Day Camps (Rising 1st-4th Graders)


Children who are rising 1st - 4th graders can spend the day at camp and join us for swimming, arts & crafts, archery, cooking, gardening, canoeing, Bible study and more! Skits and games, worship and swimming will set the stage for meaningful small group bible studies and larger group Christian Fellowship.  Come join us in tons of fun and fellowship on the shores of beautiful Lake Allatoona.


Discovery Camp - (Rising 2nd-3rd Graders)


A perfect way to introduce the joy of Christian camping to our youngest brothers and sisters in Christ. These sessions are designed to light the fire of Christian community in the hearts of our most energetic campers. For first time campers the three night session might be just right, while for braver, more experienced young ones the five night session might be more what you are looking for. You and your child choose!


Exploration Camp - (Rising 4-6th Graders)


Exploration sessions allow campers to explore the journey with Christ in their own lives. Skits and games, worship and swimming will set the stage for meaningful small group Bible studies and larger group Christian fellowship.
