June 25-June 30

Camp is a highlight of every summer. Students in both High School and Middle School are going to enjoy getting away for a week where they will experience and enjoy time with each other and learning more about their personal Creator.

"Camp with our youth group is when we can go somewhere together that can help us grow closer to the Lord and grow closer together. My past years have been filled with laughs down by the lake, tears and great conversations in our group meetings, and tons of amazing worship in chapel. We have switched camps through the years, but it doesn’t matter where we are because we can connect anywhere. I’m so thankful for the closer friendships and the better relationships that have happened because of camp with first church youth group."
