We chose the Greek, apxn, which means “beginning” and the scripture Philippians 1:6 to symbolize how people describe their Camp experience. Camp provides the opportunity to get away from ‘regular’ life for a time of renewal, refreshing, transformation, reconnection and, for some, a time of spiritual awakening.
Why has CFA run a child and youth summer camp program for over 30 years? Simply put, a Christian camp has the potential to influence and leave a lasting impression on the lives of children and youth for Christ. Not only has this been true in my own personal relationship with Christ, but I have met many individuals who have shared how Camp has been a turning point in their relationship with the Lord. Camp is about getting disconnected from social media and the busyness and distraction of daily life and getting more connected to God. Camp provides the opportunity for an individual to accept Christ into their heart, or to renew or deepen his or her relationship with Him, through fun, relationship, challenging words from Camp speakers, and prayer and encouragement from those around us. So: Why Camp? Jesus loves Camp and Camp has IMPACT.
Discipleship: Our summer camp program began over 30 years ago with a group of people who were passionate about coming alongside children and youth. Taking time to build-up and focus on our relationship with Jesus and others: For two weeks each summer, Camp provides the opportunity for those young, old and in-be-tween, to jump into a ‘generational melting pot’ as we play, EAT, learn, grow, work and just ‘do life together.
