Hello everyone! We’ve had a great school year, now it’s time to think about summer plans.
Our summer camp is 06/12/2017-08/25/2017. Sign-up begins 05/15/2017. Cost of camp this year is a total of $110 per week. To register for a week, the cost is half your weekly tuition, $55. If you pay for all 11 weeks upfront, $605, you receive a 20% discount on the weekly tuition, $44 instead of $55. Siblings receive a $10 discount on tuition. The drop-in fee is $25 per day.
You will receive a weekly schedule of field trips every Friday to help you plan for the upcoming week’s activities. Please bring lunch every day unless otherwise specified. You may leave sunscreen, a pillow, and blanket at the center for your child to use each day. Extra spending money is optional on field trip days.
This summer we are doing themed days, rather than themed weeks. Themed days are as follows:
Your child is encouraged to bring their electronic device of choice and will have opportunities throughout the day to play on them. All devices need to be hand-held, no gaming consoles please.
We will explore God’s creation by taking trips off campus.
Thursday– The “Arts”
Your kids will experience the “Arts” through music, dance, literature, culinary lessons, architectural structures, engineering, and pottery.
Friday– Water play
We will go swimming or to a water themed play area every Friday to give the kids a nice cool down to end the week.

The Board of World Mission is responding to the aftermath of Hurricane Matthew in cooperation with Global Partners and Local Congregations
As Hurricane Matthew passed through the Caribbean and up the coast of the U.S. the BWM was in contact with global partners and local congregations to monitor the effects of this violent storm. Following the appeal sent out last week for funds to help us respond, the BWM wanted to follow up and communicate the information we have received so far, and the specific requests for assistance known at this point. Please note that in each case listed below there are immediate relief needs, but also longer term ongoing needs to support rebuilding and re-development. Any gifts given to the BWM and designated “Moravian Disaster Response” can be used for both immediate and longer term needs. Please consider making a donation with this general designation to help us best respond to the needs communicated by our partners.
Haiti has been the most impacted of our global partners. The BWM asks for your prayers for the churches in Haiti as we have learned of the death of at least four member of the church there due to this storm. Many church members have lost their homes to the winds and flooding, and church buildings have been destroyed. Please visit www.moravianmission.org/haiti to read a letter from the Chairman of the Moravian Church in Haiti explaining the current situation and need for assistance. The Board of World Mission has sent an initial donation of funds to assist with immediate needs and will look to assist with specific rebuilding projects moving forward.
Much of the damage in Cuba was concentrated on the Eastern end of the island in the area of Baracoa. Our closest Moravian ministry in Guantanamo (located Southwest of the hardest hit area) reported some damage to homes and minor flooding. We are staying in communication through the Moravian Church in Cuba, and in partnership with the Armando Rusindo Mission Foundation to reply should specific needs arise.
Jamaica was luckily missed by the strongest parts of the storm. Heavy rained caused flooding in the streets in some areas, which mostly receded fairly quickly following the storm. Br. Paul Gardner has offered updates on this situation, as well as helping to connect the BWM with information on the ongoing situation in Haiti, as this area is a mission area under the supervision of the Jamaican province.
East Coast of the United States
Emergency response has continued in several areas due to rising rivers leading to further flooding following the rains of Hurricane Matthew. The BWM is in touch with our ecumenical partners who will be coordinating volunteer opportunities on the ground. These opportunities will arise after the initial emergency recovery phase has been completed. The BWM may be in need of some volunteers to drive our MDR tool trailers to the areas of need in North Carolina or Florida. Please contact us if you may be willing to do this. We also welcome volunteers willing to help manage the details of willing volunteers and connecting them with specific opportunities given the many locations impacted by this storm. The BWM will be using the funds we receive to help support these recovery efforts and would love to pair the funds with volunteers on the ground. Make a Donation Donations to help support MDR as it partners in the recovery can be made online by going to moravianmission.org/give. Please use the online giving form, and in comments designate the Donation for “Moravian Disaster Response”. Donations within the U.S. can also be sent directly to the Board of World Mission at the address below. In the memo line of any checks please write “Moravian Disaster Response”. Board of World Mission PO Box 1245 Bethlehem, PA 18016 Canadian Churches may send donations to the following address in order to receive full tax credit for your donation and they will be sent along to the BWM: Moravian Church in Canada 600 Acadia Drive SE Calgary, AB T2J 0B8 NOTE: We are requesting funds be designated for general disaster response to allow the BWM to respond with the flexibility needed in this ongoing situation. All funds under this designation will be used for disaster response.
