Camp allows kids to learn independence. It pushes them to make new friends and to try new things. It makes them think about their relationship with God on their developmental level.
We partner with CentriKid for our summer camp. CentriKid is owned and run by LifeWay. They hire college students who love Jesus and kids to run the camp and we bring adult chaperones who are with them at night and engage throughout the day. I love CentriKid, because it tries to stay away from what happens at camp stays at camp. It tries to partner with us your local church to disciple your kid not only that week at camp, but instead to be part of a 52-week approach that your child is discipled all year long.
CentriKid is for current 2nd-5th graders, who will be rising 3rd-6th graders, this summer. Camp is 4 Nights and 5 days of Jesus infused into activities every moment they are awake. The cost of camp is $365** The $55 deposit for camp is due Wednesday, February 1st.
**Don’t let the cost of camp deter you. We will be having a huge, church-wide, student and children’s camp fundraiser, Chocolate Covered Easter Eggs. Your child will get $2 profit towards each egg sold and has some other opportunities to lower the cost of their camp. If your child wants to be there, please talk with me. Finances should not be the reason they are not there!
