Our monthly day camps are full of fun, learning, service, and relationships. These camp days are open for teenage boys, ages 12-18, in single parent, no parent, or foster homes.
Camp days consist of three main elements: Teaching, Footwashings, and Skill Groups. All with a healthy dose of fun and learning!
Each camp day centers around a monthly biblical theme. We've recently taught on the themes of forgiveness, brotherly love, humility, and more. Members of our teaching team share twice a day - morning devotional and lunch time Bible story. We end the afternoon time with small group discussion sessions led by volunteers. This is an opportunity for our campers to ask hard questions and build relationships with volunteers who love them.
Our morning Footwashings are service projects that allow our campers to serve and engage with the local community. We seek to serve the elderly, single parents, foster homes, and local community support organizations like halfway homes, homeless shelters, and more.
Our Footwashing groups have built wheelchair ramps, cleaned yards, done home repairs, and picked up trash on miles of Chattooga county.
After lunch, the campers split into afternoon skills groups. The groups allow time for our volunteers to pour into and teach campers practical skills. Our campers can explore their interests, learn from caring adults, and gain applicable life skills. Campers choose from a wide variety of afternoon groups.
