From theater and photography to music and leadership workshops, campers reveled in all there was to do this summer at Next Gen Summer Camps.
Next Gen held four summer camp sessions this summer, each offering its own unique opportunities for campers to grow in their faith while having fun!
Camp Inspire, our new creative arts camp, provided campers with an opportunity to write and perform music, explore the different aspects of theater production, and discover new photography skills.
High School Camp built camper confidence with their own voice through leadership workshops amid traditional camp activities like archery, hiking, and lip synch battles.
Middle School camp was a new experience for many campers in staying at an overnight summer camp for the first time, making new friends and growing closer to God through evening worship and small group Bible studies.
Niños y Jovenes, our Hispanic heritage camp, welcomed campers as young as 6 and as old as 18 as they gathered together for a week of community, faith, and traditions such as mud wars and Holy Communion in front of a camp fire.
Several campers expressed a desire to become more involved in summer camp ministry through counselors-in-training or joining leadership planning teams.
We never stop being amazed at the creativity, confidence, leadership, energy, and passion of our campers once they’re given a little time and space to express themselves and explore faith for themselves.
We look forward to seeing even more campers grow and thrive at next year’s summer camps and our upcoming Next Gen retreats.
