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 engaging music, hands-on activities, crafts you'll keep for years, active games, themed snacks and interactive Bible stories all revolving around a common theme.

($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.

Kids will be Lost at Sea this summer! Join us as we discover God's compassion for us and for others by looking through the book of Jonah.

2023 Electives: archery, baking/cooking, climbing wall, crafts, indoor/outdoor games, science, spa days, sports, woodworking
