Family Week

Family Week has been a traditional part of Jumonville’s summer camping program for 75 years. Held between the end of July and the beginning of August every year, this 8 day 7 night event is a favorite for hundreds of faithful “Family Weekers” that make the journey every year. While some families have been coming for multiple generations, new families attend every year.

The cost for the full week of Family Week for 2017 is as follows:

Ages Registration* Room & Board Total Cost
Ages 13 years and over $40 $382 $422
Ages 3 through 12 $25 $191 $216
Ages under 3 years $10 $25 $35

The registration fee is based on four days or more. Under 4 days is half rate. Room & Board is prorated for shorter stays. Click here for information on FINANCIAL AID.

The date for Family Week 2017 is Saturday, July 22nd – Saturday July 29th. Come join us! You’ll be glad you did.

This year’s speaker is Matthew Price

Matthew was born and raised in West Virginia, but transferred into the Western PA Conference of the UMC last year in 2016. That same year he was appointed as the Senior Pastor of the South Hills Partnership of churches in Pittsburgh. Matthew attended seminary at Duke Divinity School in North Carolina, earning Master of Divinity and Master of Theology degrees, and was ordained in the United Methodist Church in 2015. He was a Preacher’s Kid (PK) and is a lifelong United Methodist. He love preaching and teaching God’s Word, reading all different kinds of books, and spending time with his wife, Jessica, and one-year-old daughter, Naomi. They are very excited to spend time at Jumonville this summer! .

 

This year’s carnival theme is “Back to the Future.”

Activities Include

Meet your Dean, Dan Kelley

Jumonville has always been special to Dan as he grew up here in the summers of the 50’s and 60’s. Dan graduated from West Virginia Wesleyan College and recently retired from Penn State Hershey Medical Center. After a many year hiatus, he reconnected with Family Weekers he grew up with or worked with on the kitchen staff. He sees Family Week as a time for families and individuals to disconnect from the world and have an opportunity to share and grow physically, mentally, socially and spiritually in intimate and safe surroundings, while having great time.
