Hurricane Katrina cuts Camp SUMA plans


Camp SUMA (Seashore United Methodist Assembly) in Biloxi will offer a limited camping experience this summer.

The facility’s available campus space is housing volunteers throughout the summer season. Plans call for two weeks of camp for 40 alumni who live on the Gulf Coast. Many of these campers’ families lost everything and almost all of the rest had major damage.

Anyone who would like to help to provide a scholarship for one of these campers may send the gift to Camp SUMA, Seashore United Methodist Assembly, 1510 Leggett Drive, Biloxi, MS 39530. For information call Connie Helmuth at 228-990-0055 or 228-436-6767.
