About Our 2024 Camp Theme

From God breathing life into the soil in Genesis 2, to a victorious King in 2 Chronicles who cared for the land as a way of caring for the people, to Luke’s Parable of the Sower, soil is used throughout the Bible as signs of faith, care, and wellbeing.

Soil for the Soul explores how we nourish our souls and create fertile ground for more good things to grow, be harvested, and shared with others. Campers will examine the communities and practices that support their spiritual lives, discover how followers of God are called to live, and discern how they can live their faith in the world. This curriculum will provide a strong foundation for the spiritual lives of campers to grow and bloom!
