~First Time Camper Guide~

Why camp?

Do you ever wonder what is so powerful about camp? Why do people choose to send their kids to camp? Camp equips and teaches. There are many reasons to why so many people come to experience summer camp.

Here are a few of the many things you will experience at camp:
-It starts with "coming", instead of "staying" in your usual surroundings. 
-You come into something new and are invited into an experience that is bigger than oneself.
-It allows for questions to be asked and communities to be created.
-You will experience the presence of God as He proclaims truth over each individual's life so they know they matter, are loved, and mean something in this world.

Check out the many camp options we have to offer this summer!
