At Stepping Stones Summer Camp, kids will have fun, connect with nature, and make friends while exploring our theme –  “All God’s Critters.” 

We will learn what living things need to live – shelter, food, water, air, and community – and discover how God provides for all critters including us. Kids will enjoy Bible stories, art, games, STEM explorations and hands-on service projects. We’ll end the week with special guests from Curious Creatures!

Spots are limited so sign up today.

We are thrilled to offer camp as a free activity to families but please consider making a one-time donation that fits your budget to offset the cost of materials and activities.  Give to Camp
