Join us for four fun filled days of learning about God, forming new friendships, and building some independence.  Black Bear Camp is the perfect choice for your child who is eager to be a part of a summer camp and all that entails, including sleeping in cabins with their fellow campers, all while you are on site - campers and adults will participate in some activities together and some independently.  This year, we will learn how important it is to persevere through whatever circumstance we find ourselves in, and how God is our coach in life. So, register for an adventure with your child (grandchild), pack your bags, and find out how fun camping can be!

Polar Bear Camp

Grades: 4th - 6th

Dates: August 7-13, 2016

Check-in Sunday, August 7th * 3:00pm-5:00pm

Check-out Saturday, August 13th * 10:00 am

Polar Bear Camp helps some of our younger campers find the courage to persevere and reach new heights in a safe and supportive environment.  We surround campers with compassionate counselors who help them test their limits and try new things.  For some campers, perseverance will mean conquering an obstacle in our challenge course; for others, perseverance will mean spending a week away from home without any tears or fear.  Our goal each day is to help campers believe that with God, in time, all things are possible!
