First, we would like to thank you for your interest in our summer youth camp. Camp Refuge is a summer camp for students that are in the 7th - 12th grade. This will be our 8th year for camp refuge, God has done some amazing things in lives of students through this camp.
We recognize and give him all the glory for the success that we have been able to see over the past years. We believe that God can, has, and will move in a person's life in any avenue that he sees fit, but we have seen youth camp be a place that he continuously uses to move through the lives of teenagers. We started this camp with the desire to ultimately see God work and change lives for the advancement of His Kingdom and the salvation of his people. We also desired to provide a place for a youth ministry to come that has sound biblical teaching and worship, an environment of focus on the Lord, and have a week to grow together in unity and in the Lord.
We are very excited about Refuge 2019 and hope you will join us!
