Traveling Day Camps

 

About Us

“Our Day Camp program is a unique and beautiful ministry.  We have the opportunity to share the love of Christ with kids that come for 1 week or all 10 weeks of the summer.  Our staff are exceptional.  We have searched for servant-hearted staff just for your child.  They teach our campers Bible stories, play crazy games, sing songs and most importantly love them for exactly who they are.  God is so real at camp and I am blessed to see this unique experience change the lives of our campers and staff daily.  Bringing our incredible Day Camp program to the surrounding communities is such a wonderful opportunity.  God is so good and I can’t wait for the summer to start so that we can spread the Good News of Jesus Christ together.

-Andrea Cronin (Staff Alumni)
