Middle School Camps are our traditional camp programs for students who will be entering 6th, 7th, or 8th grade in the fall. Campers stay in our fully climate-controlled dorms, eat all meals in our dining hall, and enjoy many of the camp activities such as the giant slip and slide, the swimming pool, canoeing, volleyball, Archery Tag, and much more.
Camper check-in will be from 4:00 to 5:00 PM on Sunday, June 6. We will end on Friday at 5:30 PM.
Mahoning Valley's 2021 summer camp theme is Focus, and we are spending the summer looking at setting our priorities in a way that honors God. Worship is more than just singing, and it's more than an hour on Sunday morning. True worship is a lifestyle of making God the most important part of our lives and setting our focus on honoring Him. Romans 12:1-2 says “Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship. 2 Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.” (NIV) While it will look a little different for each age group, we will spend our teaching times this summer talking about what it means to be transformed by the renewing of our minds and what it means to focus our lives on worshipping Christ.
All camps sessions this summer will also be joined by Phil and Elizabeth Maddux from MMS Aviation. MMS Aviation prepares people and planes for worldwide missionary service by refurbishing, maintaining, and repairing small aircraft used in missions, and through an apprenticeship training program that covers both maintenance and pilot skills for future missionaries. You can read more about MMS Aviation and their work at www.mmsaviation.org.
Levi Monk of the New Heights Christian Church (Connersville) and Tim Kelley of the Liberty Church of Christ will be serving as the co-Deans of Campers for this session.
Middle School Camp is only $250 if you register by May 17 ($290 after that).
