Cru Adventure Camp for Kids
Each child is made in the image of God. It is our mission to value your child as a precious gift from God, teach them about this truth and to let them in on what God is doing through other children and adults around the world–and to share how God desires to live in and through them too.
CRU KID’S CLUB (BABIES AND TODDLERS)
These ages are amazing. Your child is learning! Learning they have value. Learning to talk, walk and explore. Therefore, we will provide a safe, loving environment for your child to explore through play, stories, music and crafts. Loving them in your absence. Our hope is that you can relax and take the time to enjoy the weekend knowing that we deeply value your precious child and plan to care for them as one loved by God.
CRU GOD SQUAD (GRADES K-6)
This age group plays and learns simultaneously. So we plan to play hard, and all the while teach them that they are beautiful children of God and that God has a wonderful adventure in store for them. Polly, our gifted teacher and Lori, our high energy children’s worship leader, will have them learning, singing and being silly with God. We will be enjoying field trips on the property, going on nature hikes, making pottery, treasure boxes and more.
Bring your child in comfortable clothing so they can best enjoy their time. The Squad will have dinner together in the meeting room, enjoying kid-friendly fare. The Squad will be open 30 minutes before the morning adult session begins and before dinner. Our hope is that you can relax knowing that your child is loving Adventure Camp.
CRU GLOBAL FORCE (GRADES 7-12)
Your teen! They are loved by God, have an incredible future, and with God living in and through them, they can influence their peers. They are a force of nature that God can use right now, where they are.
Our mission is for each student to leave with a better understanding that they are made in God’s image and that God sees them through Jesus as perfect, loved, and pure before Him. God has a plan for their life, but that plan can only be acted out when God is living in and through them. Plus, we plan to have tons of fun! The property is amazing and we plan to enjoy it. Each night, the Global Force will have dinner together at one of the property’s restaurants. Our hope is that you can confidently know that your child is being brought one step closer to the heart of God while having a blast.
