Hello From Camp Garwood!!

by Chris Polk, Camp Superintendent
I missed the paper deadline last month. So let’s begin with our camp numbers. We had 357 campers total with over 50 visitors each day and over 90 visitors on Wednesday. If you missed camp you will want to know that the new dorm is completed and was used camp week. We are extremely thankful to everyone who helped with funds, construction and moving in. The best news of the week are the 11 professions of faith!

It sounds like it was a great week, I hate I had to miss it, but thankful I made it to every evening service. Bro. Shawn was
a great blessing it sounds like everyone enjoyed the messages and spending time with him through the week. It was also a blessing hearing Bro. Tom Foster preach the closing message on Thursday night.

By the time you read this the Paint ball retreat will be past. But the Men’s Archery retreat will only be a week or so away. Scheduled for September 29th-30th we hope you will plan to join us. These retreats are always a lot of fun. Whether
you shoot a bow or just come for the fellowship I promise you will enjoy the weekend.

The BMA of MO annual meeting will be hosted at Camp on Oct. 28th. Bro. Ben Kingston will bring the annual message. The meeting begins at 9 a.m. and we will have lunch catered by the Rockin’ Mobile Cafe. Watch the camp Facebook page for more details. We
will have the dorms open and available for anyone wanting to come over on Friday night. There will also be coffee and donuts available on Saturday before the meeting. We hope you will come to the meeting and also come see your campgrounds at Garwood.

Our 2018 camp July 30th – August 3rd will be here before we know it. Bro. Michael Treat from Central Baptist Church in
Conway, AR will be our speaker. It isn’t too soon to begin praying for him and our camp week. We have several things planned
for 2018. Please be praying for myself and the committee as we begin working towards a great camp!
