Christian camps share the love
of God with their campers while
offering an activity-packed week of
fun. But camp is about more than
just fun – camp changes lives!
While at a Christian camp,
kids can learn that they have a
purpose in life and that they were
created for a reason.
Exploring new activities at
camp offers many opportunities
for personal and spiritual growth.
A Christian camp can teach
children they are truly valuable
– a precious creation by a loving
God. They not only experience the
outdoors, they also engage with
the one who created and sustains
every plant and animal!
Christian camp staff view their
jobs as an important ministry.
They are called by God to show
love and kindness to their campers, to provide good examples
and be positive role models. Their
sole purpose at camp is to make
sure the children at camp have
fun, stay safe and experience the
love of God.
Every child is welcome and
equally valued, just as God equally
values all His children. This
nurturing, inclusive environment is
unparalleled, and it’s why Christian

Give your kids a lifetime of
memories next summer
For many people summer camp
is one of the sweetest memories
of childhood. It is at camp that
we form some of our first real
friendships, learn new skills, gain
independence, and begin to really
see the connection between ourselves and the rest of the world.
Camp gives kids confidence to
grow and explore, arms them with
skills that will serve them well the
rest of their lives, and gives them
memories they will always treasure. And, camp is fun!
Camp Cherith is no exception.
Through sports, crafts, camp
songs, team-building exercises
and more, Cherith provides campers with a safe environment in
which to learn, grow and explore
the world around them.
