1. The Siebert Family Weekend camping
We are inviting a smaller group of students to go camping for the weekend. Would you like to join us? We have room for a few students. Our family is going camping for two nights Friday, May 25 and Saturday, May 26 at Rainbow Valley campground (near Snow Valley near our home) in Edmonton. We'll relax, play games, maybe do a short hike, possibly sing and have Bible discussions, cook together, etc.
We would start with supper at about 6:30 PM on Friday. (We could pick you up at Southgate Mall LRT station at 6:15 PM).
You would sleep in tents so you would need to bring blankets or sleeping bags, etc. (We have the tents). There are nice bathrooms with showers there.
The cost would be $30 for the weekend for everything. We will leave on Sunday morning to attend our church gathering. You would be welcome to join us, or we could drop you off at the train on our way (9:30 AM).
