Dean:  Alex Goode
Grade:  4-5

Theme:  Make Room

In our Christmas themed week of camp, we will take the time to learn how to Make Room for God all year round. So many times in a child’s life, they will find themselves on a high for God after camp or a conference. During our week of camp, we are going to focus on the many ways to Make Room for God in our everyday lives. We will take the time to break down areas such as prayer and serving and how these things help us grow in our relationship with God. Going back to the moment in Luke 2:7 where Jesus was wrapped and laid in a manger because there was “no room in the inn,” we will focus on where it all started and how God should take priority in our lives 24/7, not just during holidays or camp.



All In (Youth Mission Trip)

June 4-9, 2017

Dean:  Jordan & Taylor Settles
Grade:  9-12
Cost:  $325
Theme:  Limitless

Formerly known as the Eastern KY Mission Trip, we have adopted the name “All In” starting this year.  We want to be “All In” for God no matter where he leads us to serve Him.  This year we will be traveling to Richwood, WV.  This is a coal mining community that is very impoverished and then was hit hard by extreme flooding last summer.  They are still trying to recover and we are going to help.  The exact projects that we will be working on have not been determined yet, but we will help people of this community physically and spiritually.  Of course we are not all work and no play, we have a blast with each other and we dive into the word of God.  This year we’re going to study the limitless bounds of God.  We’re going to dive deep into the statement: God is limitless, therefore I am limitless, but only if I trust God limitless.  If God is leading you to serve along side of us, we would love to have you come along.

Theme:  Outlaws for Jesus

During our week we will be examining some of God’s outlaws in the Bible as we strive to be outlaws ourselves by not conforming to this world but being transformed each day during our devotions, prayers and Bible Lessons.  We really get into this primitive outdoors thing.  We will be camping in primitive tee-pees, sleeping out in nature away from the lights and noise of the city, sitting around campfires and learning plenty of outdoor life skills including fire building, shooting bows, pellet guns and shotguns.  We will be tomahawk throwing, swimming, fishing and frog gigging.  We’ll even enjoy eating some of our catch.  We will be instructed in primitive survival skills and methods that might come in handy if you ever find yourself living out in the woods.  We will also spend time each day on a camp work project with instructors that will teach us how to build something with our own hands.  All of this while enjoying God’s wonderful creation.  You do not want to miss Outlaws for Jesus – Primitive Life Skills Camp

Angling & Aquatics
June 11-16, 2017

Dean:  Darnell White & Tommy White
Grade:  9-12

Cost:  $250

Theme:  Vessel

Vessel- a ship, plane, pitcher, vein - or YOU!  Allow God to use you as a vessel to carry his love, righteousness and peace as you learn to walk in faith.  But first, you will have to allow Him to empty your vessel, empty you of sin, self and the world.  Dare to be a beautifully designed vessel for Him to use daily for His ultimate purpose!  2 Timothy: 2 will be our guiding scripture for the week.  “Therefore, if anyone cleanses himself from these things which are dishonorable, disobedient and sinful, he will be a vessel for honor, sanctified (set apart for a special purpose), and useful to the Master, prepared for every good wood.” 2 Timothy 2:21

We will travel to the beautiful Lake Barkley and spend time in God’s word.  We will spend time worshiping God in song around the campfire, and listen to others share God’s word.  In addition, we will be meeting new people, sharing God’s love in a game or two of basketball, or round of putt-putt golf.  We will have a blast catching and eating fish, or swimming with them in the lake.  Or…maybe just swimming or tanning at the pool.  Don’t forget about taking out the kayaks, paddling the water on paddle boards or bouncing the waves on a tube.

