Time to Plan for Camp!!!
We are looking forward to another great year on Casper Mountain as we participate in Summit and Children’s Camp. If you are not going to camp, please don’t stop reading. This is a tremendous ministry that really does involve a church-wide effort to be successful.
Our church will participate in the first week of Summit and we have about 50 spots reserved. This camp takes place July 15-20 and the cost is $165. Summit is open to those that are completing sixth through twelfth grades. We need deposits by May 20th to hold spots. If there is still room after that, July 1st is our final deadline to sign up for Summit.
We also have Children’s Camp July 8-12. This camp is open for students finishing third through sixth grade. The cost of this camp is $100. Children’s Camp is a very popular camp and we need to get our registration in by June 1st.
These camps play a strategic role in our youth and children’s ministry. Not only are these highlights of the summer but they are truly used as platforms for further ministry. Every year, we see students become Christians, grow in their relationship with Christ, and deal with issues in their lives. I am very thankful that we have Mountain Top Baptist Assembly and these camps as resources in our state.
As a church, there are several ways to be involved. It is essential that we pray for these camps. Pray for those that are going, both students and sponsors. Pray that God will work in the lives of those that are going. Pray for those that are preparing and leading these camps. We also have a need for sponsors to go with our students to camp. Maybe God would have you spend a week on top of wonderful Casper Mountain with a group of teenagers or preteen children. There is also a financial need. Many students can’t afford the cost of camp. Every year, we provide scholarships for several students so that they can attend one of these camps. I am so very thankful that I can tell students and their families that we will be able to help them. There has never been a student in my time at Boyd Avenue who has not attended camp because they could not afford it.
I am already excited about what God will do this summer. Thank you for participating in Camp with us. As part of the body of Christ, this is a ministry we do together.
