Summer Celebration 2013 will be held Monday through Friday, June 17-21. The camp runs from 9 a.m. until noon each day.
Registration is open until we fill 500 slots. If there are still openings by the time camp starts, walk-in registration will be available.
The camp is open to kids ages 6-10. Children who turn 6 by the end of August or are still 10 years old when registration opens on April 1 are welcome to attend.
We understand that these age cutoffs can cause confusion for kids who can’t attend with their friends. Our goal is to allow as many kids as possible to attend with other campers in their grade level. However, this is the greatest flexibility we are able to provide with the age range. Thanks for your understanding.
The total cost for one child’s weeklong camp registration is $55.
This year, our overall theme is “Solving the World’s Greatest Mystery,” which is the answer to humanity’s biggest question: “What is the true meaning of life?” Using a detective/mystery motif, we’ll take the kids on a fun-filled, gospel-oriented journey as we sleuth for clues to crack the case! We are really excited about this curriculum, which we trust will help each child gain a greater understanding of how much God loves them and why he created them.
Summer Celebration is packed with great teaching, funny skits, exciting games and much more – all designed to help your child learn about the Bible and God’s great plan of salvation through Jesus Christ. Whether it's awesome worship music, Douglas Doogleberry’s hilarious antics, another zany Tree House Gang adventure or a goofy game of squirt, there's something for every kid to enjoy! But don't just take our word for it. Here are a few quick parent testimonials from previous years:
“Our two oldest ones, along with their two cousins, had a blast(off) at Summer Celebration. In fact, three of the boys – without prompting – prayed the ‘believers prayer’ in Kathy's minivan after the sessions.”
“My daughter woke up Wednesday morning and wasn’t feeling the greatest. I told her she could take a break from camp. She immediately responded, ‘Oh no, Mom, today they are talking about forgiveness and I have two people I need to forgive, so I need to go!’ What incredible encouragement to me!!! Thank you, Jesus, for this camp and every person who is working to make it happen!”
Our daily games create a context for each child to exhibit what they’re learning at camp and grow in godly character. Each day, camp volunteers nominate children for awards based on their demonstration of various biblical character traits. Stories of these moments are shared throughout the week, further inspiring the kids to grow. We want to celebrate and honor what God honors.
We hope your children will join us this year!
