This is a question I get asked every summer at least once. And for good reason! Sending your kids to a fun, exciting camp is great. But if there is not a corresponding refreshing and emphasis on the Spirit of God, then it’s like a bun with no hamburger! It’s been well researched that a significant number of kids get saved, filled with the Holy Spirit, and have their life-time calling confirmed by the Holy Spirit at good solid kids camps every year. It’s not just a place to have fun. It can be a place of great spiritual destiny.
So, I asked a group of Spirit-filled kids pastors and ministers about camps they were aware of that would fit the bill. Some of these camps I am aware of and can whole-heartedly endorse. Others I don’t know at all, so in every case you will need to personally research each one and do your due diligence. Unfortunately, most of these are in the United States. So international leaders will need to do their own research.
Some of these camps are going on right now, so we’re behind! Sorry! HOWEVER, you should sign up for their newsletters so that next year you have a heads up far in advance.
