Parent Meetings: Instead of hosting parent meetings this Spring, we decided to have the parent meeting following the Training Camp Saturday meal. It is very important that parents read and respond promptly to this letter, as it will include important information like the Training Camp meal sign up and dates for potential outreaches. If a member is 18 or older, they may participate in the session independently from their parents by following our Older Member Policy on the website.

Training Camp: Thursday, February 29 (8:30 am) – Saturday, March 2 (7:30 pm), at Woodcrest Retreat (225 Woodcrest Drive, Ephrata). This Training Camp we are adding a family potluck for Saturday supper at 5:30 pm. All families of current members are invited to come for supper and bring a dish to share. After supper, we will have a short wrap up time, after which you and your youth are free to go.

Session Duration: Training Camp through Monday, May 20. We plan to have one team again this session, and will meet at the DRAMA Office (131 Terrace Ave, Ephrata).
