Registration open for Wimberly House summer camp

The Wimberly House is gearing up for a week filled with fun and learning.

The local ministry’s annual summer camp is slated for July 23-27, and organizers are excited for what’s in store this year.

Nancy Minyard, who serves as the executive director of Wimberly House Ministries, said the camp’s activities will once again be in the hands of Lynn White, who took the reins for the first time last year and put on a great event.

“We changed the structure of camp last year, holding it later in the summer and cutting it down to one week, but the participants had a ball,” Minyard said. “Lynn is wonderful with them, and I have no doubt this year will be even better.”

In addition to indoor fun, including crafts and music, White has a variety of activities planned for campers, including visits from Harmony Grove Dairy Farm, the Burke County Sheriff’s Office, Purification Cellutions and the Boy Scouts of America.

“We’re going to make homemade ice cream and learn how to read a compass,” White said, adding that they’ll use their newly acquired compass abilities to go on a treasure hunt. “And of course on the last day we’ll have water slides and bounce houses and all sorts of surprises.”

Following tradition, camp will begin each morning with devotion and end with a healthy lunch. Participants will learn team building skills while interacting with new and old friends.

Wimberly House summer camp is open to rising second through fifth grade students and will be held from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. each day. The cost is $20 for the week, and scholarships are available for children whose families are unable to pay. To register or for additional information, contact Minyard at 706.551.0526.
