Elk River United Methodist Church has a rich history of participating in a service camp called STORM-Service To Others in Relational Ministry. During the week of STORM Camp, youth from around MN storm the community to perform service jobs of any kind, but often painting, light construction/demolition, and yard work. In 2018, Elk River UMC had the pleasure of hosting the camp and will continue to host for several years. All youth that have completed grades 7 and up are encouraged to attend. Registration for 2019 will begin in March, contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
