What makes you wonder? What sparks your curiosity? What makes you want to explore, discover, and experiment? How can kids harness their curiosity to wonder about the God who made them?

When you’re curious about who God is, it’s easy to find ways to make your relationship with Jesus grow. That’s why, in this four-day camp, we’re going to engage kids’ imaginations!

Kids who will be in 6th or 7th grade next school year are invited to join the fun as a camp volunteer and join Hub & Hangar in the afternoon at service projects.  Register your child today.
