CAMP GOOD NEWS

CEF offers great weeks of camp every summer: Camp Good News Day Camp, for grades 2-6, and Kiddie Camp, geared to age 4, kindergarten, and first grade. Day camps cover several weeks in the summer during the months of July and August. All camps are staffed by volunteers, summer staff, and full-time staff. All staff comply with CEF's Our Beliefs and Child Abuse Policies, as well as PA State requirements.

The purpose of our day camps matches that of the ministry as a whole - to reach boys and girls with the good news of Jesus and to encourage the believing child in a walk of faith. Day camp is an exceptional place for this to happen, with excitement, fun, high energy, team spirit, and sincere, caring leaders and teachers.

Games and sports, like Gaga Ball and Tube Tug
Archery and Slingshots

Interactive stories from the Bible
Exciting missionary story
Surprise Time

5-Day-Club

5- Day Clubs are held for five consecutive days during the summer months in community areas, day cares, and homes. They are part of our summer short-term missions and are led by excellently-trained high school and college-age young people. In line with our purpose, the 5-Day Club is a place for children to hear the Gospel and for believing children to be challenged to grow in their walk with the Lord. The club also introduces the children to the mission field that is all around them and in other countries around the world.


Short-Term Summer Missions

SUMMER MISSIONARY MINISTRY OPPORTUNITY

High school and college-age young people are given a unique opportunity to experience missions first-hand. Summer Missionaries are leaders in Camp Good News and Kiddie Camp.
