For a camp experience that changes campers from the inside out!
Branching Out has everything you need for up to 7 days of camp programming. You will find suggestions for overnights and retreats and even helpful guides to make your programming last as long as your camp does.
The Bible stories in Branching Out encourage campers to use prayer, relationships, family, and more to stay connected throughout their lives.
This summer, remind your campers that they can take that camp-feeling with them everywhere they go. Remind them that they are connected to one another and to God by Christ. The Bible stories in Branching Out encourage campers to use prayer, relationships, family, and more to stay connected throughout their lives. Learn more about Branching Out here!
Day Camp contains 8-weeks of unique activities designed specifically around the Day Camp setting, with early morning and afternoon activities, Bible studies, daily snacks, closing devotions, and week-long projects. Using the same theme and Scripture references as the complete residential outdoor ministry resource, Branching Out Day Camp Only will energize your day campers.
Day Camp is included in the full version of Branching Out, but for churches or groups that only need the Day Camp material, a separate resource is also available. Learn more about Branching Out Day Camp Only here!
InsideOut: Christian Resources for Outdoor Ministries
This resource has a four-year sequence that zeroes in on clear teaching objectives. The rotation ensures returning campers will explore the fullness of God, who they are created to be, and what they are called to do.
- Fearless Faith: Courage in Community is not just about campers “making friends at camp, enjoying nature, and challenging themselves,” but how campers can create lasting communities in Christ to become a part of and gain support from. This community can help them stand up to mistrust, enemies, injustice, and fear itself.
- Power Up! Living in the Spirit is not just “learning about” but more “learning how” — how to live as a follower of Jesus Christ powered up by the Holy Spirit! The daily guides offer fun, age-appropriate plans for younger children (ages 7-9), older children (ages 10-12), younger youth (ages 12-14), older youth (ages 15-18), intergenerational/family groups with preschool adaptations, and day camp (six full weeks).
- Get Real: Finding Your True Self in Jesus is firmly rooted in scripture and helps campers know Jesus and love him. There’s a lot of fake out there. In a culture of manicured online profiles, electronically altered images, and relentless deception in advertising, it’s difficult to know who our friends are and whom we can trust. Not to mention how easy it is to buckle under the pressure and try to become the images we see. We all must seek our own real identity from a trustworthy source.
- All Things New. From the very beginning, we have experienced God as Creator. God creates order out of chaos. God creates beauty with colors and contrasts of light and dark. This camp curriculum helps campers and camp leaders see God at work around us as we explore the fullness of God, who we are created to be, and what we are called to do.
