Registration for Summer Camp 2020 is now LIVE! We know the past couple months have been less than ideal. Your teenager has been through a shift in everything from routines and family life, to church and friendships. At Summer Camp, we provide a distraction-free opportunity for your student to grow in their relationship with God - all while having a good time. Your student will experience high energy worship, relevant messages, deeper connections with other students and Ark Youth leaders. Our prayer is that your student will emerge from their camp experience with a renewed sense of identity and purpose.
