Summer Camps Breakdown

The countdown is truly on. Five days. That's it! FIVE DAYS until registrations start pouring in. When the countdown to the right of what you're reading hits "0" we can officially say that summer is coming.

In light of camp registration opening up - I thought I would run through what each camp looks like, feels like, and what your son or daughter can expect so that you can make a more informed choice when January 3rd comes around next week. This would be a good blog to pass around to your friends who are thinking about registering their kids in camps. We understand that the first time you sign your kids up for camp can be a daunting one - hopefully, this will make it easier. If you would like a more in depth description of each camp, just head to our Summer Camps page on the website and click "More Info" next to any camp to find out more.

We've got three different types of camps! We break down our camps into three categories: Base Camps, Out-Trips, and …

A very Merry Christmas to all of our Evergreeners this year! Christmas is special for a number of reasons. One of which is that is marks 6 months until our Summer Staff arrive to start training for Summer Camp. Wowzers. The most important thing is that it is the time that we celebrate the birth of our Lord, Jesus Christ.

Christmas is often a time for families to be gathering together to celebrate the holidays and the special season. It is also a tough time for some. Our prayers are with all of our Evergreen community. No matter where you are - we want to wish you a Merry Christmas and remind you of the hope and love that we celebrate this time of year.

John 3:16 says that, "For God so loved the world that He gave his one and only son that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life.".

In a few days we celebrate the night that Jesus came into the world. We celebrate how hope and love and peace came in the form of a tiny baby laid in a manger.

I can barely believe that 2017 is less than three weeks away. Can you? December and Christmas always seem like busy times and then to lump 2017 into that...Wowzers. I always get so excited about what is coming at this time of year - so much so that I forget to be thankful for today. So don't forget to slow down a bit today and take a moment to be thankful for what's around you.

There is 19 days (January 3rd at 9am!!) until we kick off Registration for Children and Youth Camps for Summer 2017. There's also our Family Camps which filled up in only three days last year - Registration opens for Family Camps on February 2nd! 

Our Theme for 2017 is SHINE based out of Matthew 5:14:
"You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden."
We're so pumped about all of the good things coming at us in 2017. It's not even just Summer Camp! We've got our Pond Hockey Tournament Fundraiser coming up, our Rise 'n' Shine (Jr. High Retreat), and…
