  • Prayer
  • Daily Bible studies
  • Devotional book reading and discussion
  • Service – Junior Servant-Leaders will learn to lead like Jesus as they serve alongside a Day Camp Counselor, helping them set up, facilitate, and participate in many of the activities of Day Camp
  • Interacting with and helping the Day Camp campers, while showing them the love of Jesus
  • JSL teambuilding activities

All campers in attendance will receive a complimentary t-shirt, water bottle, journal, and a copy of the summer devotional book.

“Feed the Dog is a video-driven Bible study for middle and high school students (grades 7-12). Through the artistry of illusion and his unique gift of evangelism, Brock Gill guides students to realize the importance of nourishing the spirit through the daily practice of spiritual disciplines. Over the course of eight sessions, students will learn that spiritual disciplines are something we develop over time. With practice and perseverance, students will be able to discern the truth and focus on what’s important. They will “taste and see that the Lord is good” (Ps. 34:8), growing in their relationship with Christ and pointing others to Him.”
