Breakaway Day Camp has been filled to capacity for summer 2021. We want to thank everyone who signed up for camp this year!
Be sure to stay connected with our webpage as we continue to post weekly updates of what we get up to over the next three weeks! 

BDC weekly update: week 1

What an incredible first week of Breakaway Day Camp for summer 2021! The halls were filled with team chants, crazy hairstyles, and many smiling faces! We had an altar call on Thursday and over 35 children accept Christ as their Lord and Savior! Each child took home their very own Bible that same day. Friday was water day, and the rain came and went allowing everyone to enjoy a day on the church lawn with water guns, a dunk tank, and so much more! Take a look at the pictures below to see what we got up to this week!

BDC weekly update: week 2

Our second week at BDC has come to a close, but what an awesome week it was! The theme for this week was Runaway Railroad. Our classrooms were turned into train stations and scenic destinations! Campers got to make their very own train using around-the-house items such as buttons, toilet paper rolls, and bottle caps. On Thursday, we had our altar call and 27 campers committed their hearts to Christ! Take a look below at what we got up to this week!

BDC weekly update: week 3

This summer is just flying by! We can't believe week 3 of BDC is already over! This past Wednesday was miss-match day. Many campers and staff got into the spirit of miss-match day by wearing two different shoes, crazy socks, and clashing colors. We had 17 campers come to Christ this week! Each week we have seen the Lord work in the hearts of our campers and we are so incredibly blessed to be a part of it!

we're all about kids

Kids are our inspiration for camp and we think they're awesome! Our trained and loving counselors and staff bring high-energy and fun to each day. We keep the ratios small, so friendships can be fostered and individualized attention can be given to your child.  Beyond the 4 weeks at camp, we offer a weekly 4REAL Children's Ministry for ages 3 years to 6th grade, a vibrant youth ministry for jr. & sr. high, as well as the beloved Upward Basketball league.
