Benwood camp's first year begins

Tuesday, June 13, 2006

Campers gather around the flag pole on the first day of camp at the Friendly Benwood Youth Camp on Friday.

The first camp ended Monday with a talent show. The first session was for ages 9 through high school. There were 110 campers this weekend. As many as 300 campers can attend a given session.

"This is the first year in the new campground," said Assistant Director Mike Pell.

Four churches are the primary camp sponsors: Benwood Mt. Lebanon, Friendly Grove, Mt. Etna and Pleasant Valley.

The camp is operating with two temporary structures this summer. One tent will be used for a kitchen and a second tent will house all other activities.
