The Faith of Abraham
Workbook Study & Campout 2018
Campout Date: July 4-8, 2018
Location: Richard, Saskatchewan, Canada
RSVP by May 27, 2018
Workbook Due Date: 23 June 2018
The workbook will be provided for download in 3 parts, all three of which must be completed before June 23, 2018 (Workbook is mandatory for all camp attendees, including brothers and sisters). The workbook will probably take 1-2 months of study to complete, so you must register no later than May 27, 2018 to allow time to complete it.
Please don't underestimate the size of the study. This is large workbook that must be started as early as possible. Last workbook was estimated at 40 hours to complete.
Note that it should be finished by June 23, 2018. If you have any problems with the workbook, or have trouble finishing by the June 23 deadline, contact an organizer IMMEDIATELY. We don't want the uncomfortable situation of turning away a camper with an incomplete workbook.
If you don't plan to attend the campout, but you're doing the workbook, let us know so we can get you a t-shirt for the Abraham study. RSVP and deadline are the same as for campers.
The Study Campout is a study weekend based on the workbook and targeted at ages 16-25. The workbook must be completed by everyone attending prior to the study (including older attendees). The idea of this campout is for folks who have done in-depth personal Bible study on Abraham, to meet up with others who've done the same to discuss what we've learned and share enthusiasm for the lessons from the topic. While we've planned a few talks and workshops, the completed workbook on the study topic is the center of the campout. The camping setup will be primitive and rely on the skills and work of the campers.
Ingredients will be provided for groups to cook meals over campfires.
Wild camping! Accommodations are tents (no RV's or car camping) brought by the attendees. Everyone will be divided into camp groups of (probably) 3-4. Each group is given an area to develop into a campsite of 2-3 tents and a cooking area. Campers in the same group may choose to share tents. Please bring sleeping bags and mats or cots. Another open tent provides study space for discussions and talks.
Everyone is expected to get involved and make the camping projects and group activities (e.g. setting up tents, tables, campfires, cooking, etc.) a source of camaraderie. This should be a great opportunity for developing stronger Bible study habits and building some strong relationships around the truth and practical life activities.
All plans are according to the Lord's will and subject to adjustment.
If you're flying or otherwise having a hard time getting camping gear, let us know and we'll try to arrange for you to be provided with some.
If you would like to attend, but are having trouble making travel arrangements, please let us know as soon as possible.
