Register Now for Summer Opportunities
In spite of a long winter, spring has finally arrived and summer will be here soon (though not soon enough for students who are spending some summer days in school!). With summer comes opportunities to go to camps and overnights, or to go on a mission trip. Participation, however, requires advance planning and registration. Follow the links for each opportunity to learn more. Share this information with others and bring a van-load with you! Online registration and payment available for all events.
Kentucky Changers is wonderful hands-on missions experience for students in grades 7-12. Kentucky Changers goes way beyond a typical summer camp experience as students live out their faith while getting their hands dirty doing exterior home repairs for low-income families. Changers will be working in five locations this summer: Hopkinsville, Frankfort/Lawrenceburg, Richmond, Louisville and Henderson. Cost per person is $200 which includes housing, meals, and project materials. Peggy Murphy, Kentucky Changers Coordinator, welcomes adult volunteers as well as student participants.
Mission Adventure Camps & Overnights will be held at Cedar Crest, on the grounds of Cedarmore Conference Center near Bagdad in June. Three Monday to Friday camps for girls and boys in grades 3-6 and their leaders are offered in June. There are also two Mother/Daughter and Father/Son Overnights for children in grades 1-3 and parents (or another adult). In 2014 participants will go on a Missions Safari and learn about missions in Africa, including the Bucket Project.
The regular early bird rate for weeklong camps is $195 per student with a special rate of $25 for required chaperones. The early bird rate for overnights is $50 per person. These rates are in effect until May 1, 2014. While camps are coed, boys and girls stay in separate cabins and enjoy many gender specific special activities. In addition, we are offering $50 “Snow Special” discount for the first week of camp to encourage more participation by those who can come when so many others are still in school.
Overnights at the Creek will be held July 11-12 at Jonathan Creek Conference Center near Aurora. Three simultaneous overnights will be offered: Mother/Daughter for girls in grades 1-3 and moms (or another adult), GA Overnight for girls in grades 4-6 and leaders, and Acteens Splash for girls in grades 7-12 and leaders. The early bird rate for these overnights is $50 per person until June 1.
