Ocean Springs St. Paul schedules second Winshape camp


Ocean Springs St. Paul United Methodist Church is hosting its second Winshape summer day camp experience at its East Campus.

Open to the community, it offers a staff trained by the WinShape Camp organization based in Rome, Ga., and a variety of activities for children who have completed first through sixth grades.

The game is set for 7:30 a.m. daily June 15-19.

“We were one of 27 cities to participate in the first year of WinShape’s off-site camps,” said St. Paul Children’s Minister the Rev. Leanne Burris. “This unique experience seeks to connect children to the new C3 (Camps Connecting Communities) program, sponsored by Chick-fil-A, that combines sports, arts, Bible study and worship.

Activity tracks include: Basketball, soccer, archery, secret ops, digital photography, percussion, yard games, wacky science, music, crafts, fast food and drama.

The last day of camp is Chick-fil-A Friday Family Fun Day. On this day all family members will be invited to enjoy the last day of camp together (and to eat a Chick-fil-A lunch with their children).

More than 90 children attended the camp last summer.

Registration must be made online. Cost is $169 per child with discounts available for a second child from the same family. Some scholarships are available. Contact the church for more information about financial assistance.

St. Paul’s east campus is located on the corner of U.S. 90 and Mississippi 57. For information, call the church office at 228-875-5701.
