Spirit Camp was a great success this year! So much fun was had while we explored and learned about Native American culture. The kids’ transformation project was drum making. They did the whole process from soaking the rawhides, stretching them over the drums, threading them, and they even made the beaters. It was amazing to experience this with the children and it taught us all about patience! Along with the drum making, the activities included learning about spirit animals, medicine wheels, trying Native American food (beef jerky was the favorite!), lots of arts and crafts, and a field trip to Fountain Rock nature center. Thank you to all the volunteers who helped make this such a great week! Planning for next year has already started! :)
The Youth Group Gatherings on the 3rd Fridays of each month for UniTeens and YOU’S will continue through the summer. They are continuing lessons on geocaching and will even be trying to find some.
In July, they will be meeting at Ruby Tuesdays to enjoy dinner together and then head out for some geocaching.
Sunday school continues through the summer as well. Substitutes are needed for a couple of Sundays so please let Jamie know if you would like to spend some time with the kids one Sunday.
Mark your calendars for August 23rd! It is Unity’s Service & Picnic in the Park and the children will be a part of the service.
