York College to host summer camps and Bible teachers workshop
While students will be mostly absent from campus, there will still be plenty of activity at York College during the summer months.
May 20-26, the campus will host RoundUp, a Bible camp for older adults. The program will consist of Bible classes, devotionals, academic lectures from professors, and activities. Participants will stay in the college residence halls and eat in the cafeteria, making the experience like a mini-term as a YC student.
June 1-3, a group of alumni from 1960-1969 will enliven the campus while taking a walk down memory lane. They will revisit their old haunts and see all of the improvements to campus, while enjoying time to catch up with old friends. Did you graduate from YC in '60-'69? Plan to be there for the reunion!
Soul Quest, June 10-16, is one of the biggest events of the year, drawing nearly 700 people to campus. The annual Bible camp for teens is a whirlwind of activity, as the young people attend classes and participate in faith and friendship building events.
The theme of Soul Quest this year is “Ignite,” based on the fiery imagery in Jeremiah 20:9: “But if I say, ‘I will not mention him or speak any more in his name,’ his word is in my heart like a fire, a fire shut up in my bones. I am weary of holding it in; indeed, I cannot.”
On July 28, York College will host a workshop for those who teach Bible classes for children and youth groups. The day-long event will have four tracks with expert presenters for each age: cradle roll, pre-school, elementary and youth.
The workshop is hosted in conjunction with the nationally-known Christian Education Association of Fort Worth, Texas. The work shop will consist of intense and practical sessions that have been developed especially for today’s Bible class teachers.
July 26-28 will be the 4th annual Alumni and Friends Work Days at YC. This is a time when volunteers pitch in to beautify campus with painting, landscaping, and other small repairs and projects. Food and housing are provided by the college as volunteers enjoy at time of service, fellowship, and fun. Interested in joining us? Contact organizer Scott Eckman '79.
