How How! Alumni,

I am writing to encourage all of you to consider attending Alumni Work Week - Sunday-Thursday, May 22-26, 2016.

Calling all Camp Wanake alumni, which include former campers, volunteers, and staff. Mark your calendar now to help us prepare for the summer camp ministry. From help with office mailings to opening water lines to Woods, there are numerous opportunities for you to help prepare the way for God’s work in the lives of campers this coming summer. We need help with gardening, preparing homes-in-the-woods, trail maintenance, light carpentry and plumbing, mowing, and tasks in the office and kitchen. The alumni work week group will plan their schedule at the beginning of the week.

The group will stay in a retreat center and enjoy singing and fellowship in the evening. Meals will be served in the dining hall. An afternoon outing in the surrounding area is also an option. The week begins Sunday evening and ends on Thursday after lunch. To fit your schedule, please know that you are welcome to join us for only a portion of the week or for a day or an evening. Those who live within a short driving distance of Wanake have also chosen to spend nights at home but join us for meals and activities during the day and early evening.

Cost: Donations are appreciated in order to help with the costs of food and lodging.

Register on line or with the Wanake office by contacting Emily Cook at 330-756-2333 or

April 30th marks the end of Early Bird Savings! Keep encouraging your family, church family, neighbors and friends to register for summer camp. Wanake now offers paperless check inJ.

Wanake hopes to see you for the 70th Anniversary Celebration, Saturday, September 3, 2016. You are also invited to register for the entire Labor Day weekend and experience all that Wanake has to offer.

Keep praying for Wanake, the development of the 70th anniversary Bible study curriculum, recruiting and hiring of summer staff and year-round, part-time staff, and marketing for summer campers 2016.

Peace and Joy in Jesus,

Julie Lautt
