Is your 6th Grader ready for camp?

Every year we head to a nearby summer camp facility for a weekend packed with high-energy main sessions, worship, teaching, small group time, messy games and lots of fun just for sixth graders. New sixth graders are divided into “squads” with their small groups to help them bond with their new leaders and group members.

WHEN: AUGUST 26-28, 2022


6th Grade Camp is August 26-28, 2022 at Woodlands Camp

Woodlands Camp is located in Cleveland, GA. The address for the camp is 1242 Old Blue Creek Rd, Cleveland, GA 30528.

Yes, we will have trained medical professionals present throughout the event.

Our nurses, along with your student’s small group leaders, will help ensure your student takes their medication correctly.

We wish to respect and partner with you as parents, ensuring that your student has an excellent camp experience. There are however a few things that will cause your student to be removed from camp: We will not tolerate fighting. We will not allow drugs, alcohol, or any form of tobacco. If problems arise we will ask you to come pick up your child.

Please complete this Time Away Form to indicate when we can expect your student at Woodlands Camp.

While we want to leave the communication line open, we ask that both students and parents respect the “retreat” environment. Part of the experience for students is to get away from their normal schedule and spend a weekend interacting with other students and connecting with God.