Senior I

June 25- 30, 2017

Dean:  Seth Heller
Grade:  9-12
Cost:  $195

Theme:  Unexpected
Most of us live pretty normal, routine lives. Get up, Eat Breakfast, Go to School, Come Home, Eat dinner Go to Sleep. Repeat the next day. There may be a few pieces changed here or there, but overall this is your life. It goes by day by day and is just… normal. But what if there was something more, something greater? This summer at Senior 1 we are going to be taking a look at a person whose life became extraordinary when he encountered the Unexpected. This guy was named Elijah, and his obedience to God changed his life, and the world around him. We believe the same can happen to you. Be prepared to have some fun. Be prepared to make some memories. But most importantly, be prepared to see your life be radically altered when you encounter the Unexpected.




Girls Wilderness
June 25-30, 2017

Dean:  Nicole Cooper & Kayla Cooper
Grade:  6-8

Cost:  $195

Theme:  Focused

What’s your vision?  20/20?  20/50? 20/100?  Do you wear glasses?  How about contacts?  Most of us have had an eye exam - whether it was at school or with an optometrist.  I don’t know about you, but I get so nervous when I have to read the letters on the eye chart!  I feel like my life depends on whether I get the letters right or wrong.  I mean, the results will tell me if I can see well, or if I can’t.  It really is an important test.  In a way, our life DOES depend on our vision….but not just the quality of our eyesight.  An optometrist will never ask you “Do you see like your Savior?”, but isn’t this the most important vision we have?  


Unlike our actual eyesight, a vision like Christ’s is something we can work on.  We can’t really practice to get better eyesight, but we can change things about ourselves and our lifestyle to view this world like Christ would.  We CAN practice to have a more heavenly focus.  Sure, there will be things to cloud our vision at times.  Have you ever had an eyelash in your eye, dust, or just had cloudy vision for a few minutes?  Things in this world can do the same thing to mess with our vision of others, ourselves, and of this world!  From school, to social media, to friends, to sports, to television…..there are so many distractions that cause us to lose sight of what God thinks is important, and what WE should think is important.


Matthew 6:22 says, “The eye is the lamp of the body.  If your eyes are healthy, your whole body will be full of light.”  The only way to have healthy eyes is to have eyes like Jesus.  Jesus is that light within us!  If your eyes are healthy, that light should be shining bright for all to see.  This week, be ready to dig into scripture to figure out how to have eyes like Jesus so that you can be full of light.  How do we get 20/20 vision like Him?  Are we focused on what really matters?  Let’s get focused together!

Wilderness I

July 2-7, 2017

Dean:  Todd & Connie Hill
Grade:  5-6
Cost:  $195

Theme:   CAMO

CAMO what do you think of when you hear the word camo? Most of us think of hunting, military, or good ole country folk. We will look at what the Bible says about camo. What does it mean for the Jesus follower? We are to be hidden in Christ, not in the world. We will look at how we can do this through team challenges, teaching times, Scripture memorization and other activities such as target shooting, archery, creek time. Come join us for a fun filled week!



Junior II

July 9-14, 2017

Dean:  Jacob Cox
Grade:  4-5
Cost:  $195

Theme:  Mind of Christ

Paul said, “You must have the same attitude that Christ Jesus had” (Philippians 2:5). We at Junior II want to help you keep that command. When Jesus said, “the Kingdom of God is within you” (Luke 17:21), He was emphasizing an inner process of becoming more like Him. The place where that happens is the mind. That’s where God desires to work. Each day of this week, as we have fun together, we will understand what God expects of us as we develop the mind of Christ.




Wilderness II

July 9-14, 2017
Dean:  Darnell & Holli White
Grade:  7-8
Cost:  $195

Theme:  Undignified

Le’s dance like David!  Let’s be undignified for the Lord!  This week, we are in the wilderness, where there is no one to impress - but God!  God deserves our worship offerings in every area of our lives.  He desires for us to be undignified according to worldly standards.  This week, we will have a blast getting comfortable with being undignified for God!  We will dance, we will sing, we will serve, we will work, we will read, we will learn, we will pray and we will play!  Join us for “Faculty Dancing Under the Stars” and vote for your favorite contestant.  Compete to be the week’s “Ultimate Wilderness Ninja”. You will want to get your new and old friends together to join you in “ Wilderness’s Got Talent”.  Or maybe you’d rather sign up for “No Fear Factor”?  Then everyone can compete in the “Amazing Race” as your teams take on each other.  

