WinstonSTRONG in conjunction with Lutheran Disaster Response is planning a FREE Gearing - Up - Renew U! Day Camp for youth ages 14-18 in Winston County. The goal of this camp is to help youth affected by disaster build strength to face life's hardships. They learn to do this by dealing with their fears, experiencing relief from stress, connecting with God, and building practical preparedness skills through music, art, and recreational activities. The program will be held May 2, 2015 8:30 am - 4:30 pm at First United Methodist Church located at 300 West Main Street, Louisville.

The maximum number of youth for the program is 50, so please register early by phone. Registration can and will be accepted at the time of arrival, but spaces are limited. The priority will be youth directly affected through damage to their home, but since disasters affect communities, other youth from the community will be welcome as space allows.

Please call Stephanie Black at 662.312.5685 or Stacey Parvin at 662.694.1619 for more information, or if you would like to register your youth in order to attend. Deadline for registration is April 28, 2015.
