2020 Summer Camp theme


Bee Mighty!

What is this theme about?

This summer, we are talking about what it means to be a part of God’s big story. You may be just one person, but the Bible is full of examples of how God uses unlikely people to do big things! We can also see this reflected in nature. it’s often the littlest things that have the biggest impact. So, what small things can we do every day to share the love of Jesus with everyone around us? When we trust and rely on God, those little choices we make add up to something mighty!

Theme Verse

Joshua 1:9: “Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the LORD your God is with you wherever you go.”

Bee Mighty theme Weekly Overview

Program components

What is Illumination Station?

Led by an On Site Director, this big group time, held directly after opening most days, consists of a brief activity that relates to the theme of the day, and a brief discussion on the Bee Mighty theme. Illumination Station is essential for introducing each day’s topic. Not only will campers have a chance to work hands on with aspects of the topic in a fun, educational activity, but they will also be able to connect the topic to Jesus and the Bible story they will hear later in the day.

What is Trail Talk?

This is the time of the day where the theme and lessons are described in a more closed setting. Instead of the upbeat, high energy of Opening and skits, this is a time for personal connection, a time where kids can reflect on the lessons. It should be established when the campers come to trail talk that it is a time they can dive deeper into God, the Bible, and anything else that arises. This may seem boring to some kids, but God has a wonderful way of working during all of these different times. Just think, when do they get to be in a place of nature, a place surrounded by God’s creation, where they are free to ask questions and wonder over such great distances in their minds and hearts?
