Winter Camp at Westview-on-the-James is December 6 - 8 for anyone 7-15 years old. In addition to exploring Advent themes and Westview’s Winter Classic relay races, the 7-11 year olds will tackle the challenge course, archery, and ultimate kickball, and will make Christmas cookies/crafts.

Cost is $112, and Duncan families may wish to carpool to make participation easy for all! Registration forms are near the church office or click here to download a Winter Camp registration form.
