Summer Camp

As you plan your summer, make sure you include time at Camp Chippewa, our amazing United Methodist Camp in Ottawa, KS. This summer the theme is: Fearless Faith. There are many different weeks to attend so grab a buddy and get signed up! There are even two weekends for parent and child (those ages K-4th grade). Great way to experience camp with your child and prepare them to attend later alone. FUMC pays half the cost for our members – awesome deal. See Cindy Kienholz (620-342-6186) if you have any questions.
