Day Camp and Bible Themes (Themes rotate through a four year cycle.)

Mountain Doo Dayz- (2017, 2021, 2025) There are fun-filled days with 'coon skin hats' and patches on the overalls. Campers play the challenging game of "Goofy Golf" like hillbillies with walnuts and special stick clubs. "Hey mama, what's fur dinner"? It is whatever campers can shoot at the "Hillbilly Cookin'" archery activity. Lastly, campers experience the "Bible Challenge Course" combining an obstacle course with Moses' journey. The Bible theme is centered on the 10 Commandments with memory verses of Psalm 119:33-35. While we teach the importance of the sabbath day, we do not single out a specific day of the week.

Indian Summer Days- (2018, 2022, 2026) Campers learn about the heritage of native Americans. They head "ouSluice 800x688t west" in a covered wagon, only to discover they are low on water and must explore an old Indian trail. They learn how to use markers to lead the way to a good stream in "Indian Trail". The "Dino Dig" is an activity where campers become paleontologists to uncover and identify bones. Finally, campers create and act out Indian legends in "Earth Tales", performing them at worship time. The Bible theme is focused on creation and campers learn the days of creation and memory verses of Psalm 19:1-4a and Psalm 139:13-14.

Knights in Shining Armor- (2019, 2023, 2027) Campers begin their quest as knights in training. They will "Storm the Castle" using catapults in hope of retrieving stolen gems with a lesson on forgiveness. They continue their training by completing a spy mission to find a king and kingdom suitable for their lives in "Kings and Kingdoms". Lastly, knights design their own castles by building amazing sand castle sculptures with a little help from their counselors. The Bible theme is how to put on the Armor of God and memory verses of Ephesians 6:10-17.

Gold Rush Days- (2016, 2020, 2024) Campers travel back in time to the old frontier days of the gold rush. In "Trek West" greenhorn miners hitch up their team and pack all their belongings for the journey west with Zachariah guiding the way to stake their gold claim. The great Klondike gold rush is on in the Yukon Territory and Seattle has gold fever. Campers must buy tickets, supplies, and equipment to begin their long journey. They must pass inspection of the mounted police to enter into Canada to search for river gold in "Klondike Gold". Finally, in "Zeke's Gold", Darleen leads the covered wagon where the dearly departed Zeke left his gold for campers to pan. The wooden sluice is up and running and each miner gets to keep what they find. The Bible theme incorporates "wicked vs. righteous" with memory verses of Psalm 1:1-6.
