ignite mobile camp

Action-packed Ignite Mobile Camp - July 29-Aug. 2 - brings the fun of camp to you. Get ready for five full days of exciting activities, adventures and learning about God. The camp is designed for ages 6-12.

Highly trained college-age staff does life-on-life ministry with every camper. Campers have the option to choose from one of three incredible activity options: technology, athletics, and creativity. With the opportunity to either develop an area in which they are already gifted or stretch themselves to learn new things, campers can continue to grow into who God envisioned them to be!

  • Technology: Love video games? Tech is the right option for you! Campers will either have the opportunity to either build and program their own computer or create and design their own video game from scratch.
  • Athletics: If running around, being competitive, and playing a variety of sports is your thing, choose athletic. Our counselors will spend time leading campers in games like football, soccer, kickball and more. 
  • Creative: Would you rather spend time creating and designing your own unique projects? Choose creative. Our well-trained counselors will assist you in creating a variety of art and writing projects during the week with the opportunity to share those gifts with your family and fellow campers on the final day of camp.
