Annual Grace Camp-Out—he reservation window is already open for next summer’s annual camp out at Long Lake Campground in the northern unit of the Kettle Moraine State Forest, just northeast of Kewauskum (about an hour drive from the zoo). This is not a group camp so everyone needs to make reservations for their own camp sites. This can be done at wisconsin.goingtocamp.com or by calling 1-888-947-2757. Reserve for any evenings July 23-25, 2020 with departure on Sunday, July 26—whatever fits your schedule and tolerance level! Ask for a site in the upper 900s loop (sites 922-967). Some now are already non-reservable, so if you can’t get one in the upper, go for the lower 900s nearby. Details on joint devotions, church service, etc. will be sent to you in July. If you decide to reserve a site, please let Drew Carter know which one you reserved at dcarter@gracedowntown.org.
