Why should I go to Camp?Camp is the best place to learn about God and learn about yourself in a totally new way! Something amazing happens when you "get away" from it all and focus on your faith.  For many of us, camp still stands out as an experience that changed our faith lives forever.  Plus, it's really, really fun!  Lots of fun games, great food, a cool camp counselor who cares about you and gets to know you.  And what may be the best part:  God's children of all ages singing songs around the campfire.

What about the cost?  Going to camp is an investment in your child's faith.  Sometimes that can be hard to do, especially when you have more than one child.  Please don't let that stop you.  We have scholarship money here at church to help you out.
