FAQ | What is Summer in the Son?

This is a one-week camp centered on helping develop closer relationships with God and those around us. This is accomplished through daily participation in Bible class, worship, small group interaction, group games, fun activities and crafts. Each day we take 15-20 minutes to be alone with God and each evening we huddle around the campfire for a devotional thought before we head to be bed. Available activities throughout the week include archery, paddle boats, swimming at the pool in Burlingame, KS, time at the creek (if safety conditions are met), field games, etc.
