Joni & Friends Chicago Partners with Cedar Lake Ministries

Young Woman with Little Girl
Joni & Friends Chicago and Cedar Lake Ministries have begun a new partnership to offer a special needs week-long retreat to families with disabilities! We’re so excited to host the first Chicago Urban Family Retreat that Joni & Friends is putting on! Joni & Friends’ worldwide family retreats give families affected by disability the opportunity to retreat, relax, and refresh in an encouraging, safe, accessible, and Christ-centered environment. Families will get to experience the loving and fun environment of camp, enjoying worship, teaching, and age-appropriate activities. It’s also our honor to treat them like royalty, as children of our living God, and to make sure they are able to experience an environment that allows meaningful connections to happen between families that understand the challenges and triumphs of living with disability.
 
If you’re interested in learning more or signing your family up for the retreat, visit Joni & Friends’ website for more information.

New Gorilla Ball

Activities Updated at CLM

New Gorilla Ball
Volunteers are a most important resource for any ministry, and CLM is no exception.  We are grateful to our volunteers Ron and Paul this summer!
 
Ron worked hard to make our new Human Foosball happen, but he also built two new Gorilla Ball pits! Gorilla Ball (also called GaGa Ball) is one of our most popular camp activities. Our old pit was getting pretty worn out, so Ron blessed us by building two new and beautifully designed pits!
9-Square-In-The-Air is another great activity. Our younger campers, however, are generally too short to really enjoy this game. Not anymore! Paul made a new 9-Square-In-The-Air with adjustable legs! Now our younger campers can join in the game as well, and they’re loving it!

New Human Foosball

Human Foosball Now at CLM!

New Human Foosball
Construction of a new activity has been completed next to the playground at Cedar Lake Ministries. Human Foosball is already very popular with campers and guest groups. Like a traditional foosball table, players are limited to traversing left and right along a line as they attempt to kick a soccer ball into their opponent’s goal. The sport has been gaining popularity among other camps, but CLM has brought the game to a new level by making the court much larger. In fact, it is the largest Human Foosball course we know of, possibly a world record! Thank you to all of the volunteers and staff who made this new activity possible! If you are interested in helping with a project like this, please contact Ministries Director Mike Miller in the office.
