WPC and Camp Henry are very proud to host the ministry of Camp Sunshine, a specialized summer camp providing people ages 12-50 with developmental disabilities the opportunity for fellowship and recreational activity in a safe, caring and inclusive environment. In order to make this week possible, we are looking for volunteers to help with moving belongings, relieving staff, troubleshooting technology, and encouraging campers and volunteers alike. If you'd like more information, please contact Rev. Katherine Baker (katieb@westminstergr.org) or Cindy Terlouw (campsunshinemi@gmail.com) or Director Jake Jacobs (jake@camphenry.org).
