Summer Camp Videos
Watch any one of eight promotional videos now online and be “Inspired” to become an Oklahoma church camper this summer. Camp registration is now open.
The Conference’s Camp and Retreat Ministries developed the videos so every church can share the word about the variety of camping opportunities available to all age groups.
These YouTube videos show camp deans and campers speaking about why they love camping and the difference United Methodist camping has made in their lives.
Go to http://www.youtube.com/OkumcCommunications and view the playlist specifically for camps. The videos are short, ranging in length from 20 to 40 seconds.
If you do not have the capabilities to download the videos for your use, contact the camps office, 405-530-2017, to request a DVD by mail. “Inspired” is the Camps theme for 2014.
Easter, the most important day of the Christian calendar, offers an opportunity to tell the most important story ever told. This year, the celebration of Christ's Resurrection is April 20 in the Western calendar. Eric Seiberling of United Methodist Communications offers ideas to help churches share the good news.
