It's CAMP time again! The 2017 Midsouth Covenant Camp will be July 30–August 5 on the grounds of Frontier Camp in east Texas. Your children won't want to miss this EXCITING week for students 2nd through 9th grade (as of Fall, 2017)! This is a great spiritual opportunity for LIFEKids and LIFEYouth students [and friends] because the camp's primary goal is to expose each camper to the love, knowledge, and saving power of Jesus Christ in a fun, outdoor setting. This year, the camp theme will be "Seva–Jesus Style." “Seva” is a Sanskrit word meaning “selfless service” or work performed without any thought of reward or repayment.
LIFEChurch is part of the ECC [Evangelical Covenant Church] Midsouth Conference. Each summer a wonderful line-up of games, lessons and super activities are held at Frontier Camp, located on 75 acres of the scenic east Texas piney woods near Grapeland, Texas and is laced with trails for hiking and horseback riding. The camp has air-conditioned cabins, dining hall, meeting room, chapel, trading post, large athletic field, stable and corral, rodeo arena and outdoor gym. A beautiful beach with a large campfire circle is on the shoreline of Houston County Lake. Frontier Camp is licensed by the Texas Department of Health and is accredited by the American Camp Association.
While at Frontier Camp, campers can participate in: water weenie, campfires, crafts, kayaking, horseback riding, water slides, tubing, rope swing, archery, wake boarding, nature walks, riflery, swimming, climbing wall, sports, canoeing, zip line, rodeo, paddle boats, skate park and volleyball.
