March Camp Noel Porter Board Update

March Camp Noel Porter Board Update

by Camp Noel Porter Board of Directors

The Camp Noel Porter Board met on March 3rd, and was glad to hear that many previous Camp Noel Porter campers are signing up for Camp Galilee this summer, and that our counselors are applying for positions there. Plans were made for Stuart Campbell, executive director of Camp Galilee, to give a presentation about Camp Galilee on Sunday, March 13th at Trinity Episcopal Church in Folsom. All prospective campers, counselors and staff members were invited to attend. Bishop Barry Beisner and Bishop Dan Edwards, of the Episcopal Diocese of Nevada, sent a joint letter to our campers describing this summer’s shared program at Camp Galilee.

A working group, composed of members of the Noel Porter Board, the diocesan Board of Trustees and others, has been created to discuss diocesan summer programming and youth formation. This group met to discern the principles that would guide any decisions that are made, and emphasizing, in particular, the following:

· Training youth in discipleship and empowering them for leadership
· Protecting the continuity of their spiritual development through diocesan programming
· Providing a diverse range of experiences to develop their spiritual life

The working group is planning to begin a conversation with youth and youth leaders from around the diocese. Please stay tuned for more information about this work.
