Preparing Your Kids For Camp

It’s kids’ camp time again. I’d like to address the importance of preparing your kids to go to and enjoy the camp experience. I spoke in Wisconsin camp a few years back. When kids entered the campground, they could read a huge banner strung up above the chapel doorway. The banner read, “Welcome to the Best Week of Your Life.” I wish that were true for all kids attending AG camps this summer. For some, the inability to cope with the culture of Pentecost presented at camp can result in a less-than-stellar memory.


Camp Conversations

The camp experience will naturally bring about lasting memories. Whether it’s being on the winning team, eating something disgusting for a competition, that one funny skit, or going days without a shower, camp will always be a place for memory-making moments. A child will rarely remember the struggles. Usually it’s the impactful memories that are turned into moments.


Why Every Kid Needs Camp

I’ve been involved to one degree or another in summer camps for twenty years. I was a counselor during my college years, took kids to them (and retreats) for eleven years as a youth pastor, and have been involved in leading statewide camps for the past eight years. Now I am sending my own kids. And I can tell you from two decades of experience that there is a marked difference between kids who go to a Christian summer camp and kids who don’t.


Funding Church Camp for Every Child
