It’s Summer Camp Time
CLIFTON, TEX. – As this issue is going to print, we are making plans for in-person summer camp at Lake Whitney Ranch. Virtual camp in 2020 was fun, but it definitely did not have the same impact.
“Summer camp has a significant impact on the religious life of staff, campers and their families... 83% of camp staff said their time at camp helped to influence their career choice, making summer camp one of the most effective training grounds for future leaders,” shared North American Division Camp Ministry office research.
LWR summer programs are more than a fun week away from home. Yes, you will have fun driving go karts, riding horses, skiing on Lake Whitney, making crafts, attending classes, plus other awesome activities. But LWR’s main purpose is to develop relationships, relationships with each other and a lasting one with our creator.
When you attend summer camp, you become part of a family—a family that centers itself on God and His word. We seek to encourage each other to a deeper relationship with God.
The LWR summer camp program is designed for people ages 7 to 35. The 2021 summer camp schedule includes:
Cub/Jr Week (ages 7-11) June 13-18
Tween Week (ages 12-14) June 20-25
Teen Week (ages 15-17) June 27-July 2
Young Adult (ages 18-35) July 6-11
To register for any of the above weeks, visit txyouth.org/summercamp.
