2015 IBSA Children's Camps

IBSA Children's Camps
This summer, Illinois Baptist churches can choose between four full-week opportunities for children 3rd - 6th grade.

The theme, "Treasure Island: Discovering Truth and Our Mission to the World," is designed to help kids learn how to be missionaries by sharing the gospel every day.

The children's camps will have many of the same elements as IBSA's former missions camps for kids, including a missions-focused guest speaker, said Pastor Scott Slone of FBC Elkville. He works with IBSA's Church Resources Team to plan events at Lake Sallateeska.

The 2015 children's camps are facilitated in partnership with local associations and churches. For example, Nine Mile Baptist Association has been doing an associational children's camp for several years, but this year they're working in partnership with IBSA and Metro East Association to open up registration to all churches. They will facilitate week two of camp at Lake Sallateeska, while the other camps will be organized and directed by fellow associations or local churches.

"The goal is to make it possible for all IBSA churches to participate in children's camp by giving them a variety of schedules to choose from," Slone said.

Children's camps are week-long camping experiences for boys and girls. Camps are mission focused giving participants the opportunity to learn how to be missionaries each day by telling the Good News of Jesus. Cost is $135 per person.
