Bachman participates in Goshen College Camping Inquiry Program

GOSHEN, Ind. — Hannah Bachman, a 2014 mathematics graduate from Tiskilwa, is serving at Menno Haven Camp, also in Tiskilwa, as part of Goshen College’s summer-long Camping Inquiry Program (CIP).

Summer camps at Menno Haven provide weeklong adventures for children, offering exploratory activities that allow campers to go tromping through the woods, swimming and boating in a nearby lake and worshiping together as a community. Bachman is the daughter of Dean Bachman and Beth Gerig. She attends Willow Springs Mennonite Church.

Goshen College’s Camping Inquiry Program gives students the unique opportunity to spend three months in service with nature. The goal of CIP is to facilitate student engagement with a camping or retreat center and on-site mentor in a meaningful assignment, giving them the opportunity to test whether they might pursue involvement in outdoor ministry after graduation.
