You are mine
"Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by name, you are mine." Isaiah 43:1
We need not ever feel that we are abandoned or don't belong. The Creator of all things calls us by name. He did not leave us lost and forgotten, but purchased us by the blood of His Son, Jesus Christ. Campers at summer camp 2023 will look into God's Word to learn more about God's promises to us.
WILDERNESS July 16-20.
For rising 6th-9th graders
Campers will learn all kinds of outdoor skills at this session for upper elementary and junior high. At this five-day, four-night session campers will explore rock shelters and find prehistoric cave art, climb rocks, learn fire building and shelter building, learn map and compass skills, build log and rope structures, cook over a fire, and stay one night in tents. They will also canoe, ride horses, swim and play large-group games, as well as compete in axe throwing. Every day includes Bible study and a campfire.
Pathfinders July 24-27
For rising 2nd-4th graders
Campers at this four-day, three-night session enjoy nature walks, swimming, games, singing, crafts, archery, campfires and a trip to the petting zoo, along with simple Bible lessons. The staff works hard to ensure the children feel safe — and have loads of fun!
Explorers June 25-30
For rising 4th-6th graders
In this six-day, five-night session Explorers venture into Petit Jean State Park — canoeing on Lake Bailey and hiking Cedar Falls Trail. They enjoy swimming, games, archery, crafts, petting zoo and campfires. Bible studies are part of each day’s activities.
Trailblazers June 11-16
For rising 5th-8th graders
Campers will have the opportunity to go on a trail ride at the riding stables, in addition to all the regular camp activities: hiking, swimming, canoeing, archery & axe throwing, large group games, outdoor ed. They will also enjoy nightly campfires with music and a message, as well as daily Bible studies that address their emerging questions about faith and life.
voyagers July 9-14
For rising 7th-9th & 10th-12th graders
For older campers, this session will include overnight camping, a night swim, later campfires, and watching the sunrise over the Arkansas River Valley from Stout's Point. It also includes the "Godly Man" and "Godly Woman" sessions, where adult leaders engage their campers in frank talk about real issues facing teen-agers in our culture. Hiking, night games, canoeing and horseback riding all also part of the session.
Adventure June 18-23
For rising 9th-12th graders and new graduates
High school students will leave the mountain for more intense adventures -- a river float trip, tent camping and rock climbing. They will also search God's Word for answers to life's tough questions.
Family Camp July 21-23; July 28-30
Two sessions on weekends in late July make it more convenient for working parents to attend with their children.
The two sessions are open to all families but designed especially for families with children too young to attend regular sessions of camp. The session provides an opportunity for children to enjoy camp with parents and grandparents participating to provide reassurance and help prevent homesickness. The session offers a sampling of regular camp activities: singing, swimming, hiking, canoeing, large group games, crafts, Bible study and campfires — with s'mores, of course! The activities are geared toward younger children, but entire families, including older siblings, are welcome.
For church workers July 5-7
For 2023 we have added a mid-week (Wednesday through Friday) session in early July especially for families of pastors and church workers who cannot attend on weekends. Activities for this session are designed for all ages.
Families at any of the three Family Camp sessions can stay in the new retreat lodge or in cabins. Families can also save money by staying overnight in RVs or tents (Camp Trinity can provide the tents) in our campground or offsite .
We always thank God for all of you, mentioning you in our prayers. 1 Thessalonians 1:2
