, and service.
We are excited to announce that campers who registered between February 1 and May 2 for traditional summer camp will receive a Camp Bytes t-shirt in the mail this summer! Yes, if you listed a t-shirt size in your registration for traditional summer camp, the Region will send you a camp shirt FREE. We are able to provide Camp Bytes and the t-shirt through the generous gifts by donors like you to the Region’s Camp & Conference Resource Endowment Fund throughout the years. This fund is managed by the Oklahoma Disciples Foundation.
You didn’t register for traditional camp, but want a shirt? No worries. You can purchase a summer camp shirt through an online store later this month, and that purchase will support the Region’s program ministries for children and youth which includes summer camp. Maybe you don’t want a shirt, but still want to support our program ministries for children and youth. Thank you! Visit our Givelify page to make a contribution today and select children and youth ministry. Yes, you could also mail a check to the Region. If you have other questions, please contact Rev. Michael Davison, Associate Regional Minister.
Yes, Camp Bytes is a bit more screen time this summer, but it will connect you to campers across our Region who want to connect with you. So, don’t wait! Time is running out to register for Chi Rho Camp Bytes. Registration for Chi Rho closes at 3pm, this Sunday, June 7.
