Craft camp to be held April 10-13 at Comeca
There is a place that is referred to by some as “a little bit of Heaven” for one week every April.
The place is actually known as Camp Comeca, and is owned by the United Methodist Churches of Nebraska.
It is on top of a large hill, and overlooks Midway Lake. The buildings include a kitchen/dining hall, two dormitories, a two-story motel, indoor swimming pool and hot tub, manager’s family home and a few cabins.
Each year in mid-April these facilities are reserved for The Great Plains Creative Arts Association. People who are interested in arts and crafts of all kinds come from all over the state, and even from Colorado.
There are usually 20 different “labs” to choose from—acrylic or oil painting, wood carving, gourd decorating, stained glass, beading and quilting to name just a few.
Most of the instructors bring supplies for the crafters.
Sleeping areas and three meals a day are part of the package, as well as a silent auction, live auction and give away.
This year the camp runs from April 10-13. Crafters can stay for one day or all four days.
Anyone interested can call the president of the association Vickie Jorgensen at 402-646-2280. Her address is 2602 E. Seward Rd. Seward, NE 68434. Email:
