DAY CAMPS: GROW SPIRITUALLY, SOCIALLY, INDIVIDUALLY
You can find a day camp for just about anything. What about one focused on forming faith and friendships?

Grow Day Camps puts 90+ years of experience into creating an environment where every moment - whether in morning chapel or 20 feet up a tree - is about practicing faith in Christian community.

Grow is setting up camp at Grace UMC the week of July 2-6! Learn more and register your rising 1st-6th grader at growdaycamps.org.
