Camp Promotion

Go to Camp Slide
GO TO CAMP in 2017!

Children, youth and parents are encouraged to checkout the camp table in the Gathering Hall.  We believe Christian discipleship can happen in powerful ways when young people take time away from their busy lives to listen for God in a camp setting.  We would like every family to consider a Christian Camp opportunity like: day camp, overnight camp, family camp, or FPC group camp (Massanetta Springs).  Camp opportunities are available for children as young as kindergarten through 12th grade.

There are MANY options for Christian Summer Camp.  So far this season we’re heard from:

 

                           

       

First Presbyterian also recognizes that summer camps can be expensive, so we are offering two kinds of assistance: 1) a flat $100 incentive per child per Christian summer camp to help with the cost of registration costs (paid directly to the family once we’ve received confirmation that the child is registered) or 2) if sending your child to camp is a financial hardship, we are offering scholarships (full and partial).

Complete the Camp Registration Incentive & Scholarship Form to apply.  Please register for camp early and take advantage of this generous promotion!

Questions?  Contact Todd Bowman or Maren Spray.

Massanetta Springs Music and Bible Conference
Massanetta Springs is our Presbytery Camp located in Harrisonburg, VA.  They offer a Church Music Conference for children, youth, and adults as well as a highly-regarded Bible Conference for adults.  Both conferences run concurrently July 23-29.  FPC attends as a group and shares a cottage.  This is the only camp we promote with adult options, and it can give families a chance to stay together while participating in age-specific activities during the day.

Summer’s Best 2 Weeks
SB2W is located in Boswell, PA, about a 2 ½ hour drive from Winchester.  The camp is open to 8-18 year olds and has a sports focus.  Registration for this camp is extremely competitive so register quickly!  Last year we had students on their wait list that were able to attend, so that is an option as well!
