 Pastoral Care includes the encouragement
 of healthful living, of encouraging horizon
 expanding experiences (like camping),
 and worship of the God who has created
“all that is, seen and unseen.”
I have been associated with Camp Stevens
since 1983. Currently I serve as the Co-
Chairman of the Camp Stevens Board of
Directors. I am proud of the opportunities
we provide children, adults and families at
Camp Stevens: “a peaceful place apart.”
Check out the summer camping oppor-
tunities for children, teens, adults and
families. Allow the staff and the programs
of the camp to get you involved with the
beauty and wonder of God’s creation, and
with the joy of meeting new friends and
building a community over the space of a
few days, or a week.                                                    Pa s s a g e s

requiring treatment is unintentional falls,
which particularly affect the elderly, and account
for two-thirds of the injuries treated in Emergency De-
partments in adults 65 and older. In folks 75 and older, the death
rate from falls is five times the death rate in the younger group.
Children ages one to four are more likely to drown than be killed
in traffic crashes—and this is especially true here in California
where swimming pools are so common. Kids under the age of
14 also account for a third of the traumatic brain
injuries seen in a year.
