Camps/Events

campsJCP is celebrating 60 consecutive years of Christian camping during the summer of 2014. We have grown from one event, for teens, for one week in July of 1954, to several events for a variety of age groupings in 2014. We now annually provide the following: Beginner Camp (7-8 yr. olds), Junior Camp (9-10), Intermediate Camp (11-12), Chi-Rho Camp (13-15), CIT (15-16), NSCYF Event(s) (14-19), DiscipleFest (Family Camp) (all ages) and CWF Retreat (ladies). Please check on each of these camping events for more details and how to apply. Hope you will plan to be with us and to help create some camping history during the Summer of 2016.
