TO LEARN MORE ABOUT ADVENTURE FOR THE CITY CLICK HERE

This summer, St. James is aiming to make camp more accessible to children in our community so that every child can experience Christ-like change through outdoor adventure, authentic relationships and Biblical truth.

St. James believes it is important to invest in children, to teach them the love of Christ and help them learn they are created in God’s image. Our hope is that this day camp helps make Christ the cornerstone of their lives now, so they'll grow up to be Godly men and women who proclaim the Gospel with boldness and grace.

Adventure for the Cityers will experience just about everything traditional away camps have to offer – from rock climbing to archery tag to soaking-wet water activities – supervised by the world's most energetic counselors. For one week, they'll worship with friends, explore God's unchanging Word and learn what it means to be a kid who follows Christ. The ends at 5pm with free time and parent pick up.  

Adventures for the City is August 7th – 11th

Cost: $220 if registered prior to Spring Break
