There’s a place for you at Camp Rocks!
A vital part of camp preparation takes place at Pre-Camp Training. Counselors receive complete Bible study curriculum to prepare daily Bible Exploration lessons. Activity leaders are equipped with lesson plans and resources. Individuals who serve at camp fine-tune their leadership, relational and outdoor skills– and find themselves ministered to as they minister. The highlight for many is staff Bible Study each morning as Scripture, prayer and fellowship unify the group to accomplish daily tasks.
Our summer camp provides a Christ centered outdoor program which helps children learn to love God and his creation and to grow in every way. Camp helps campers come to know Christ and then develop habits of the Christian life.
What happens at Camp?
Certain features reflect the values of our ministry to children and provides means for reaching its objectives:
Morning Watch– the camper’s time alone with God to study the Bible and pray at the beginning of each day.
Bible Exploration– an activity related Bible Study, led by the counselor in a small group setting.
Evening Devotions– a brief time for cabin groups to review how God worked in the day’s events and to end the day with prayer.
