Camp Conquest

STRONGER
2 Timothy 1:7

The theme for this year is STRONGER and the theme verse is 2 Timothy 1:7. The program will center on stories from the book of Daniel. The campers will learn of our strong God and the strength they can have from God and friendships with other believers.

Camp begins June 17, 2018 and runs in one week increments ending on July 13, 2018. Campers are divided into three ages groups: Pioneer (ages 7 to 9), Adventure (ages 10 to 12), and Quest (ages 13 to 15). If your teen wants to devote 3 weeks to being at camp participating in a leadership program, they can sign up for the STACC program (ages 15 to 17). (Psst, it’s not too late to sign up for STACC. They need one more male applicant.)

There is an Early Discount if you apply by May 1, 2018. There is also a Family Discount if you are sending more than one child to camp. If you feel you can’t afford sending your child(ren) to Camp Conquest, there is financial assistance available from the camp and from the church.
