Camp Next Gen (previously Camp Bonnie Doone from 2006-2015) is open to all of our middle school students and those who are rising 6th grade. We will also be prayerfully choosing a small number of high school students to attend who we believe are future leaders, they will be trained and given responsibilities throughout the week. This camp is the centerpiece of our year and so we want every student to join us! In 2018 we had approx 60+ students and leaders attend, as we grew closer to Jesus and each other.

Camp Kinard is in Batesburg-Leesville, SC. Which is west of Columbia in the Midlands area. With almost 300 acres of beautiful grounds including a large lake we will have another fantastic week!

From the evening meetings to the small groups, and the sports, the crafts, the music, the snack bar, the kayaks, the large swimming pool, the games, we have a wonderful week learning more about Jesus and growing closer together as a community.

With a ratio of one leader to every 2-3 students the camp is well staffed, and the leaders are college students and parents from our own church who have been working with the students for at least a year already. The staff at Camp Kinard and our Leaders will take care of any emergencies or medications that your child requires.

We strongly ask that your child stay the whole week and not leave early, even on the Friday so as not to miss out or draw attention away from the focus of the week for the other students.
