How we will present Jesus to your youth and children this summer.
The expanded time in the camp setting and Christian community allows us to explore the whole story in word, simulation, song, and worship. Coupled with enthusiastic counselors who are trying to be spirit filled role models we have the potential for transforming experiences. For most kids this brings Jesus alive in their hearts and can be a catalyst to your own children and youth ministries.
It is still possible to register campers online or by brochure. Let us know if you need copies.
