camp 2022

Camp 2021 was one for the books! We sent over 200 students and leaders to camp, and while a handful had to come home early, we have heard story after story of lives changed. From memories made on the bus ride up, conversations during cabin time, worship, devotion time, to rec time in the mud (remember the storm that blew through?) … Camp 2021 was incredible and we can’t wait to do it all again in 2022!

We don’t want finances to be the reason students can’t go to camp. Hume Lake has an amazing Campership program, and our policy has generally been to match any camperships awarded by Hume Lake. You will be given the option to apply for a Campership during the registration process. If assistance is needed beyond that, please contact us prior to registration at camp@gracebibleag.com (all requests will be kept confidential).

 

*If your camper is sent home during camp for Covid-19 related reasons, we will prorate the cost of camp by the number of nights the camber was in camp before testing positive. Hume Lake has offered this to us, we are transferring this generosity to you!

PACKING LIST AND ACTIVITIES

Packing List

Bible, notebook, pencil, flashlight, sleeping bag, pillow, toiletries, warm and cool clothes, jacket, modest one-piece swimsuit (no tankinis), a towel for swimming and showering, spending money for activities and keepsakes. $100 is the recommended amount for spending money. (Remember: Girls no bare midriffs or spaghetti straps; guys, no sagging.)  If females cannot find a one-piece bathing suit, they will be required to wear a dark-colored shirt over their suit at all times. Students are not permitted to bring drugs (unless prescribed by a doctor), alcohol, tobacco, fireworks, firearms, and electronic devices.  Students are not permitted to bring or use phones at camp.

Dress Code

Modesty is the policy at Hume Lake, and they ask that special attention be given to fit, appropriateness and slogans. Also, shoes and shirts are required during all meals and around camp.

Hume Lake required that bathing suits be one-piece. Those without a one-piece suit may wear a dark colored t-shirt to cover a two piece. Hume Lake has provided us with the following examples that do not conform to the modesty concept: Girls - Extreme French cut bathing suits, low-cut and/or revealing necklines, open midriff, tops or dresses with spaghetti straps that are smaller than 1". Guys - speedos or underwear showing over pants/shorts that hang too low.

WAGON TRAIN

In the book of John, we see Jesus define himself as “the way, the truth, and the life” (John 14:6). This summer we will study the book of John in a fun and creative way in order for all students to learn that the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus is the truth that we need to build our lives upon and that his Word, the Bible is the revealed truth from which we can learn to know, grow, and love God. His truth is the real Gold! Don’t be fooled by the fool’s gold!

THEME VERSE: John 14:6
Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.”

Theme: Don't be Fooled

We live in a world where anything can be accepted as true and encourages us to define our own truth. Because of this, we are forced to ask, and answer the question, “Is there such a thing as absolute truth?” And if there is, how does that affect our lives? This summer we are going to take a look at the life of Jesus through the book of John to see how Jesus himself defines truth.

In Meadow Ranch, we will be placed in a Dog world where the court system is the end all be all. Our Jesus character is on trial before Pilate (John 18), and we will be watching the trial unfold throughout the week. Witnesses will come to the stand and testify about what they heard and saw Jesus do and say during His ministry on this Earth. Proclaiming Jesus as truth, just like he does all throughout the Scriptures.

Theme: Paw and Order

Meadow Ranch Speaker: Christopher Hilken

Super Spirit Day: Raining Cats and Dogs

THEME VERSE: John 18:37-38
Then Pilate said to him, “So you are a king?” Jesus answered, “You say that I am a king. For this purpose I was born and for this purpose I have come into the world— to bear witness to the truth. Everyone who is of the truth listens to my voice.” Pilate said to him, “What is truth?”

We live in a world where anything can be accepted as true and encourages us to define our own truth. Phrases such as “my truth,” “live your truth,” “do what’s true for you,” are used everyday. These phrases force us to ask, and answer, the question, “Is there such a thing as absolute truth?” And if there is, how does that affect our life?

This summer we are going to take a look at the life of Jesus through the book of John to see how Jesus himself defines truth. Our prayer as we study the book of John together is that we would respond with love and affection for Him and have a greater priority for and deeper understanding of the truth, His word.

Theme: Truth by Told
