Camp Emmanuel celebrates 10 years

Camp Emmanuel, at Emmanuel Methodist Church in Antioch, recently celebrated its 20th year with speakers, field trips and lots of fun. Despite the large numbers of campers this year, Camp Emmanuel has not always been as well known as it is today. Camp Emmanuel began in 2007 when three community leaders felt it was important for children to continue learning throughout the summer. The camp provides a safe haven for children ages 3 to 12 in the surrounding area. Camp Emmanuel focuses on reading, math, arts and crafts and physical education.
