This Epiphany, youth from the Episcopal Diocese of San Diego are invited to spend a weekend at Camp Stevens connecting to their faith, each other, and the world around us. The theme of this year’s event comes from Philippians 4:4-9, “Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! Let your gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God,which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me—put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you.”
Sometimes life can get hectic, and it can be easy to get stressed and off course. This weekend we will look at where we want to be, how we keep God at the center of all that we do and all that we are, and how we can support others to do the same.
Highlights of the weekend will include the high ropes course, hiking, small groups, campfires, and an awesome service project. There will be friends new and old, amazing camp food, and more laughter than we can possibly imagine.
