Attending Christian summer camp encourages spiritual growth through a Bible-centered environment, allowing children and students to focus on their relationship with God and fellow Christians. The community fostered in summer camp is unlike any setting tailored for students.
- Time to get away- At camp kids get out of their normal routines and can get away from distractions and the chaos of life. They get to take advantage of the ‘retreat’ aspect of camp. Sometimes when kids are away, they just tend to hear things in a new way. Camp allows them to just have fun with new friends and to focus on God.
- Bible Time- Most importantly kids get to saturate their minds and hearts with God’s word. Most young people come back from camp on a “spiritual high”, because they have experienced the greatness of God and His word. Spending hours every day studying His word, hearing Bible lessons, and singing praises to God will do that to you.
- Nature- Spending time in God’s creation is another inspiring part of camp. There is nothing like being away from video games, social media, or any other entertainment from a screen. Nature helps us better appreciate God and His creation.
- Unique opportunities and experiences- Kids can do things at camp that they just can’t do at home. It isn’t often that you can get away with smearing shaving cream on adults or smashing water balloons on strangers, but camp is the place where these things are normal and acceptable. Because of these unique opportunities, we are able to break down barriers in relationships with students.
- Develop healthy Christian relationships- Campers are surrounded by some of the most caring, loving Christian people for an entire week. The kids will have many opportunities to spend quality time with leaders who care about them and other kids.
- Leave their comfort zones- Sleeping in a bunk room, or just simply being away from home will help teach them new things about themselves and life. Students learn that living with intentionality and structure is important, even if we are away from our normal routines. This brings healthy growth for kids and can lead to great ministry opportunities.
- Learn spiritual truths- In the week of camp, kids will learn a lot from their Pastors, leaders and chapels. They are learning and forming associations with spiritual truths–even when they aren’t in a “teaching time.” They’ll learn by what leaders say, the attitudes they display, and by the way they model their own spiritual lives in front of them.
