Join your friends (old and new) for Girl’s Mission Camp 2017! Our theme “Dive In” will challenge campers wherever they are in their journeys to love God more and to love others more. The theme Scripture is Luke 10:27–28 (NIrV): “He answered, ‘“Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul. Love him with all your strength and with all your mind.” And, “Love your neighbor as you love yourself.”’ ‘You have answered correctly,’ Jesus replied. ‘Do that, and you will live.’” Through Bible-based activities and fellowship, campers are provided foundational knowledge of Christian principles as well as practical ways to share their faith and testimony. Along with fun activities that encourage physical and mental development, campers are involved in exciting, fun activities and camaraderie; they are also involved in activities that provide practical as well as challenging Christian development.
