KIDS CAMP 2017

June 26th - 30th

WHY WE DO KIDS CAMPS

Kids Camp gives us the amazing opportunity to present the awesome message of God to kids in extremely creative ways. At this year's camp, Maker Fun Factory - “Created by God, built for a purpose,” kids discover that God made them — and for a purpose!
Kids participate in memorable Bible-learning activities, sing catchy songs, play teamwork-building games, devour yummy treats, experience one-of-a-kind Bible adventures, collect Bible Memory Buddies to remind them of God’s love, and create fantastic crafts.

CAMPER FAQ

    • Can I request that my child be put in a group with their friends?
