Blue Theology for Farm Labor Camp Youth

In partnership with the Catholic Diocese of Monterey, the Monterey Bay Aquarium, and LiMPETS, the Blue Theology Mission Station will host 8 groups of rural farm labor camp youth for Blue Theology learning/serving experiences. Two years ago, they hosted 5 farm labor camp groups in this very worthwhile program.

After training their staff and volunteers, high school-aged youth will be transported from the rural farm labor camps to the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) of Pacific Grove’s Blue Theology Mission Station for all-day immersion in Blue Theology. Meals and transportation will be provided, as well as backpacks, notebooks, hats, and water bottles. The program includes a spiritual tour of the Monterey Bay Aquarium, participating in a long-term scientific data collection of an indicator species (sand crabs) at Asilomar Beach, presentations on the current health of the Ocean, and a worship service focused on creation care. They plan to program for 8 groups of 25 participants each, plus adult chaperones. This program is designed to inspire the at-risk youth to develop spiritually and to foster good relations with the church. Also, to create good creation stewards and perhaps spark an interest to further pursue learning in science and theology.
