WHAT DOES A KAMP DAY LOOK LIKE?

We start each morning with a rally consisting of games, songs, and silliness to get our blood pumping. After rally, groups travel through rotations of Bible, recreation, theme time (educational part of the day related to our weekly theme), and team time (small group free play). After lunch and morning rotations are our afternoon tracks. These track options are affinity-based activities that range from cooking to sports, sewing to singing. There is always some sort of fun for everyone! As the day winds down we have a closing rally where groups compete for the Spirit Piñata and gain valuable KampKup points for their team.
