Fall 2022: "All In" -Psalm 24:1

At the “All In” recharge, campers will join an eccentric expedition team seeking a treasure worth more than gold. Campers will walk away with practical tools on how to keep God at the center of everything they do. Stewardship is often a word associated with money but it is so much more than that. Everything you have is from God, and is God’s. How can you take care of it and invest it for His Kingdom and His glory? You can use your time, talents, treasure, and so much more. Are you “all in” for God?

Spring 2023: "I Believe" -Romans 1:16

We all hold beliefs about God, but it’s often hard to articulate those beliefs and explain them to others. The early church developed several creeds to help define the basic beliefs of Christianity. During the “I Believe” Recharge, campers will take a fresh look at the Apostle’s Creed and belief statements found therein. This will reinforce what many learn in confirmation, giving campers a solid rock on which to stand in their faith, and practical ways to share the Christian faith with someone else in a loving, non-threatening way. Then we can join Paul in saying that we, too, are “not ashamed.”
