 Letter from Kids Camp Directors to Campers:

We are so excited to have you at Kids Camp 2017!  Our theme this year is “All In – Living a Life of Worship”.  We are going to find out we can worship God through art, music, laughter, games, and pretty much everything we do.  We have tons of fun activities planned.  We have a cool service project for you to do this year and will discover that we can worship God through work and service to others.  Here are a few things extra that we would like for you to bring to help you enjoy the activities on the schedule:

  • At least one pair of long pants
  • At least one long sleeve shirt
  • A pair of work gloves
  • Bug spray
  • Clothes your mom doesn’t mind you getting dirty in

We want you to know we are already praying for you and we can’t wait to see you at camp!  See you on Saturday, June 3rd.

Warmly,

Pam and Sarah

 

Letter from Sr High and Jr High Directors to Campers:

On behalf of the directors and program staff, I am thrilled that you have decided to come to Camp “ALL IN:  Living a Life of Worship.”  We have been working diligently to make this year’s camp feel fresh, fun and full of worship!  Worship is a big passion of mine, and nothing excites me more than leading others to a place of experiencing the presence of God and placing their hearts and minds toward Him.  Our desire is that you will feel this in every piece of the camp’s schedule and that you will come away from camp asking yourself, “How can I go ‘ALL IN’ in worshipping God in every aspect of my life?”  Know that we have been praying for YOU for months, and that God is going to meet you in a special way at camp.  Are you ready?  Are you “ALL IN?!”

Gabe Hancock, Primary Director

P.S.  Below are some extra helpful tidbits as you prepare for camp.  #ALLin

Money:  Campers are welcome to bring extra money for food/pop at Canteen every afternoon.  There will also be optional food ($5-$10) to purchase on the final night of camp.

Worship Instruments:  With our them being about worship, anyone wishing to bring a guitar or other musical instrument is welcome (but not required).  There will be segments throughout the camp week where campers will have freedom to use them (including an “Open Mic” Night).

*Bring instruments at your own risk – CQH or EFC-MAYM is not responsible for lost or broken instruments.

**Instruments will be confiscated if they become an issue.

Clothing:  There will be a couple water-type games and night games, so include clothes that can get wet and clothes that may be stealthy.

Contact jesse@efcmaym.org if you would like to ‘adopt’ a counselor from another location (example: college students) by paying their registration costs.

If you are collecting payments for your group, please mail deposits to the EFC-MAYM office (one week grace period for church checks) and bring final payment for your group to the camp registration table. If you are the primary person responsible for registering your church group and do not have a special ‘primary youth leader’ log-in password, please contact jesse@efcmaym.org.
