($110) Our Day Camp is for children who will complete grades 1-5 in the current 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 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.

Join us at Summer Surge Day Camp, Wandering in the Desert! We will travel through the stories found in the book of Exodus and discover how God is always faithful. Come venture on this journey with us this summer!
