Jam-Packed FUN!

All the Thrills of a Summer Week Wrapped into a full-throttle weekend! Adventure lies ahead in the Redwoods of Mount Hermon at this year’s Junior Getaway! These weekends are a chance to experience the beauty of God’s creation, make new friends, and be immersed in the life-transforming Truth. Join other 4th-6th graders as they experience camp in an intentional, life-changing way and embark on a journey of epic proportions.

Mr. J will be joining us as he and his troop present Junk Yard Dogs, the story of a junk yard captive named Bullseye hoping for freedom from his imprisonment. Junk Yard Dogs is a story like Moses and Pharaoh and, even more importantly, it is the story of the freedom that only Jesus brings to God’s children. Children will learn they weren’t made for the junk yard; they have been set free to serve their new master…Jesus! Mr. J and his troop will be with us for back-to-back weekends filled with worship, theater, biblical teaching, and of course tons of fun!
