Ribbit Camp gives 2nd-4th graders several days away to explore how God’s love is experienced and shared. Through crafts, games and storytelling, we will discover how God is with us during the whole year. Campers will experience a full week’s worth of camp adventure in a half-week schedule! Perfect for first-time campers who may not be quite ready for a full week away or campers looking for a shorter experience.
Campers should expect to drop off at 10 a.m., Wednesday, July 5 and pick up at 10:30 a.m., Saturday, July 8.
