Mountain Climb-a-thon, Open House & Awards Dinner

Saturday, May 13 2017
Streamside Camp

 

The beautiful Pocono Mountains has been the perfect home to the Streamside Camp ministry for most of the past 75 years. Climbing Big Pocono continues to be one of the most memorable activities in our campers' week. To celebrate the heights we have attained over the years, we will be staging a Mountain Climb-a-thon in Big Pocono State Park followed by an Awards Dinner at Streamside. Participants will embrace nature, burn calories, meet old and new friends all while generating funds to underwrite the cost to send children to camp.

 
Climb Big Pocono

 

Nature Joe will be leading this climb to benefit Streamside camperships. Consider climbing Big Pocono (elevation 2,132 feet) with us and asking others to sponsor your climb on behalf of the children and teens needing financial assistance to attend a life changing week of camp at Streamside.  Use the Registration & Sponsor form to sign up your sponsors and register for the event. On-line registration is open at https://goo.gl/forms/2CPAEwFv6guxXG693. We are suggesting a minimum of $50 in sponsorship to participate in the climb. Each person completing the climb will receive an “I Climbed Big Pocono” t-shirt, water bottle and towel. Those raising the most sponsorship will be recognized at the Awards Dinner.

 Not able to climb?  You can still join us for the events of the day including the Open House and Awards Dinner.

Dear person who sent me to camp, thank you so much. I really had a good time. I have made lots of new friend and I will miss them all very much. I have learned new things too about joy, courage, prayer, and faith. I will cherish this moment at camp. Thank so much and God bless you
