Scripture Memory Camp

Earn a Fun Week of Camp by Memorizing Scripture!

Scripture Memory Camp is an opportunity to step away from the busyness of everyday life and enjoy a week of fun, fellowship, and—most importantly—Scripture. Each morning begins with a lakeside devotional and Bible study, followed by an afternoon of recreation and fun. In the evening, campers gather in the gymnasium for singing and a message from God’s Word. You’ll meet new friends, grow in your memorization skills, and have a blast with special activities. Don’t miss the fun!
