Dear Woodleaf Campers and Parents,
We are so excited about our upcoming trip to Woodleaf on July 5-July 11. We are going to have seven
days of high adventure, laughing, meeting new people, hanging with friends, great food, incredible
music, and an opportunity to learn about God in a beautiful setting with 350 other campers. We know
that your week at camp will be unlike anything you’ve ever experienced! To ensure a great time,
please take a moment to look over the important trip information in this packet.

4:30am SHARP on Sunday, July 5th for departure. Please bring luggage, all paper work and registration $ and do not be late. We don’t want to leave you behind! We will return to Orange Ave. thCommunity Church very late on Saturday, July 11 at approximately 1:00 AM. Please make necessary
arrangements for transportation.

be plenty of food, snacks, and fun provided by the camp.
