Explore Camp Session I, June 25 to July 1
Come explore with us! Given the success of previous years, we now offer two sessions of Explore Camp. Session one caters to elementary students, grades three to five; session two is for middle school kids, including those who just completed eighth grade.
Explore Camp is all about learning what it means to be a member of the Body of Christ. We will look for the answer while having fun making new friends, exploring nature, challenging ourselves on the ropes course, singing around the campfire, and so much more! Discover more about yourself, more about God, and more about the wonderful relationship that brings us all together.
For rising 3rd-5th graders
Explore Camp Session II, July 2-8
Session II continues the theme of being one in the Body of Christ. We will look more deeply at ourselves and our relationship with God and each other. Days at Explore Camp are filled with outdoor activities, games, art, chaplain time, and worship. We will challenge ourselves on the ropes course, get wet on the water slide, make s’mores over the campfire–all while discovering more about ourselves, more abut God, and more about the wonderful relationship that brings us all together.
