This week is an opportunity for campers to experience living in community with others, with God, and in creation so that they begin to see and feel God’s love every day within themselves, their friends, families, and their local churches. Each site features unique aspects for campers. For instance, Camp Egan features creek walks, a Discovery Center and cookouts. Trained, experienced leaders facilitate faith development in small groups, in worship, and through fun activities with others.
