Eco Camps

 

Eco Camps are similar to Residential Camps, with more focus on environmental stewardship

and skills to deepen your connection with God’s Earth.

 

Braveheart Camp (Ages 9-11)
July 14-17, 2019

A Braveheart is one who is without fear, responds with action, leads with courage, and follows through to completion the task he or she has been called to. Braveheart campers will discover what it means to live close to creation by practicing introductory wilderness skills such as: building natural shelters, learning to build, and tend fires, preparing wild plants for food as well as other favorite camp activities. We will explore & discover more about the magical world God created. Campers gain self-esteem, work cooperatively, and make new friends, as they gain confidence in both living and feeling at home in God’s amazing earth.
