FruitFULL Faith: A Spirit-Filled Life

SUMMER CAMP 2023

Your summer will be FruitFULL when you spend it at camp! Life can be complicated and challenging but when you understand and grow into your God-given gifts (the fruits of the spirit), you are assured that you’re on the right track! As you make new friends and enjoy camp adventures, you will learn how to live a spirit-filled life! Plan now to fill your summer with fun at camp.

Every camp includes lots of outdoor fun, games, swimming, waterfront activities, crafts, devotions and age-appropriate Bible study/discussion, singing and praising God, and time to learn and grow by trying new things. Trained staff and volunteers care for you and build a welcoming community where everyone belongs.

Choose a week of camp — or a half-week “Mini Camp” for younger children — based on the grade level you are going into in the fall of 2023. Specialty camps add specific activities; extra fees may apply.
