Camp Good News

Camp Good News® is a day camp filled with fun activities and learning for children. Children must be ages 5 – 12 years, kindergarten through 6th grade. If you have questions about age please contact the camp director. Camp runs for 5 days, 8:30 am – 5:00 pm, and is staffed by trained volunteers and local CEF® staff.

Children playing with a parachute!

Each day has a new memory verse and Bible lesson, with songs and games during the morning. In the afternoon, the children get to enjoy water fun and swimming at the Clemens Pool, along with a time for missions and fun crafts that match the camp’s theme. On the last day, we also have a Camp program which parents are encouraged to attend.
