In 2019, GraceKids joined the rest of the youth in the Gulf Atlantic Diocese at Camp Araminta and had an amazing time! All 22 of our campers and 4 camp counselors loved every second and can’t wait to return! This summer we’d like to bring even more to come alongside us as we learn more about becoming a disciple of Christ while having a blast at camp!
Camp Araminta is a community of believers that have a passion for youth, for strengthening their walk with God, and building each other up in fellowship with other Christian youth. Each year, students are taught one of the five essential components of discipleship (Creation, Gospel, Community, Holiness, and Mission) among an intergenerational mentorship program.
The daily components include camp activities like tubing, swimming, crafts, music, archery, canoeing, ropes course, games, etc. But students are also introduced to formative discipleship components such as morning and evening prayer, quiet times, cabin time with their counselors, learning with their discipleship group, and a daily talk given by the camp clergy tied to the five essential components.
Students entering 4th grade and above are invited to this one-week sleep-away camp in Lake Swan, FL. The camp seeks to encourage Christian community, fellowship, discipleship, and accountability. Contact Jessica Jones with any questions or click here to learn how to register for this year’s camp.
