Summer Camp

In the business of life, it is easy to forget to re-charge and renew. Jesus often left the crowds and went off on his own. Summer affords us, hopefully the opportunity (or maybe the excuse we need) to take a break.
There is a gem hidden in the old gold-mining town of Julian, CA… Camp Stevens. “Founded in 1952 and grounded in Episcopal Church values and tradition, Camp Stevens provides a welcoming home for retreats, education, and adventure in the mountains of San Diego County. Camp Stevens inspires, challenges, and empowers personal, social, and environmental transformation.” Camp Stevens is operated by both the Dioceses of San Diego and Los Angeles offering year-round programs. As the camps website says, “ it is a retreat center that is designed to foster and deepen connections among people and between people and the earth”.
As a parent who is always trying to instill a sense of accomplishment, community and stewardship in the raising of my daughter, I can’t recommend the Camp Stevens experience enough! But summer camp is not just for kids-as a year-round retreat center Camp Stevens offers “Family Camp” as well as the opportunity for other gatherings where adult groups can get away from it all and renew, recharge and restore.
Finding our summer camp experience as adults is often difficult. Remember that there are always things that need to be done-including taking time out to simply BE.
A Celtic Peace Prayer from Antiquity
Deep Peace of the running wave to you
Deep Peace of the flowing air to you
Deep Peace of the quiet earth to you
Deep Peace of the shining stars to you
Deep peace of the shades of night to you
Moon and stars always giving Light to you.
Blessings, Jenifer+
