Shepherd of the Cross Lutheran Church and Musserville United Methodist Church will unite this summer to hold a Christian day camp the week of June 13-17, 2023, at the Saulsbury Bridge Recreation Area in Muscatine.

Campers have the option to spend the night on Friday into Saturday morning, June 17, with pick up the following morning at 9:30 a.m. Overnight accommodations will be inside the climate-controlled lodge.

In collaboration with the Wilton and Muscatine Churches, various businesses will be presenting a program for children who attend. Presenters include the Muscatine Firefighters, the Muscatine Art Center, Kent Research, Rockn Boot Ranch, Steve Asmus Petting Zoo, and Harper’s Cycling among others.
