But more than that, summer camp is always a transformative experience of personal growth.

Winter Weekends

Just like the summer, winter camps focus on team games and challenges and team-building activities. And as always, we are only as strong outside as we are inside, so winter camps feature a variety of speakers and chapels to hone your faith, grow your walk with God and deepen your commitment to His calling.So summer or winter, we have you covered.
