Cleanup in full swing after storm rolls through LDS Church camp in Ontario

On June 8 and in the early morning hours of June 9, a series of severe thunderstorms rolled through southern Ontario. One of the worst-hit areas was the Thomas S. Monson Camp and the surrounding area. This sparkling new campground is located near Peterborough, Ontario.

On the night of June 10, I received an email from my elders quorum president asking for help the following day in cleaning up the campground. It's possible it was a tornado that roared through the campground. Fortunately, no one was injured or killed. We were asked to bring our lunches and something to drink.

I was amazed by how quickly the church had organized the cleanup.
