Each morning, participants of our program in Buffalo will be dropped off at our site in their neighborhood: Good Shepherd Episcopal Church, located at 96 Jewett Parkway, near School #54. Breakfast will be the first order of business and a morning of reading, games, fun and relationship building will follow. Participants will join with junior counselors in eating lunch, and then it’s outside for recreation, games, fun and crafts. Some days will also include other enrichment activities – field trips!
Camp runs from 8 AM until 3 PM, from July 6th until August 12, Monday through Friday.
For the junior counselors, the fun continues after the campers go home. When the campers leave, the junior counselors have some down time and time to shower, and then they’ll gather together with the Assistant Camp Director and process the day. They’ll get set for their evening activities, many of which will be off-site. They’ll see the sights of the Buffalo Niagara Region and come back to bed down at the overnight site, our Diocesan Ministry Center.
