The Naming Project Summer Camp is for 14-18 year-olds or those who have completed 8th-12th grades who are of any sexual orientation or gender identity or expression who are interested in discussing and understanding sexuality and gender in terms of their own spiritual journey and are excited to spend time with other teen campers and staff while canoeing, swimming, hiking, singing, doing arts and crafts.
Theme: Believe the Truth
This world tries to tell us a lot about who we are and what we need. It tries to tell us that we are not enough, that we need more to be whole or to be loved by God. However, the truth is that we are created, redeemed, and sustained in the love of God. This week, we will explore the beautiful truth about who we are, and now we are called to reveal the truth of God’s love to the rest of world.
Campers will experience large and small group conversation, personal quiet time as well as campfires, crafts, swimming, games, and summer camp fun in the beauty of God’s creation!
Megan is a child of God and Director of The Naming Project. She passed away unexpectedly but peacefully in her sleep, September 19, 2017. Megan was a pastor to several congregations and campus ministry settings. She was a pastor, a friend, a sister, an aunt, and the owner of three English Springer Spaniels. Megan received her MDiv degree from Trinity Lutheran Seminary in Columbus, OH and her BA from the University of South Florida. Megan loved to read, laugh, ask questions, tell truths, and spread Christ’s love to everyone she met.
Due to the outpouring of donations following Megan’s untimely death, we are establishing the Rev. Megan Jane Jones Memorial Scholarship. This scholarship will cover a full camp registration and transportation costs to attend. One scholarship will be awarded each year and the decision of The Naming Project will be final. To apply, download the simple application and return to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We recognize some campers will be flying in from across the country and will be paying for travel and camp; we also recognize the cost of camp may be prohibitive to some families—our goal is to make camp affordable to all, and we will work to secure a place for all interested youth. The Naming Project does not want to turn any camper away because of a lack of funds. We will provide other scholarships and financial assistance to campers who request it. If applying for a scholarship please send an email to email@example.com with a simple request and statement of need.
The Naming Project Camp is supported by the generous donations of organizations and individuals like you! Donations can come in the form of a general donation, or a scholarship.
