Summer Camp Sponsorship Application
With the closing of Kirkwood Camp, we are hoping that children and youth can attend another nearby Christian camp. We are recommending Camp Johnsonburg (www.campjburg.org) in New Jersey.
We believe attending a Christian summer camp can be life-changing, and in this time of COVID, we are glad to offer financial sponsorships to Kirkwood families in Presbytery of Philadelphia and Lehigh Presbytery.

Native is about identity, soul-searching, and being on the never-ending journey of finding ourselves and finding God. Kaitlin offers a unique perspective on these topics. In this book, she shows how reconnecting with her Native American roots both informs and challenges her Christian faith. Kaitlin B. Curtice is a citizen of the Potawatomi Nation as well as a Christian, public speaker, and poet. She travels around the country speaking on faith and justice within the church as it relates to Indigenous peoples. Curtice is a monthly columnist for Sojourners, has contributed to On Being, and Religion News Service, and has been featured on CBS and in USA Today and the New Yorker for her work on having difficult conversations within the church about colonization. She is the author of Glory Happening: Finding the Divine in Everyday Places.
