An open house is set at Good Earth Village on Sunday, April 30, from 2 to 5 p.m.

The local camp and retreat center invites all ages to explore the 500 acres, participate in camp activities, and meet some of the staff that will be working at camp for the summer.

“We cannot wait to introduce you to our incredible faith-based summer programs,” said executive director Dianna Parks. “During your time with us, you are sure to hear about welcoming others to your table, the gifts that you have to feed our communities, and the abundance God provides.” 

The Good Earth Village summer camp serves youth from completed grades K-12, with day options and overnight programs. Younger campers can come for one or two nights, and older campers come for half-weeks or weeklong camps based on their availability.

“We know that families have many demands and busy schedules so we have worked diligently to create options for every family,” said Parks. 

GrandCamp, where grandparents bring grandchildren of any age, and Family Camp, which is for families of any size, shape or demographic will also return.

“Good Earth Village recognizes that ‘family’ can be defined in myriad ways, and we welcome them all,” said Parks. 

The open house is a free event. People attending will tour the grounds, participate in songs and games, sample camp food from the new food service team and visit the newest cabin in Old Town.  The first 50 attendees will receive Good Earth Village sunglasses.

The mission of Good Earth Village is to explore God in creation, grow faith in community and engage the world as followers of Christ. Campers will learn about their God-given gifts and how to celebrate their uniqueness in the world. Camp is highly interactive, engaging, and fun, said Parks. Payment options are available for every budget and camperships are available. 

Good Earth Village is located at 25303 Old Town Drive, Spring Valley. It is accredited by the American Camping Association.
