On June 6, St. Paul’s donated knotted quilts to Camp Noah. What is Camp Noah? Camp Noah is a fun-filled, week long day camp for children throughout the US that facilitates the emotional recovery for children from the devastating impact of a disaster such as: tornadoes, floods and other traumatic life events.
There are trained national volunteer teams. Camp Noah celebrates each child as a special gift from God and helps them identify their unique gifts and talents. Each child, grades 1-6, receives a quilt and takes it home. This year there will be a Camp Noah in the Poconos. Camp Noah is not a faith-based camp.
