Summer Camps 2017
We want to share the message of God’s overwhelming love with our campers. Our approach to proclaiming the Gospel is thoughtful and relational. The relationships that counselors forge with their campers are the bridge to moving closer to Christ. Whether the decision to follow Christ is at an invitation during “Camp Fire” or in their cabin surrounded by friends, our counselors are trained to be there during this moment of celebration.
Parents, guardians, or grandparents are you attending Annual Conference and would like to see your youth grow in spirit as you do? Bring them along with you and have them attend Annual Conference Camp at Camp Comeca. Youth will participate in opening worship at Annual Conference then depart for camp. At Comeca campers will enjoy prayer, worship, bible study, swimming, archery, boating, hiking, and so much more. Then on the 10th we will return to Grand Island
