THANK YOU for making Light in the Valley a success!
We'd like to give a big THANK YOU to everyone for their interest in our Light in the Valley program. We shipped over 200 boxes and are so grateful for your love and support. We would also like to give a shout out to all who helped fold, cut, stuff, pack, and label materials for all of the boxes - it couldn't have happened without y'all.
You can see Alex Carr, Director of Light in the Valley, and Sierra Gore's packing process in this video.
Light in the Valley Live
One exciting option for families to consider is to participate in Light in the Valley Live. In addition to receiving a camp box, campers who sign up for Light in the Valley Live will work through the box in virtual sessions with counselors in both large and small groups. These live sessions offer a taste of the community and relationships that we see at Shrine Mont Camps. Light in the Valley Live will occur on August 3-8. While we have reached capacity for our physical boxes, you can reach out to get more details about Light in the Valley Live by emailing Paris Ball (email@example.com).

Shrine Mont Camps, delivered right to you!
We've been missing our time at Shrine Mont this summer! Our staff has been hard at work designing a way to bring Shrine Mont Camps out into the world. Light in the Valley is a new summer experience designed to help campers ages 8-18 create the feeling of camp at home!
Campers will receive a box filled with games, craft projects, chaplain’s times, and other favorite camp activities. These activities will be centered around our theme of bringing light into the Valley of the World. Campers will be encouraged to reflect on how to share their own light with their families, friends, and communities.
Everything you need for an at-home camp experience will be included in the box. You can do the activities independently at home, at any time.
***We are currently putting new requests for the boxes on a waitlist!
What should I know about Light in the Valley?
Light in the Valley is FREE! We want to make sure that as many campers as possible have the opportunity to experience camp this summer. All you need to do is register!
Light in the Valley is for absolutely everyone! Whether you’ve never been to Shrine Mont Camps or you’ve been a camper for years, this exciting new camp experience was made for you. There is a box designed for campers age 8-12 and a box for age 13-18.
The box will include games, craft projects, chaplain’s times, and other favorite camp activities. These activities, which can all be done at home and independently, will be centered around our theme of bringing light into the Valley of the World.
You will not be spending all day online! All the activities in the box can be done without going online at all. Campers have the option to participate in Light in the Valley Live, a week of virtual sessions in which campers have the opportunity to interact with counselors and cabin groups as they work through the activities in the box.
Though we can’t replace the time we spend on the mountain, we’re excited to provide an experience that brings the love, light, and joy we feel at camp into the Valley of the World.
