Registration NOW for CentriKid Camp (preteens)! CentriKid is… an overnight camp for completed 3rd – 5th graders to experience the time of their lives and learn more about the message of Jesus Christ! Camps are staffed by college and seminary students who can’t wait to hang out with your kids and love to share Christ through every aspect of camp! At CentriKid, we promise to free your hands of all the little distractions associated with kids ministry. For one week out of the year, hand us the clipboard. We’ll handle lunch, plan Bible Study, set up Recreation, organize leaders, and lead Worship sessions. A child’s spiritual life can be greatly impacted by their home environment, church involvement, and unique experiences like camp. CentriKid is committed to providing a place for kids to get away—even for a little while—to hear loud and clear that God loves them and has a plan for their lives. Safety in our programming, within relationships, and on campus are top priorities. We believe powerful things can happen when kids feel safe to be a kid!

CentriKids Camp is July 19-23, 2021 – Louisiana College, Pineville LA. The cost $350.00 per student. Camp is for completed 3rd – 5th grade students only. Register here: https://bayarea.church/kidsevents/  *There are a LIMITED number of spaces for camp this year. Spots are reserved only when ALL action steps are fulfilled.
