Wilderness Way Girls Camp and Oakdale Baptist Church have joined together to offer the Hope for the Journey conference.

Show Hope’s "Hope for the Journey" conference seeks to encourage and better equip parents and caregivers meeting the everyday needs of children impacted by adoption and/or foster care. The adoption journey does not end on the day a child is welcomed home; in fact, the journey is just beginning. Children impacted by adoption and/or foster care have often experienced early attachment injuries related to loss, abuse, trauma, and/or neglect. There is hope and help, though. Whether you are in the adoption process, have welcomed a child home through adoption, or are loving and serving well children through foster care, you are not alone.

Dates/Time:  May 7th @ 7:00pm - 9pm  -  May 8th @ 8am - 4:15pm

Location: Oakdale Baptist Church

Space will be limited to 50 people, registration is required. The cost of the event is $10 per person to help cover the cost of materials and snacks/lunch. (Pay at the door.)

Amazon Smile

Many people opt for the convenience of online shopping these days and Amazon is usually your ‘one stop shop’ for many items that may be on your Christmas list.  This year, we encourage you to sign up at smile.amazon.com and designate Wilderness Way Camp School as the charity for Amazon to donate to!  When shopping this way, Amazon will donate a ½ percent of all your purchases to our Camp!  It may not sound like much, but if half of those on our mailing list would do this and spend a total of $500 through the Amazon Smile, our mailing list cost will be covered for a year or more!  Thank you for considering this possibility and…happy shopping!

Turkey in the Hole

(Pictures below!)

 

We hope you enjoy these pictures from our 'Turkey in the Hole' Thanksgiving celebration!  Thank you to our community who came out and supported us here at Camp.  We appreciate you!

If you've never experienced a turkey in the hold dinner before, below is a quick recap.

 

The night before, the girls and staff prepare the turkeys.  Each turkey is wrapped in multiple layers of foil and then wire tied to keep everything together.  First, there are small fires started and staff will gradually add larger pieces of kindling to those fires to build them bigger.  Soon, the smaller fires grow big enough to create one large fire and that's our cue to begin adding the larger pieces of wood!  Once there were enough coals, the turkeys were added and covered with hot coals, then finally covered with dirt to help keep in the heat.  They cook underground for about 12 hours and come out hot, savory, and delicious!  Hopefully these snapshots will give you a bit of an insight to how the turkeys are prepared for this event!
