Mission Week 2021
GUMY is proud to announce and open up registration for summer camp and Mission Week for August 1st through August 6th, 2021 at Camp Hebron.

Scripture tells us in 1 Corinthians 16:14, “Do everything in love.” This summer, we will put love into action by serving our neighbors in Harrisburg and Halifax. The 16:14 Missions program is a week designed for youth group students and leaders. Groups will serve with various ministries Monday through Thursday, while enjoying traditional Camp Hebron activities each evening and on Friday. Programming will be organized by Camp Hebron staff; lodging and meals will be provided. We hope you’ll consider joining us this summer!

The program will run from Sunday 4 PM through Friday 4 PM. Transportation details will be announced closer to the date, since we are currently not using vans due to COVID. As of right now, students are responsible for $100 for the week; the price will not go up. Anyone interested should email Yvonne at gumy@gracehummelstown.org. You will then receive more information on how to register and pay. All those interested in attending should contact Yvonne by May 31st.
