SNOW CAMPS
A snow camp can still be enjoyable even without snow. At least that is what we experienced this year! With little snow accumulation, the tube run was not operational, but fortunately the pond was frozen. Junior High Snow Camp had 115 youth and sponsors in attendance. Senior High Snow Camp welcomed 87 youth and sponsors and Young Adult Snow Camp had 20 attendees.  
 
“I really like the speaker’s way of making us think about practical ways of living mercy, justice, and humility.” – Senior High sponsor
 
“I appreciated the time and space for relaxation and rest, time for fellowship, and of course the food!” – Young Adult participant
 
“I appreciated the openness from everyone. I felt touched by God.” – Junior High youth

YOU'VE BEEN SPOTTED!
We spotted Mark Bechler (Golden, CO) and his RMMC cap. Well, actually we spotted Mark’s scarecrow wearing his RMMC cap. Mark was a long time board member and volunteer at RMMC. He sent us this picture to show off his family’s decoration outside their home. Thanks, Mark, for re-purposing RMMC apparel, even after their useful life!
