Save these July dates for exciting summer events!

  1. Youth Work Trip: July 16-20

A youth work trip at the Pittsburgh Project is set for the week of July 16-20.  This week-long, overnight mission trip is available for all youth grades 6-12.  This is the only full-group trip planned for youth group this summer.

  1. Day Camp / Jr. Day Camp

Please mark your calendar for the week of July 23-27 for Day Camp and Junior Day Camp.  Bower Hill will partner with Crestfield again to offer Day Camp, which is for completed 1st – 5th graders.  Junior Day Camp is for completed preschool – Kindergarten.  Details about how you can volunteer to help and/or contribute supplies will be sent in the coming weeks.  Our middle and high school youth are needed to volunteer to help with Jr. Day Camp.

  1. Crestfield Summer Camps

It’s that time of year when families are looking for camps for the summer.  Crestfield Camp and Conference Center is about an hour north of Pittsburgh in Slippery Rock, PA, and they have several new, exciting camps to offer children from completed grades 1-12.  The full summer camp brochure is posted on the Youth bulletin board outside the kitchen.  For more information, go to and click on summer camps.  In addition to financial aid assistance, Crestfield offers early registration discounts if paid in full before April 30.
