Parents, we invite you to send your youth ages 8-16 to our fourth outdoor Youth Bible Camp. This time we will be engaging in an in-depth study of the life of Abraham at Lindisfarne Camp near Timaru. Campers will study Genesis 12-25 for 15+ hours during the week and engage in group discussions of what they have learned. In the process, they will learn inductive Bible study skills we hope they will use the rest of their lives.
In addition, we will be eating great food, singing, praying, hiking, and sharing our talents with one another. Great friendships are always made at our camps, and we've got a great team of adult leaders who really care about the campers.
As a reminder, campers from previous camps will need to have completed past workbooks in order to attend this camp.
If you've got any questions, please contact us. If you're ready to sign up your youth, please do so at the link below.
