Jr. High Camp recap

Welcome to the 2020 Junior High Camp – “Equipped” May 28-31, 2020!




It has become almost too routine these days to receive an email announcing the cancelation of an event. We very much wanted to reverse that trend with Jr. High Camp. However, as much as there was a desire to see camp take place this year, it would not be wise to move forward at this point with camp at the end of May as planned.

Alternate dates in June where considered, but with the uncertainty that exists related to the opening of regular group gatherings, we concluded that the right decision is to cancel camp for 2020 and begin working toward having camp back again next May in 2021. 

Look for more information on Jr. High Camp 2021 later this year. 



Our theme for this year’s JH Camp is: equipped. 2 Timothy 3:17 says, “so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.” At camp this year, we will explore and respond to God’s Word by feeling fully, thinking critically, and doing justly. Jesus is far and away our best example of this: his felt with his heart when he had compassion; he reasoned with his head when he confronted evil, apathy, and pride; he used his hands to heal people and extend mercy to them.

Our goal at JH Camp is for all of us to be much more equipped to feel, think, and do like Jesus did. We’ll do this through lots of experiential learning, meaningful messages, and intentional processing of ideas with peers and adult leaders.
