Mulford is hosting their annual event, Community Character Camp, from July 24 to 28 with new changes to come. This is a free camp at Mulford Evangelical Church. This camp is for children entering grades one through six and runs from 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Community Character Camp is a place for all children to come together and learn Bible stories, do crafts, eat food, and play games. Character Camp is put together by the help of members of the church who make the camp fun, efficient, and safe.

Mulford’s former youth pastor has been in charge of Character Camp since the beginning, but that pastor is no longer with Mulford. No one knew what was going to happen to Character Camp. Janet Bunn stepped up and took on Character Camp, bringing new changes to the table.

“I knew I had skills from my days as a teacher that I could use to direct Character Camp,” Janet says.

The only thing children need to bring to camp is appropriate shoes for outdoor activities. They will receive a camp T-shirt when they get there. There will also be a daily offering for a charity project that will be introduced on the first day of camp. This year the students will raise money for audio scripture prayers that missionaries can give to people to hear the Bible in their own language. Instructions to bring other things will be given throughout the week.

You can register for camp at the door a half an hour before, or you can pre-register online at http://www.mulfordchurch.org/character-camp.html or call (563) 263-7489 and a registration form will be mailed to you. Character Camp is not just a week of fun; it brings kids together, teaches them Bible stories, and gives them opportunities to try new things and build relationships with other Christians.
