CAMP MISSION EDGE:

Camp Mission Edge was a great week! Our 5th and 6th grade campers learned about the BUMC Co-Op and helped to stock the shelves, they learned about BUMC’s mission work in Honduras, and they made videos to send to children in Honduras, they learned about the prayer labyrinth and then worked on weeding the labyrinth, they set-up for the Burke Gives Back school supply party, and they ran games at the party. It was such a fun and meaningful week! Keep an eye out for more opportunities to SHARE with our community coming soon.
