2016 Summer Camp
It’s almost here… SUMMER CAMP 2016 !!!
What does it mean to be a part of a Christian community? How can the church be a resource that gives campers confidence and courage? Campers will explore how they themselves are a part of the Church and what that means about how we relate to one another and the world. Watch how the strength of Christian community casts out fear and replaces it with hope! The daily guides offer fun, age-appropriate plans for all ages to explore scripture, experience Christian community, and express joy through worship and song.
Join us this summer at
Monroe Camp and Retreat Center for “Fearless Faith.”
