($55) Our half-day Junior Camp is designed for children who will be 4 years old by June 1, 2018, through children who will complete kindergarten in the 2017-18 school year. The mission of Summer Surge Junior Camp is to encourage physical, social and spiritual growth in preschool age children. God's Word is presented in fun and imaginative ways as campers enjoy music, hands on activities, crafts, games, snacks and interactive Bible stories all revolving around a common theme.
($125) Our Day Camp is for children who will complete grades 1-5 in the 2017-18 school year. Our goal is to present the gospel of Jesus Christ to campers, encouraging each person to make a personal commitment to Him. We promote spiritual growth through daily Bible study and the memorization of key scripture passages; assist each camper in the development of Christian character through competitions and initiatives and help him or her develop skill in two areas of interest through the afternoon electives. We encourage the campers to build friendships with other campers and counselors who model the love of Christ. An “I’m Third” attitude is stressed through our camp motto: God first, others second, I’m third.
($140) Summer Surge IMPACT is designed for pre-teens who will complete grades 5-6, who are looking for a fun, faith-building week during the summer! A perfect "next step" for any camper, this offering is filled with both traditional Summer Surge elements (worship, Bible Study, competitions, and games) along with exciting new offerings such as day trips to places like Moraine State Park, hiking trips, service projects, rock wall climbing, and more. Your camper will be challenged to take their faith to the next level and discover more of who they are in Christ!
