Sonshine Camp                 For 1st & 2nd Graders
July 7-8, 2018
Never been to camp before? This is a great place for early
elementary kids to start – a 24-hour, one-night experience that
provides a taste of all the fun of swimming, hiking, crafts, and
active learning sessions under the careful and watchful eye of
shepherds they know from their own church. All activities and
worship experiences are geared for this special age-level to make
camp something they want to do again and again.

Attention Adults: One shepherd for every one-to-five campers
from each church is REQUIRED! Men must be prepared to come
with boy campers and women with girl campers. Each adult must
register in advance and submit to the full safety screening of the
conference before being accepted as a Shepherd.

Contact Becky Price if you want to attend as a Shepherd.
Joy Camp                           For 3rd-5th Graders
July 6-8, 2018

The JOYful noise of music, the enJOYment of active learning, expressions of
JOY on children’s faces – these are the JOYs of JOY Camp! If your kids have
a real creative streak and a desire to try out new things, this may be the
summer camp they need to attend. In this model of camp, campers choose
creative arts and movement classes they want to attend. Although choices vary
from camp to camp, they all focus on ways the church uses the arts in worship –
vocal music, instrumental music, drama, the written word, dance/movement,
visual art, verbal expression, etc. The campers will help lead worship
throughout the weekend using the new skills they have learned.
Growin' in Grace Camp                     For 3rd-5th Graders
July 16-18, 2018

Are your kids ready for some fun in the sun? Well, help them grab some
friends, throw a swim suit in a bag, and let’s go to camp! Over three days
and two nights campers will experience the best nature has to offer in one
of our three campsites – an awesome red rock canyon, a placid lake side
point, or a serene tree-studded valley. In addition to the traditional hikes,
swimming, and crafts of camp, campers will experience interactive learning
sessions and participative worship. During this camp, in cabins and small
groups, kids are encouraged to start building relationships with adults and
children from other churches that will last through adolescence – so get
ready for some new friends as well as a good time!
6th Grade Camp                             For 6th Graders
July 16-20, 2018

This week is an opportunity for campers to experience living in community
with others, with God, and in creation so that they begin to see and feel God’s
love every day within themselves, their friends, their families, and their local
churches. Outdoors, campers can go fishing, explore the creek, swim, cook out,
hike, play games, and more. In the Discovery Center they choose from a wide
variety of projects like leather-working, wood-burning, jewelry-making, and
inventing their own creations with all kinds of materials. Trained, experienced
leaders facilitate faith development in small groups, in worship, and through
fun activities with others. Campers will return home knowing more about who
they are as individuals, as members of a community, and in relation to God
through Jesus Christ.
