Summer Camp with Impact 2818: Outdoor Ministries

In addition to lots of fun, summer church camp can also provide transformational experiences in the life of a child. St. Mark’s is looking to coordinate summer camp sessions this summer to help children build community with others from our church while also meeting many other children from across the state. Information on individual and family camps in Indiana is available at Early registration closes 4/15/2022.
