Delano Bay Christian Camp A Legacy of Christian Values Reaching to Eternity

A Few DBCC Memories:  Does anyone remember when DBCC experienced a high tide so high that water threatened to enter the cabins? Some of you slept with your suitcases on your bed with you! Some of you packed up and left! Great fun!

Lakeview Ladies Retreat - Feb. 2013

 Don & I experienced one of these king high tides in December. We thought SeaBreeze was going to float away. Instead Fir received four inches of water! Great fun!

DBCC Needs You!  Help! The DBCC Camp Bibles have been ordered and the Bible fund has zero dollars!  A few more immediate needs:    

New Brooms New Mops New plastic or rubber doormats Poster frames ($10 at Wal-Mart) for camp pictures.

 Attention all campers: Would you like a blue mattress cover on your mattress? We need 60 additional mattress covers to cover every single mattress. Can you sacrifice a few hamburgers or cokes to put a few dollars in the mattress cover fund?

A Few Thank Yous:  Roger Miller: Ordering and replacing windows in the Girls’ & Boys’ Quads!  Ben Davis: Helping DBCC with our Computer and Wifi issues!  Tony Tittsworth: Teaching Robin how to keep the website updated!  Central Kitsap & Keith Purser for all their hard work on March 17th! Fire wood was cut, batteries in smoke alarms were changed, surveillance equipment was installed at Quads and the toilets were cleaned. Thanks Central Kitsap!

About 50 ladies from the Lakeview Church of Christ enjoyed an overnight retreat at DBCC Feb. 22nd &23rd. Friday started out very ominous as it was raining so hard that a tree (& power lines) fell on Delano Road blocking entrance to the camp for several hours. But the road was cleared by the Fire Department and the skies followed suit. Saturday

turned out to be a gorgeous day and the ladies were blessed by prayers, singing, scripture reading, skits, fellowship, and three wonderful lessons by Lakeview’s own Cindi Oden (“Eve”), Wendy Lauterbach (“Abigail”) & Jackie Jackson (“Naomi”). The ladies also enjoyed meals served by husbands (& a few friends) Roger Miller,

Darrell Davis, Don Hindsley, Dustin Finley and Kenneth Cupp. The DBCC Board would love to encourage more churches to use the camp for Men’s, Ladies’ and Family retreats. It is such an amazing and beautiful place. And it belongs to all of the churches in the Puget Sound. Come see us! Don & Robin
