Kids/Teens Summer Camp
(August 29 - September 1)
This year’s church summer camp at Lake Retreat was one of the highlights of the year for kids and teens. There were 200 kids and 45 volunteers that attended camp this year. The leaders, kids, and teens enjoyed the chance to get away for three days, spend their time growing spiritually, building relationships with one another, and participating in fun events, activities, and challenges.
In the mornings, everyone rose early for exercise and breakfast. After that they spent some time participating in a Bible study with their cabin leaders and teammates. During the day everyone participated in games and challenges prepared for them by their leaders, as well as spending their leisure time rock-climbing, zip lining, swimming, canoeing and paddle boating.
Evenings were spent in worship and listening to the word of God prepared by our pastors and leaders. Church services ended with powerful prayers, helping kids and teens grow closer in their relationship with Christ, many received the gift of tongues, drawing them to become more passionate about loving God and knowing Him.
The late evenings ended with wonderful fellowship, tea, games, skit performances, girl and boy “talks” (that were separate and lead by a leader), bonfires, and much more.
The time spent at Kids/Teens Summer Camp was refreshing, fun, and spiritually renewing for both leaders and kids. It is during this time that many new relationships were formed, great memories were created, and lives were transformed forever.
