Stronghold Day Camp

The congregations of Peotone again partnered with Stronghold Camp and Retreat Center to provide a unique day camp experience for kids finisheing Kindergarten through 6th grade. It was held June17- June 21, 2019 from 9:00am until 3:00pm each day. Kids too old for camp were welcomed as volunteer helpers!

Stronghold brings in the counselors and plans all the activities of the day, Peotone churches provide volunteers to

support the counselors and make sure nothing is overlooked.  There were counselors from London, Wales, Mexico, Brazil and even one from Wisonsin. Each day the kids enjoy a wide variety of activities, many different crafts, great lunches and snacks and they all have the opportunity to learn more about the Bible. Over 100 kids attended this year, having fun and learning about Jesus. Please enjoy the slide show below to see a glimpse of what a great week the kids enjoyed!
                        Hope to see you next year at camp!  (Dates for 2020 are:  June 22-26)
