The Episcopal Church of the Transfiguration will launch its first Wednesday Summer Bible Camp beginning June 20 at the new Edwards Interfaith Chapel and Community Center. The program is for children ages 5 to 12 and will introduce the campers to the Christian faith through music, art, dance and physical education. Teachers Barbara Jean Houck and Jeanne Nelson, both veteran Colorado licensed teachers, are co-directing the program. “We are very excited about providing a high-quality, engaging Christian summer camp program for both our parishioners and our community at an affordable price,” they said. The hours will be from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., and the cost will be $25 per day. Please contact barbarajean@
