Creekwood Kids small group leaders will be attending camp with your kids as the camp counselors.

The camp will provide staff to run the camp and services. Creekwood provides the counselors.

Will my kids be in a life group with kids from other churches?

No. Creekwood Kids will stay together with Creekwood leaders so we can continue to disciple and invest in your kids’ spiritual growth back home.

There will be one adult for every seven kids.

What is 4th & 5th Grade Kids Camp like?

It’s a Christian summer camp with Worship services and Life Groups as a focus that make up the two most important parts of a day at Camp. Worship services include drama, worship music from Kids Life Worship, and sound biblical teaching from age- appropriate communicators. Life Groups are made up of 9-12 kids and one or two Adult Life Group Leaders. Kids spend much of their organized Camp time with their Life Group.
