Kids are constantly hearing messages from everyone around them about who they should be or need to be, and sadly, in many cases, these messages (and the messengers) are anything but positive. Wouldn’t it be awesome if your kids could get away to a Christian Summer Camp to find out how God feels about them? What He thinks about them?
And getting your kids away for a week or two from all the pressure most kids are under will do wonders. You might have a hard time recognizing them when they get home! And, of course, having the opportunity to hear the great news of God’s amazing love for us at a really fun Christian summer camp is good for everybody.
Spending time at a Christian summer camp can be an absolute blast. Hiking, singing, canoeing, sailing, and goofing off with fellow campers are all part of the great activities your kids will remember for a lifetime. Many kids end up treasuring the friendships they make with other kids for a lifetime! And most camp counseling staff are college age, and kids really look up to them and can be influenced in some very special ways.
What would it feel like if your kids said their week at a Christian summer camp was one of the best weeks of their lives? What if they came home and told you that the week actually changed their life? For a lot of Christian parents, it probably wouldn’t get much better than that.
So, as you are considering your plans for the summer, find a Christian summer camp that you feel will fit your children well. Most can be found close to home and most are quite affordable. You will be glad you did.
