Archives Camp Guggenheim opens with week one art offering

May 15, 2019

SARANAC LAKE – It’s almost camp season! Camp Guggenheim summer session begins June 30, and campers in that first week will notice a change from previous years.

“We’re doing a pilot program in week one to see if there’s interest in a camp experience that focuses on engaging in our faith through art and nature,” said Tom Semeraro, director of Youth Ministry for the Diocese of Ogdensburg. “Week one campers will be able to choose whether they want to participate in the traditional offerings – rotating through a variety of morning activities – or the art and nature offering.”

Those participating in the art pilot will spend the morning activity portion of the camp day creating and discussing art as an expression of faith.

“There will be opportunities to paint with water colors and draw in nature, discussions about artistic expressions within the church, work on written word or poetry, and photography,” Semeraro said. “All materials will be provided.”

If the program is successful, Semeraro said it could become a regular offering at Camp Guggenheim.

Beyond the week one pilot, Semeraro said campers will see both new and returning staff members at this year’s sessions. Staff biographies appear in today’s edition of the North Country Catholic and will continue to appear in the next several editions.

Campers, and those driving them to their designated sessions, will also notice improvements made to the camp access road.

Registration is still open for the 2019 Camp Guggenheim season. To register, go to rcdony.org/youthcamp/camp-guggenheim.
