I love camp. Surprised? Probably Not. After all, it’s what I do most every day of the year. However, it’s not just camp that I love, it’s CentriKid Camps. Why?
It’s gospel-centered. Here at CentriKid Camps, we keep our Bible study curriculum focused on the gospel and its impact on our lives. I love this about our camps! This summer we will learn about living a transformed life, knowing that transformation comes only through the gospel, God’s work in our lives. What better way to assist churches than helping kids understand the message of scripture? What better thing to teach kids at camp than the good news of Jesus Christ?
It’s all about relationships. We believe true life-change happens best in the context of relationships, so we provide a group of well-trained, relational staffers who LOVE kids and have a deep desire to help them grow in their relationship with Christ. Our staff teams are totally focused on kids at camp. This also helps you focus on relationships. As a leader, you aren’t throwing together lesson plans at the last minute, hiding away preparing for the evening message, or answering questions from confused or unprepared volunteer Bible study teachers. Instead, you, too, can hang out with your kids, play football with them, have quality conversations, and invest in relationships.
It’s organized. We are professionals. We plan year-round. I’ve seen a lot of camps, and one of the things I love about CentriKid Camps is the attention to detail and the strong emphasis on organization. We hear from group leaders all the time who love CentriKid because it’s organized. Even our most loyal fans know that we certainly aren’t perfect. We mess up. We don’t always get it right, but we work hard to plan, evaluate, and stay organized… so that people like you can enjoy the camp experience to the fullest.
It meets a true need. Camp is one of those things that you, as an individual, can spend month and months preparing to do on your own. It dominates your spring and summer, leaving you little time to work on other ministry needs. Or, it gets handed off to your intern who’s never done this camp thing before. Instead of opting for one of these options, let us meet a need for you with CentriKid Camp… all you have to do is get the kids there, and we’ll do the rest! Your kids still have TONS of time to connect with you, your leaders, and kids from your church while they are at camp. In fact, I would argue that you have MORE time to really hang out together than if you’re busy teaching and leading and cleaning up the rec field!
Our team is completely passionate about what we do, and totally invested in our program. We always want to make it better. We always want to improve. We want to continue to meet the needs of churches… so keep letting us know how we can better serve you!
