2023 Jr. High Camp 

Welcome to the 2023 Junior High Camp – “Peace Quest” May 25-28, 2023!





JH Camp 2023 is coming--and we are SO excited for your students to participate in this life-changing camp! Junior high is a pivotal season for most people and many Christians point to experiences in junior high where they saw Jesus working the most positive change in their lives.

Our theme for this year’s JH Camp is "Peace Quest."

In John 16:33 Jesus says, “I have told you these
things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.”


At camp this year, we’re on a quest to find ultimate peace - a peace that offers wholeness to our hearts and lives, and a peace that only comes from Jesus, who has overcome the world.



NEW to camp this year: we will provide charter bus transportation to and from JH Camp! This adds a bit to the cost, but will reduce liability and logistics significantly. One bus will leave from Gethsemane Church and one from Shepherd of the Desert. Contact Dave to see which bus your church will take (based on numbers).”

Camp will begin at 6pm Thursday and finish around noon on Sunday. JH Camp is open to students completing 5th-8th grades (entering grades 6-9 in the fall). JH Camp is a collaboration of over eight LCMS churches in the PHX Valley, however, all PSD (AZ, CA, NV) churches are welcome, invited, and encouraged to attend!
