BENEFITS OF SUMMER CAMP
Unplug. Kids are surrounded by technology day in and day out. It is a big part of the added stress students face on a regular basis. Camp encourages (and sometimes requires) unplugging from all of that technology. Camp life naturally helps students learn to live and interact with people rather than through technology.
Get moving. Speaking of technology, students tend to be pretty sedentary these days. Camp gets students up and moving. Experiencing the fun activities of camp and being outside is a great experience for kids. Even lethargic youth are naturally drawn into camp activities.
Team work. At camp, students get the ability to expand their social circle and because they are surrounded by and essentially living with a tight knit group of peers and counselors. Students develop their ability to communicate, cooperate and respect others.
Friendships. Over the years we’ve seen countless friendships blossom. Camp brings a sense of healing & deepening to relationships that end up being life-long friendships. Why? Because at camp there’s less social pressures and anxieties, plus students can feel more confident just being themselves.
Learn to be independent. While we as parents are used to taking care of our children, we know the value of them learning to be responsible. In our camp's structured and supportive environment, students learn this valuable life lesson.
Life navigation skills. Life is hard for young people. Every 12-18 year old is looking for ways to cope with life better. Jesus has those ways. And getting away from the business of life allows students to absorb truth better without the distractions of their day to day. As a result they learn how to navigate life God’s way.
Trajectories change. The #1 benefit of camp is life change. When youth get away from life's distractions they become more open to Jesus in their life. While there are no guarantees, God’s Holy Spirit is allowed to do more in a young person's life when the interruptions are removed. We've seen it countless times over the years, a student's life changes because God gets a hold of them at camp and Jesus becomes their focal point.
We have incredible adults working with our junior high and senior high students! Everyone of them has been background checked and gone through basic training in how to work with students. If you have questions, email us!
We'll meet at Creek View Elementary School on Sunday, July 24th @2 PM | 3742 Lytle Creek Loop | Ontario, CA 91871
