What Are CentriKid Camps?
CentriKid is… an overnight camp for 3rd–6th graders to experience the time of their lives and learn more about the message of Jesus Christ! Camps are staffed by college and seminary students who can’t wait to hang out with your kids and love to share Christ through every aspect of camp! At CentriKid, we promise to free your hands of all the little distractions associated with kids ministry. For one week out of the year, hand us the clipboard. We’ll handle lunch, plan Bible Study, set up Recreation, organize leaders, and lead Worship sessions. You, along with your other leaders, have one main job: make every minute count. We want to help you build life-changing relationships in ministry at church and at CentriKid!
Come to CentriKid and know you will get these things
- Rooted In Scripture
Communicating the Gospel to kids is why we do camp. At CentriKid you’ll find solid biblical content woven throughout every element of camp, from interactive Bible studies and fun rec games to worship, activity tracks, and even hang time. We are a camp with a clear purpose – building a biblical foundation for kids!
- A Safe Place
We take safety seriously, and make it a priority with kids. At camp you’ll find a safe place for kids—emotionally, spiritually, and physically. You can rest assured that our trained staff value the safety of your kids!
- Ministry Through Relationships
Our staff will invest in your kids’ lives by showing the love of God through they way they live. Staffers aren’t performers; they are ministers. Meanwhile, we take care of all the details of camp, so you can focus on relationships with your kids rather than running around with a clipboard delegating tasks, or worrying about picking up the rec field.
- Kid-Friendly Programming
We are committed to providing excellent programming that keeps kids engaged. We know they learn differently at each stage of life. We train our staff to teach kids about Christ in a way they can grow and learn with kids their own age. In addition to Bible Study, we keep God’s Word at the center of every aspect of camp.
Check Out What's Coming This Summer
At CentriKid 2020, our theme is “The Discovery”. Campers will discover what it means to be imitators of Christ. Jesus is the ultimate example that we should follow as Christians and we will be taking a look at scriptures that help us know Jesus and walk as Jesus walked.
DAY 1 | Walk as Jesus Walked If we say we are His, we must follow His example, to walk as Jesus walked. We’ll answer questions like “why do we need to walk with Jesus?” and “what does it mean to remain in Him?”
Day 2 | Obey as Jesus Obeyed We can obey God because He is trustworthy and He has a perfect plan for our lives. In Bible Study we will take a look at how Jesus faced temptation in the wilderness yet obeyed God, and in Worship, kids will see how Jesus obeyed and said “yes” to the journey ahead.
Day 3 | Care as Jesus Cared Caring for people means seeing them, reaching out to them, and loving them. Our hearts toward people should match the heart that God has for them. Kids will study how Jesus cared for Bartimaeus, see how He washed the disciples’ feet, and learn how they can truly show care to those around them.
Day 4 | Forgive as Jesus Forgave We are called to forgive others even when it’s hard. Jesus set an example for us when He shared a meal with Peter and showed him that what Peter had done would not stand in the way of their friendship. Jesus fully forgave Peter. Without forgiveness and restoration from Jesus, it is impossible for us to fully forgive anyone in our lives.
Day 5 | Speak as Jesus Spoke Jesus is always with us to give us words of life to speak encouragement to others. Jesus spoke with understanding and He spoke words of spirit and life (John 6:63). Kids will be reminded that Jesus will go with us and give us the words to say, and they will be challenged to speak boldly just as Jesus spoke. Join us next summer as kids discover what it means to be imitators of Jesus. Each day of camp, your kids will be opening their Bibles to look into the Gospels and study the life of Jesus. His perfect example can show kids how their lives can line up with God’s teachings.
