Declare Camp

July 20th - July 22nd, 2018

$0 - $75

Dear FUMC parents,

Our children’s ministry department is excited to announce our very own inaugural children’s camp. This camp will be for children entering 1st through 5th grade and will take place from the evening of Friday, July 20 through the morning of Sunday, July 22 at Crosspoint camp located in Kingston, Oklahoma. It is our intention that “Declare” camp will become a tradition for the families of FUMC Ardmore to instill a deeper love of God in their children.

Through a grant received by the Kohaw Foundation, the vision we have long held for our own unique camping experience can now be a reality. The planning committee has already been hard at work collaborating on fresh ideas. This camping experience will include worship, curriculum taught by our very own college leaders, small group competition and fun evening events that we hope your children will remember for years to come. Our committee is longing for everything that we do at camp to lead your children into a deeper relationship and understanding of who Jesus Christ is in their lives.

Your child can attend Declare Camp with or without a parent attending. We will place your child into a cabin and small group with friends their age and gender. Each small group will be led by college leaders from our church throughout the entire weekend.

Parents are able to attend Declare camp with their children. We will have various jobs throughout the weekend for parents to help make camp great for their children. Parents will be staying in a cabin with their child if you are the same gender. If you are not the same gender you will not be allowed to stay in the same cabin. Please know by attending camp as a parent you are committed to making this weekend great for all the children who are participating and that you are there to help in any way needed.

We hope the kids in your life will join us for Declare Camp July 20-22. Just think: your kids can fall in love with God through a camping experience with leaders you already know personally. We would be honored to have them and love them like our own!
