SURGE is a week-long evening summer camp for kids entering 1st-6th grade in the fall of 2022. The camp offers coaching in various sports and instruction in the arts. We gather in small and large groups to discover who God is and what He's done for us through a time full of music, video, creative Bible teaching and more!
We know that the sports and art tracks are a huge part of our camp. We also love our large group session where we get to share with kids the story of Jesus and the Gospel. Want to check out the teachings from this last year? Click the links below:
