BOYS CAMP

Boys Camp is a time for boys to be boys. No girls to bug you. A chance for you to do all of the fun things boys like to do. If you are between the age of 8-16, make time this summer for boys camp, you'll be glad you did.
Check out the Boys Camp website for more information on rules, camp info, registration

GIRLS CAMP

In 1984, Girls' Camp was started by a group of Christians who wanted young people to have a place for fellowship and to grow deeper relationships with God. A haven, a place where you and your girlfriends meet for a special week away... away from the ordinary. It's a place where you giggle and act silly and NO BOYS ARE ALLOWED! It's the place where there are Bible lessons taught, worship songs sung, crafts created, skits performed, swimming skills perfected and nature discovered. It's the week girls talk about all year long and put on their calendar for JULY.

November 1-3
