First Timers

June 12-14

About this Session

We call this session "First Timers" because, for most of these campers, it will be the first time they've ever spent the night at camp! This is an especially important time in a young camper's life: learning to leave home, learn about God and spend time with peers. These campers get excited to pick out bunks and bond with friends in a new environment. We have a special spot in our hearts for this age group as it is a stepping stone in their personal and spiritual growth.

This session typically involves outdoor games and activities, Bible classes, missions time, worship, crafts and sometimes water play.

About Your Dean: David Schneller

When it comes to our youngest campers, this is not David's first rodeo: besides helping with the First Timers & Day Camp sessions in previous seasons, he also served at Fairview Christian Church in Bracken County as their Youth & Worship Minister. 

David and his wife, Stacey, currently attend Plum Creek Christian Church, where David continues to help lead worship.
