    So glad to see summer programs for youth. We have similar things here in Victoria BC with local companies like volunteering to help. Love it!

    I think worship camps are pretty awesome to get family and friends all together, I remember we do a <a href=“”" rel="nofollow">">car detailing</a> one summer, and it was a huge hit. I really enjoyed spending the time with my friends and family then, and was looking forward in doing it many many times more!
