Day Camp is an opportunity for you to bring the spirit of camp to your congregation and community for a week during the summer!

Build Community and Faith for Children Ages 5-12!

Day Camp is an amazing way to reach your community with the love of Christ! By providing this week long experience for young children from your church and community, you provide a safe environment for families to engage the gospel daily in ways that are fun, educational, and transformative.

An energetic staff of young adults, trained by Living Water Ministries, delivers a flexible, fun, community-centered program focused on sharing God’s love and forgiveness. Living Water Ministries will collaborate with your congregation to tailor the experience to your needs.  We’ve had congregations offer Day Camp in the evenings, for half-day experiences, and full day experiences.  While we provide a curriculum and programming, we welcome ideas that are most relevant and meaningful to your context.  We will coordinate with you to provide a safe and healthy environment for everyone.  We’re here to work with you!

We will provide all supplies and programming for Bible study, arts and crafts, recreation, music, worship, nature activities and other special activities. Congregations provide host families and meals for staff, extra volunteers as needed, and on the ground support.

Day Camps are most commonly held Monday to Friday from 9am to 3pm and offer a wonderful way to reach out to new young people and families in your community as well as encourage children in your own congregation to grow deeper in their faith during the summer. Many congregations also use day camps as an opportunity for older youth in their congregation to gain leadership experience as volunteer junior counselors, assisting alongside Living Water Ministries staff.
