February 28, 2019

CLIFTON, TEX. – Every year, Texas Conference Youth and Young Adult Ministries hosts a summer camp. This year's theme for summer camp at Lake Whitney Ranch in Clifton, Tex., is Reckless: God’s Love Changes Everything.

Paulo Tenorio, Texas Conference youth and young adult director, will oversee the camp program. In addition to having fun, he wants each camper to go back home with their best friend, Jesus. “Learning to talk to and hear God’s word is crucial in a Christian’s life,” Tenorio shared.

Some activities available this summer include archery, canoeing, crafts, fishing, go karts, horseback riding, tubing, skiing, mountain biking, geocaching, model rocketry, cake decorating and more.

This year’s dates are:

June 9-16 | Cub | ages 7 to 9

June 16-23 | Junior | ages 10-12

June 23-July 30 | Tween | ages 12-14

June 30-July 7 | Teen | ages 14-17

For the second year, there is a summer camp for young adults ages 18-35 from July 9-13.

The website offers a typical schedule for camp as well as detailed information about the activities.

In addition to the camps at Lake Whitney Ranch, there is a day camp at the Valley Grande Adventist Academy Campus for ages 7-17 from July 22-26.

"Summer camp is life-changing," Tenorio added. "We have a lot of fun with the young people, but we also share God's word in creative ways."
