Director Dan Kingery in Chipota, Zambia with the Marion Medical Mission in the Fall of 2017.
Marion Medical Mission
The Marion Medical Mission (MMM) is a ministry woven into the life of the Presbytery of Southeastern Illinois just as Camp Carew is. MMM serves communities in the African nations of Malawi, Zambia, and Tanzania by building wells and providing clean, drinkable water. Camp Director Dan Kingery is a strong advocate of MMM and has been to Africa with MMM several times to serve. The first well he installed was in the Karonga district of Malawi.
The campers of Camp Carew along with help from the Cobden Presbyterian Church were able to provide 233 Bibles for the Karonga, Livingstonia, and Chitipa area youth. Bibles in both the local language and English were handed out by our friend Lewis Silungwe.
Lewis Silungwe, Field Officer in the Karonga District of Malawi, helped Director Dan hand out dresses provided by the Murphysboro Presbyterian Church. The dresses were given out in remote villages in the mountains of northern Malawi.
Food for Orphans
The campers of Camp Carew helped provide over 10,000 meals through the Food for Orphans organization.
Camp Carew welcomes campers from all religious traditions.
