Journey is a Jr. High discipleship camp that seeks to encourage students to respond to Jesus’ invitation “Follow Me”. Students are encouraged to take first steps or the next steps on this journey of faith so that the campers will:
- Grow in their commitment as disciples of Christ, either as a first time profession of faith or continued living as a disciple.
- Understand the importance of participating in a local church as part of the discipleship journey.
- Live the joy of their spiritual journey at home and at school.

“Wilderness camp is a unique seven day, six night adventure in creating a Christian community while living outdoors. It is a challenging experience where campers develop relational skills: listening to others, expressing their own needs and ideas, caring for others, and making inclusive group decisions. Campers in this challenging environment will learn, about community building, camping skills, and how to care for creation. This year’s theme is “One World Together.” This camp is limited to those who will be in the 7th or 8th grade in the fall and registration is limited, so register early to get your spot.
Contact the dean, Charles Neff, at email@example.com for more information about this camp.

6th Grade Camp
Entering grade 6
This week is an opportunity for campers to experience living in community with others, with God, and in creation so that they begin to see and feel God’s love every day within themselves, their friends, families, and their local churches.
Each site features unique aspects for campers. For instance, Camp Egan features creek walks, a Discovery Center and cookouts.
Trained, experienced leaders facilitate faith development in small groups, in worship, and through fun activities with others. Campers will return home knowing more about who they are as individuals, as members of a community, and in relation to God through Jesus Christ.
