Thousand Pines Winter Camps treat your students to a high-energy weekend filled with fun games, challenging speakers, and a chance to reconnect with the Lord. We work closely with our guest speakers and worship leaders to provide a seamless flow from chapel times to small group devotions so your students receive the biggest impact.
We have programs built for High School and Junior High students, as well as a Children's Program for 4th-6th grade students.
When light shines on something, it does two things: one, it exposes, which can be a little scary at first but it also brings freedom because you no longer stumble in the darkness. Our theme verse this year is John 12:46.
I have come into the world as a light, so that no one who believes in me should stay in darkness.
We are going to be looking at what it means to truly walk in the Light of Christ and to experience the freedom in Him. It's a call to those who know Christ already. Your students who already have a relationship with Christ may still have areas in their life where they are walking in darkness, and the call is to come into the Light. You may also have students that don't know Christ, that have yet to meet Him and have only experienced life in darkness.
We are so excited to have you here this winter season; maybe there will even be snow! We are going to have a lot of fun, and we can't wait to see you!
