July 31-August 2, 2020
Family Camp is a free weekend for everyone in our Mission Covenant Church family to enjoy time together at Covenant Park Bible Camp in Mahtowa, MN. You can bring your own camper or tent or stay in Covenant Park’s cabins.
Arrival time is anytime after 6:00 on Friday. Because of COVID, Family Camp will look quite a bit different this year. Families will have the option to bring their own food (and grill, cooler, utensils, etc.) as the kitchen at camp will not be available. The other food option available is that families can purchase camp meals ($8 per person per meal, $4 per meal for children ages 4-10, children 3 and under are free, $9 per meal for any special dietary needs). We will need to have 25 people sign up for a meal in order for camp to be willing to make the meal, so we would appreciate it if people could sign up soon. Meals that you would like camp to provide must be paid for ahead of time. The cost of lodging is covered by Mission Covenant Church.
If you are bringing a family dog along, they are allowed on the grounds but not in any buildings. (For those in cabins, a dog is allowed in a kennel in your cabin.) Please pick up after your dog.
A few camp rules that have been brought to our attention: Covenant Park has a quiet time from 10 p.m. - 7 a.m.. This is in order to be respectful of the neighbors who live nearby. Covenant Park also is an alcohol and drug-free camp. Fortunately, Covenant Park is not a bike-free camp because a lot of the kids love to ride bikes at Family Camp! Make sure to pack your beach gear as the waterfront will be open the whole weekend.
Please discuss with your children a few guidelines before arriving at camp: Not Littering, Waterfront safety, Bike riding etiquette, etc.
We will have a waterfront baptismal service at 6:30 p.m. on Saturday evening as well as a worship service on Sunday morning (hopefully outdoors) at 9:45 a.m.
As in previous years, you are more than welcome to come out and join us for the day on Saturday or for either of the services.
If you are coming out for the weekend or for part of the day, please register on-line and pay for the meals you would like camp to prepare for you.
On Sunday, we will need to be out of the buildings by 2:00 p.m., but we can stay on the grounds until 4:00 p.m.
Space is limited, so sign up soon!
