The Camp Spark program expanded this winter, adding a retreat specifically for young adults on January 5-7 at the United Methodist Canyon Camp facilities near Hinton. About 50 people attended, mainly from the Heartland and Crossroads Districts. The event included a bonfire and worship with preaching by Adam Shahan, associate pastor at Moore-First. Housing was in Hardt Lodge. Young adults filled Canyon that weekend, according to Neil Tate of the Conference Camps staff, as the facility also hosted two other young-adult groups.