Join us as we learn to love and worship God as David did as he said, “I will become even more undignified than this, and I will be humiliated in my own eyes.”  2 Samuel 6:22  And we will not even care!

In addition to all of the recommendations for your week of camp, make sure to bring plenty of old clothes and old tennis shoes so we can play in the creek!



Eastern KY Mission Trip
July 15-22, 2017

Dean:  Dale McCauley

Ages:  15 and up

Cost:  $425

Theme:  Chain Breaker  






Intermediate II

July 16-21, 2017
Dean:  Terry Cooper
Grade:  6-8
Cost:  $195
Theme: One

Most people don’t think about “one” as significant, but what if you looked at “one” differently. What if “one” was used to describe the reality of Jesus Christ?

One voice in the dark, One breath that gives life, One sovereign in power, One Lord, One King, One that never changes, One who reigns forever, One Man on the cross, One light of the world, One name, One Word, One way to be saved, One lamb that was slain, One love, One and only Son of God...ONE TRUE GOD!

Now do you see “one” differently? This is the goal for our week of camp in 2017. To communicate the “One” whose name is Jesus!




Wilderness III

July 16-21, 2017
Dean:  Brandon Dulaney
Grade:  9-12
Cost:  $195
Theme:  Death Defeated

Emergence of death in the fall- God did not create us in sin, we chose it.  We separated ourselves, and now suffer the consequences.  “The wages of sin is death.”


The impact of death on creation - further explanation of those consequences such as pains in child birth, working the land, animal sacrifices, separation from the garden.


Jesus Life (big example is Lazarus) - Jesus came to defeat death.  “I came that you may have life, and have it abundantly.”  He heals sickness and casts out demons, both of which resulted from the fall, and then He brings back Lazarus, showing that He is more powerful than the fall.


How Jesus defeats death - Everything led, even from right after the fall when God predicts the Satan’s eventual defeat, to Jesus on the cross.  From the many prophecies, to the examples of Abraham with his son, God was leading it up to the eventual moment where Jesus would defeat death.


Life after death (How we live differently now that death is defeated.) - Jesus came so that the burden of sin and guilt and the repetition of animal sacrifices constantly being necessary would no longer be on us.  The second part of John 10:10 “have life, and have it abundantly” shows how we can rest in that grace and carry out his plan for us free of the shackles of guilt and shame.  We still one day will “die” on this earth, but our spirits will go on living for eternity.  




Senior II

July 23-28, 2017
Dean:  Will Cooper
Grade:  9-12
Cost:  $195
Theme:  UNSTOPPABLE

 If their plan comes from human authority, it will fail.  But if it is from God, you will not be able to stop them.  You might even be fighting against God himself!  - Acts 5:38-39 NCV

In Acts 1:8, as Jesus is leaving his apostles to go into heaven, he tell them, “You will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, in Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth”.  This challenge will begin the work of the Church - the Unstoppable Movement of God.  Throughout the early life of the Church in Acts 1-12, the authorities and rulers of the Jewish people will try many times to stop the work that Jesus set his apostles out to accomplish.  But the work of the Church, led by the Holy Spirit, would prove to be UNSTOPPABLE.  What would your life look like if you allowed the Holy Spirit to work through you as part of that UNSTOPPABLE movement?

During Senior 2, 2017, we will study Acts Chapters 1-12 and follow the movement of the Apostles as they set out to reach the world with the Gospel message of Jesus Christ.  We will then take a look at our lives and see just what is possible if we are led by the Spirit of God to do the work of God that he has in store for each and every one of us.  The work of the Church today is not easy, but if Jesus is leading, it will be UNSTOPPABLE.
