What Makes Camp Fowler Special?

April 15, 2014

Have you seen the commercial by the Thai Life Insurance company? It's a delightful series of vignettes showing a young man doing ordinary acts of kindness. The narrator at one point asks us: "And what does he receive for all of this?

Nothing." 

I think of what happens at Camp Fowler. I'd like to promise you that your child will receive higher grades at school, make the soccer team, or be 15% more attractive. But what does your child receive from engaging in a week immersed in kindness, adventure, challenges, faith, trees, and laughter?

"Nothing."

But your child will experience emotions. As the video reminds us: 'she will reach a deeper understanding. He will feel the love. And a world made more beautiful.'

And that's better even than making the soccer team.

See you at camp.

New Life This Lent

March 5, 2014

Thirteen participants took part in our pre-Lent retreat hosted and lead by Mary and Daniel Carlson. The retreat, one of four seasonal, intentional, spiritual retreats offered this year, encouraged each person to ponder their walk with Christ this Lenten season. Mary, a spiritual director, and Daniel, pastor at First Reformed Church of Schenectady, provided gentle and thoughtful guidance during this three day retreat. 

Our next seasonal retreat is scheduled for April 29 - May 1. Details can be found here

Had Enough Snow Yet?

February 5, 2014

 

What a great winter we are having!!! This is a winter "like in the old days!" Lots of snow, cold, and ice make things like fires, hot chocolate, and gathering with friends even better!
There is still time to sign up for our Annual Winter Camp. We've already got 20 youth from all over New York state coming to stay in the Chi Rho House and play in our woods and on our lake. 

Why don't you join them?!

See you at camp! 

the Great Room

The Women's Group from First Reformed Church in Scotia are our first guests who get to enjoy the newly remodeled Chi Rho Great Room. This completes the renovations of Chi Rho which included remaking the bedrooms, dining room, "Bear Den" downstairs, and the kitchen/food storage.

Big thanks to all the volunteers who worked tirelessly throughout the holidays and to Mark and Jim: two of our favorite staff. You guys can go home to your families now! :)
