Yes camp is right around the corner?

Yes camp is right around the corner?

We are so excited for camp this summer.   Maybe you've never been to camp before.  It is such an incredible time to connect with new and old friends.   You get to use your outside voice.  Yes!   You can experience the most important relationship in your life - your relationship with God.  You can connect with the outside and use that outside voice.  Yes!  If you haven't registered yet for camp at Spencer Lake Kids Camp now is the time.   We have two camps for boys and girls 3rd - 6th grade.  They are held August 8-12 and August 15-19 2016.   Check with your church and find out which week they are attending and register.  If your church doesn't regularly attend Spencer Lake Kids Camp you can still signup. Talk to your pastors maybe they would be willing to send a group.  If not that's ok, you are still welcome to attend the camp.  We'll find a place for you.  After all we'd love to hear your outside voice.  You can find out more about Spencer Lake Kids Camp at. http://www.wnmdkids.org/index.php/kidmin/kids-camp

(3) Call or email us with any questions.
