SUMMER CAMP

Why camp is great for Kids!
If you’ve been to Bible camp you’re not surprised to hear about the benefits of summer camp. But if you didn’t go to Bible camp as a child, you may not realize just how good the experience is for children. You may not know why so many parents are committed to sending their kids to camp each summer. We believe that every child should have a Bible Camp Experience and this is why:
 
Camp is action. At camp kids are unplugged from gadgets, instead they seek out the environment and their peers to create fun in a natural setting.
 
Camp promotes community. Each cabin group is a small group within the larger faith community. Campers learn about themselves by living with peers and guided by trained staff.
 
Camp creates future leaders. The camp experience offers kids a close-up look at compassionate leaders through the camp staff. Not only that, kids get plenty of opportunities to be leaders themselves.
 
Camp helps conquer fears. Camp teaches kids how to be active participants, ask questions, ask for help, and try new things.
 
Bible Camp is an immersion into a lifestyle of discipleship. Camp counselors model what it looks like when scripture prayer and worship are wrapped in a whole lot of fun.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
CAMP UPDATE:

Unfortunately, Green Lake/Shores of St. Andrew camps have been cancelled for the summer.  Camp families, you should have gotten an email about this. Please let me know if you did not receive an email. Contact Shannon here

However, there is the Day Camp at Home option for EVERYONE!  You do NOT have to have been registered to go to camp to use these resources!  There are so many fun activities like arts and crafts, nature projects, snack time ideas, story time, devotionals and worships! Join us from home for “We are the Church: Together and Apart” focused on Matthew 18:20 – “For where two or three are gathered in my name, I am there among them.” Check it out at www.gllm.org/day-camp-at-home
