Purposeful Community

Posted on Oct 23, 2013

One of the core values at Camp DeWolfe is ‘Purposeful Community’. What an amazing thing for temporary communities like Camps or Retreat Centers to encourage groups to be intentional, to engage with each other in positive ways, to develop trust and increase communication, all so that upon return to their permanent communities, people feel more empowered to continue to live out their unique calling and identity in their wider community!

Through the Adventure Challenge Program at Camp DeWolfe, groups of up to 25 individuals come together to tackle a variety of team challenges, initiatives both on the field, and on the low ropes and high ropes courses. This process can be a memorable and fun experience for any groups from ages 10 plus as each group comes together to work through it’s unique group dynamic!

Recently, several youth groups and school groups have had their own Adventure Challenge experience at Camp DeWolfe. Here are some pictures of last weekend’s group from BOCES – a team of social workers – who came together to build trust and engage in their team! A fun experience! Our hope and prayer is for each group to meet each other where they are at, in authentic ways and to grow together in community!
