Crossings Kids Camp • Jonathan Creek • July 21- July 24, 2019
When King Josiah Chose Obedience
Join us in Summer 2019 as we take a crazy ride through the story of King Josiah as told in 2 Kings. Picture a time when God’s people are divided and in trouble. The Scriptures have long been neglected and the people are not living their lives for God—a time not so different from today. Then the whole scene gets flipped on its head when King Josiah rediscovers God’s book of the Law! There is much to learn from this captivating story of the young king who shows extraordinary faith, obedience, and determination to lead his life and his kingdom according to the words of Scripture. No matter your age, size, or status, God’s word must be what guides everything in life, even if the world thinks that’s a little topsy turvy!
What is Kids Camp like?
Crossings for Kids is a fast-paced, Christ-centered, kid-friendly camp for elementary children! Crossings provides exciting activities and outdoor adventures for all types of kids. At the heart of it all is our passion for building relationships with your children to help them cross over from death to life and more fully experience Christ. We guarantee they will get messy, loud, and crazy. But, most importantly, kids will experience Christ in a way they can understand!
What does a typical day of camp look like?
Mornings = Gospel + Heart Focus
A high-energy time every morning that includes lots of fun, live sketches, videos, announcements, games, and music. Morning Celebration ensures your kids are awake and ready to study God’s Word.
We separate middle and high school and give them in-depth exposition of God’s Word from our camp pastor followed by a staffer-led breakout time of discussion and application.
After Bible study, our staffers invest in your students via games, guided conversations, and hang out time. Our staffers are trained to build relationships with your students for the purpose of Gospel transformation.
Afternoons = High-Energy Indoor + Outdoor Activities
Points of Impact (POIs)
We make every moment intentional. At the end of each event, our staffers spend a few minutes discussing with students how that particular activity illustrates the Gospel.
Our premier properties offer private recreation lakes with lifeguards present at all times. Students have the opportunity to experience water zip-lines, blobs, water slides, and more.
During Connect, we encourage students to have personal quiet time in Bible Study and prayer. Devotional material based on the morning Bible study is provided to each student.
This is a designated time for you, the Group Leader, to connect with your students through devotions, discussions, team building activities, or simply hanging out.
Evening = Worship + Bible + Relationships
The worship service is the heartbeat of camp. During this evening gathering, we exalt Christ together in song, dig deep into the Word of God, and apply the Gospel to students’ lives.
The entire camp participates in these Crossings keynote experiences. These times are highlights of every camp week that foster unity, team-building, and allow for a little camp-wide controlled chaos.
We want to strengthen the relationship between students and their church leaders. This is a designated time for you to meet with your group, debrief, worship, and pray together.
Before lights out, the Shack opens to purchase tasty treats and refreshing beverages. This is a time for you and the staff to continue developing relationships with your students.
