About Grace Family Camp
“Grace Camp” is a summer session at Camp Marshall free-of-charge for children, entering grades 3-8, with a parent in prison.
With COVID 19 vaccinations not currently available for students under the age of 16 we have decided to open up GRACE camp to families with a qualifying student. This can include Guardians and or Foster Families.
This will be a "FAMILY CAMP" style camp. We anticipate this happening this year only so it represents a GREAT opportunity to try something brand new.
What you might expect with a GRACE "Family Camp"
Camp activities for individuals of all ages including archery, fishing, outings to wild horse island, Family "challenges" daily worship, arts & crafts, delicious meals, and plenty of time on the lake!
When is it? Sunday, June 20 - 25th.
Families may sign up by the day or by the week.
Plan to arrive between 1-4 on your scheduled arrival day.
Be packed out of your cabin/space assigned after breakfast so we can prep your space for the next person. (once you have packed out you are most welcome to stay for worship.
How does it work?
This program is free for qualifying families.
COVID 19 Modifications:
Everyone on camp will practice Non Prescription Interventions with the goal of preventing the spread of COVID 19. Below are a number of interventions that have proven themselves effective in camps across the US.
Families will be assigned their own cabin
Each family will be assigned their own restroom to use during your stay.
Persons using their camp trailer will need to use trailer restrooms.
Everyone will practice wearing masks.
Families will be assigned to a table for dining / indoors or out.
Programming will be modified to be outdoors whenever possible.
Camp will look to innovate evening program to allow for social distancing.
Formation: Each morning and evening: We begin with Worship at 9:00 a.m. and wrap up with Christian formation - each evening from 7 - 8 p.m. Adults participate in a daily small group study & discussion "Adult Time" while children engage in faith formation activities in "Kid's Club".
Planning your day: Connect with our Concierge team who can help your family make plans to enjoy everything the camp has to offer. While we have programs we can offer we take care to see what you want to do and then do our best to make it happen.
Evenings at family camp bring activities ranging from "outdoor theatre", Outdoor Talent Shows, to a relaxing evening at the waterfront. We close each evening around the campfire.
Financial assistance is available to all families to help make the week affordable - simply complete the scholarship application and return it to our registrar at the diocesan office after you have completed your online registration with deposit.
At Grace Camp, we spend our time swimming, worshiping, stand up paddle boarding, singing, fishing, painting, stargazing, making s’mores, hiking, laughing, and enjoying the beauty of Flathead Lake. It is an opportunity for these children to spend a wonderful week on the lake with our talented and fun-loving staff.
