Yesterday, I mentioned here three organizations that I think are worthy of support. One of those is Saint Dorothy's Rest, which is a camp and retreat center run by the Episcopal Diocese of California. The oldest camp in California, Saint Dorothy’s Rest is located in the midst of a redwood forest in Sonoma County, in the San Francisco Bay Area. Summer camps are held there for kids. There are hospital camps and retreats there as well. It's a special place where you can get away and reconnect with your faith.
Individuals can go there for a day or for a weekend and find refreshment. It's great for meeting too or for a conference with your youth group. Saint Dorothy's is really many things, but most of all it is a special place that you never grow tired of. Katie Evenbeck has served as Executive Director there for the past ten years and certainly is one of the many reasons that Saint Dorothy's is so great.
As a youngster in upstate New York, I was an annual summer camper at a wonderful place that I am reminded of when I think of Saint Dorothy's Rest. My summers as a camper and then later on as a staff member, bring some very special memories, and that's just what happens at Saint Dorothy's. You build memories of a lifetime.
I'm writing about them because it's a place that deserves to be known. If you live in Northern California, you may wish to participate in some of their programs. They could also always use your support. There are many ways of giving, and if you click HERE you can find a list. Please take a moment too and click HERE to watch a four minute video all about them. It will warm your heart. More information is also available about this special place on their website at http://stdorothysrest.org/
