Greetings friends,

Thank you so much to the many supporters who bring meals, companionship and supplies to the camp.  And, we are also grateful to the generous hosts for the camp, currently Northshore United Church of Christ and upcoming, Bear Creek United Methodist Church.  Below are updates for the camp; please share with others.

Volunteers needed for Camp Move on August 25-26:  The camp’s next move is from Northshore United Church of Christ to Bear Creek United Methodist Church, both located in Woodinville.  Many volunteers are needed to help the campers move.  Please help us by:  stopping by during the move days for a few hours and spreading the word by sharing the attached flyer with others from your community.   Help is needed with a variety of activities, particularly loading/unloading trucks and setting up community tents.   If you have any questions or to let us know you can help, please contact:  Karen Tidball, or  Jim McCorkle

 Camp needs: Towels (shower size), coffee, creamer, water (large jugs such as 1 to 5 gallon), Clorox wipes, pillows, bars of soap, mouthwash, batteries (C, D, AAA), foil, and Versamats (for the bottoms of camper tents).   For the move:  duct tape (4 rolls, prefer multi color), large packs of 12 in zip ties, heavy duty contractor bags (50), black sharpies (several), 1 ¼ inch wood screws (200).  If you can provide any of these items, please bring them to the camp at Northshore United Church of Christ, 18900 168th Avenue NE, Woodinville

Meals:  Thank you to those who signed up to bring a meal via the meals calendar during the past couple months.  The campers greatly appreciate having a balanced meal at least once a day.   If you can help in August, that would be awesome since there are several openings on the meals calendar.   Short on time?  Picking up ready to go food from Costco or the grocery store works fine!   There are about 25 men and women at Camp Unity now.

Thank you for your caring and thoughtful support for Camp Unity and I hope to see you at the Camp Unity move!
