Many of you will remember that in 2013 we made quite a few changes to our camp schedule. For a look back at why we made these changes, check out this video. We heard a lot of great feedback about the changes that we made, so for 2014, we are only making a minor adaptation to the week-long schedule. You can read more about those details here.
As we began preparing for the summer of 2014, our team took a closer look at the weekend camp schedule and asked the question, “How can we make it better?” Weekend camps are short, and since they are so short, we really want to provide as much value as we can in the time that we have. We feel that one of the most valuable things we can provide at camp is an opportunity for kids to encounter God in worship. So for 2014, we are adding an extra time of worship to the weekend camp schedule. Here’s how it will work:
On opening day, check-in will take place from 3-5pm like it always has. Then, after dinner, instead of coming to opening celebration, campers will go to Bible study. Following Bible study, staff will bring kids to worship. Of course, this time will still begin with an upbeat “welcome to camp” atmosphere, and then we’ll transition into worship. After worship, churches will be dismissed to church group time, and then the schedule will follow the same pattern as last summer. For a full look at the weekend camp schedule, click here.
Don’t worry. If you choose to come to weekend camp, you’ll still get all of the things that kids and churches have come to know and love:
We are excited about this small change to our weekend camp schedule, and we really hope that it will give kids that much more of an opportunity to engage with the living God and to be transformed by His word.
