You’re Invited: HTH Friday Event!
For 55 years, His Thousand Hills has fashioned a legacy of service to the community, first as Tioga Youth Ranch for boys in the 1960s and finally becoming the camp/retreat center we know today in 1979. Its current caretaker and operations manager, Julia Moss, spoke with WHP today regarding just some of Hills Thousand Hills’ upcoming events.
Although the Christian camp and retreat center is known mostly for its summer camps, Moss quips, “We play all winter long.” She expounds, “When there’s snow on the ground we host tubing retreats–we do men’s, women’s, youth retreats…We host 4H activities. Anything that there’s a need for in our community; we’re here to serve.”
Serving the community also includes intramural basketball (Open Hoop Night) in the gym—beginning this week—on Thursday nights at 6:30pm. The camp even runs a bus to pick up area youth so they can participate. His Thousand Hills hosts Skate Night the first Tuesday of every month, and plans Fun Days on some school holidays to provide childcare for working parents.
This Friday, November 6th, the community has a chance to support the work at His Thousand Hills through the Deeds to Seeds Auction and Donation Dinner. The camp will auction off services, gift cards, and other donations (deeds) from local businesses to raise funds (seeds) for the ministry. Dinner starts at 5:30pm in the Dining Hall, with the auction beginning at 6:30pm.
“It’s a wonderful way to support a ministry right here in your backyard,” Moss says. “Bring a friend and stick around…Maybe you’ll bring home something really exciting from the auction.”
