What is Surf Camp?
Surf Camp is an off-campus (or on-campus) overnight retreat for children who have completed grades 3-5. This camp fills up fast and we are limited in our numbers, so register early!
Where are we going?
Off- campus: We will be going to Camp Grace near Macon, Georgia. We've been helping and supporting the efforts of Dave Pridemore as he's followed God's call to provide a camp for at-risk kids in Atlanta. We are so excited that we're able to partner with Dave and to have access to this beautiful, God built camp! Thank you Dave and thank you Jesus!
