Sleep Away Camp at Good Earth Village
Grades 2* - 8 (completed)
*2nd grade stays for two nights, all others may stay five nights
Times: 3:00 pm on July 28 to noon on August 2
Where: Good Earth Village in Spring Valley (Southeastern MN, near Lanesboro)
Staff involvement: Joan Hartman will be joining the kids at camp for most of the week. She'll be staying in the same building as the youngest group.
Information Meetings: Please plan on attending one of the following sessions: Wednesday, February 13 at 6 pm OR Sunday, February 24 at 10:15 am. If you wish to receive a church gift to offset the expense of camp, attendance is required.
Age groupings: In an effort to acclimate kids to a sleep away experience, G.E.V. places the youngest kids in the rooms that have the most creature comforts (Log Lodge). As kids age, they transition to more typical accommodations. Check out the websites for pictures.
Each group has a “swing grade”. For these kids, you decide which group your child should join based on his/her friend group and desired accommodations.
Grades 2-4 (2 nights, we suggest the beginning of the week July 28-30): Log Lodge
Grades 3-5 (5 nights): Hilltop Cabins
- Grades 5-8 (5 nights): Old Town
Cost: GEV uses tiered pricing. That way, more families are able to afford the camp fee. NOTE: If your family has participated in a fundraiser and attended an informational meeting, there are church scholarships available.
- 2nd-4th grade, "Settlers" 2-night stay
- 3rd-5th grade, "Pathfinders" 5-night stay
