Children’s Camps – Summer Fellowship
Every summer our campus is alive with spirited explorations for youngsters. Camp has never been more expanding, uplifting… or FUN! We know you will want to consider our fun, wholesome, and affordable opportunities for your children!
Musical Theater Camp (2 different camps)
Session One: We will introduce our version of a Patriotic USO style show. This is a traditional way of showing support for our troops. There will be songs, dance numbers, and comedy routines. Our goal with this camp is to raise money for “The Wounded Warrior Project”. It is an intense one-week musical/theatre program. This variety show will end with a performance on Friday night. All proceeds above cost for this camp will also be donated. We will be asking for a free-will offering at the performance. The camp is open to grades 3-12.*
Session Two: We will put on an original musical written just for our campers. The kids will learn how to sing, dance, and act. This is an intense one-week musical/theatre program. The camp will end with a performance on Friday night. The camp is open to Grades 3-12.*
*There will be a “Meet & Greet” audition the Saturday before both camps start so parts can be given on the first day of camp.

Photography Camp is an opportunity for participants to learn the basics of digital photography through daily demonstrations and hands-on sessions where they will learn the basics of camera operation, composition, lighting and seeing with an artistic eye. Each day they will shoot photos around the church campus using the information they have been presented. Students can bring their own camera so they can learn its functionality.

We will learn different cooking techniques and explore math and science concepts presented in cooking. Plus, we will listen to a story and make art projects that coincide with the special daily recipe. Please let us know if your child has any food allergies!

It is located in the San Bernardino National Forest, above Mentone, Ca. Each year we encourage the children and youth from our church to attend summer camp, along with hundreds of other Christian youth from Southern California and Nevada. For over 50 years Loch Leven has been helping our youth build relationships with Jesus Christ, creating opportunities to develop leadership skills, and bonding with others who share a love for God and the outdoors.
