This year for Middle School camp we are heading to Camp Long Ridge! It is going to be an incredible week of fun, worship, Bible study, and blobbing. Our theme is The Light, based on John 12:46. We are shifting gears a bit from last year’s missions theme to focus on discipleship and being a light in our world. In addition to great worship and teaching, there will be plenty of time for swimming, zip lines, paintball, and all sorts of group games. You don’t want to miss this high-energy, life-changing week, so hurry up and register! Also, for a little extra fun, middle school students from VillageChurch and FBC Newberry will be joining us.

Cost: $249, deposit of $50 is due at registration (total balance is due June 14)

Note about Electronics: One of the goals on this trip is to allow our students to “unplug” from many of the distractions we face on a daily basis. With this in mind all electronics with the exception of cell phones are prohibited. Students are permitted to bring cell phones to contact parents or family, but we will only allow cell phones to be used for a limited time each night. All leaders will have cell phones on them at all times in case of an emergency.
