What is Camp Canaan?
Named after the Promised Land that the Israelites entered, Camp Canaan is a weeklong summer camp for grade school age students that provides an opportunity for our older teens to serve as counselors. We come together with other churches to create a fun environment to learn the Bible with a community of friends. It is a customized camp experience for our students in order to teach them about God at this young and vital age.
Parents serve as teachers and older students get to experience life as a counselor by working with our adults. These teens learn valuable leadership skills by caring for and leading the young campers.
When is it?
The 2021 session will take place June 13-17 with the staff arriving the day before for orientation.
Where is it?
The camp takes place at Brookhaven Retreat Center in Hawkins, TX.
Who can go?
Students who have finished the 2nd through 5th grade can attend as campers. Teens wishing to be counselors must be at least 16 years old.
