Welcome to Camp @ Home! We are so excited to be sharing this experience with you. We are also a bit nervous—this is our first time creating online content in this way and we plan to grow and change as time progresses and we receive feedback from you. We want you to be involved and feel connected! This idea originally came from a desire to share more about our camp culture with our camper parents, campers, and staff. Once we determined that we would need to suspend in-person camp, this seemed like a great way to create fun, at home experiences that would deepen the understanding of the why. Why do we do what we do at camp? Why is it important? What does it matter? These are some of the questions we are hoping to expand upon this summer with Camp @ Home.
Each Sunday we plan to release a blog post that outlines a specific part of our camp culture and then will challenge you to create that piece of camp at your home. Throughout the week, we will continue to post devotions, recipes, and camp history that all tie in to that week’s theme. Some of these will be posted on YouTube, Facebook and Instagram, but all of the content will be posted on our Camp @ Home webpage, www.altamons.org/camp--home. We plan to do this for 9 weeks, starting today and ending the week of August 2-7. Families can participate in as little or as much of the content as they want—it’s all about what works best for you. Each week will have a specific challenge that we are asking families to record—either by photo or video—and submit to us. You can do this by e-mailing your submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org. While we are asking for submissions to be turned in by Saturday at midnight for a given week, as long as you have your submissions in by Monday August 10th at 10 AM you will be entered into the drawing to win 2 free nights of RV camping at Alta Mons. Furthermore, we know that families are busy, so we are only requiring that you submit for 7 of the 9 weeks to be entered into the drawing. So, if you need to skip a week or 2, no big deal. As we receive submissions, we would love to share your photos and videos with our followers on social media, but we will always ask for your permission before posting.
So, go check out the first blog post on “share” and see what you think! More content will be posted throughout this week, so be checking our website. If you have questions, please do not hesitate to reach out. We here to help support you as Camp @ Home happens!
Sending you lots of love and hope,
