Urban Kids Camp & Next Steps

“We saw Jesus on the mountain” was the chant heard by camp counselors and other adult staff at this year’s Urban Kids Camp and Next Step; where our themes where “I’ve Got Talent; Showcasing our work for Jesus  and “Staying on Point; Where there is no vision, the people perish Proverbs 29:18”.

Urban Kids Camp and Next Step is an outreach ministry positively impacting the lives of disadvantaged urban and inner-city children who have never experienced or cannot afford the life changing ministry of Camping. Our goal is to provide a contextually high quality camp experience that uplifts children’s esteem, develops new and deeper friendships and draws every participant closer to the Love of Christ.

We have two camps held simultaneously; Urban Kids Camp for children entering the 3rd, 4th and 5th grades and Next Step for youth entering the 6th, 7th and 8th grades. All attending camp enjoyed swimming, archery, campfire, arts and crafts and a host of other events all while being surrounded by bible study and worship. Next Step has an added component where camp is focused on helping young people reach healthy  Christian manhood & womanhood through “Rite-of-Passage and mentoring programming.

This year we had awesome time where several campers in both camps dedicate and re-dedicate their lives to Christ!

 Wanda Bethea is the Urban Kids Camp Co-Dean.
