Older Elementary Extreme Camp is dedicated to helping 4th, 5th, and 6th grade students begin their journey as a Christian by identifying who is Jesus Christ. Through daily bible studies, worship services, and fun activities, we will discover what it means to be a Christian and understand the fundamentals of our faith. Throughout the week, we will participate in swimming, team building games, and faith based activities to bring us all closer together as disciples for Christ!

My name is Stephanie Smith and I have been the director of Senior High Leadership Camp for the past 8 years, but am now becoming the Older Elementary Director. This camp originally started at Camp Galilee in 2008 and has since moved to the beautiful campus of Central Methodist University in Fayette.
Over the past 15 summers, I have worked as a core staff, counselor, and director for the United Methodist summer camp program. As a result, I have witnessed the joy and growth of many youth as they experience Christ at camp.
When I’m not at camp, I work at our church as the Director of Student Ministries and as a full-time mom to our two children. My husband and I have been married for almost ten years and actually met at church camp. As a family, we enjoy spending time together, being outside, and taking care of our animals (dogs, cats, bunnies, turtles and chickens).
Every summer, though, I look forward to directing camp, seeing familiar faces and meeting new friends. It is my goal for Senior High Leadership camp to help campers develop and enhance their leadership skills, so they can return to camp as counselors, directors, and/or to their churches as equipped servant leaders.

STUFF NOT TO BRING
Parents can send emails to their campers at Camps2k15@gmail.com. Parents will need to put their camper’s name and the name of the camp they are attending in the subject line. Camp staff will check the email account daily and distribute emails during meal times or other time decided upon with the camp director.
Pictures will be uploaded as time and Wi-Fi permits to our Flickr account. You should receive a specific link to the appropriate account two weeks prior to the start of camp in your “Know Before You Go” letter. For Summer 2018 Camps click the link below to view your photos.
The number one question we received at camp was “What about this Bible?” We gave away over 20 Bibles at camp. We had on little girl who came, and her friend’s mom came and talked to me. She said that her daughter was embarrassed because she had to borrow her grandmother’s bible for camp, and it was awful because it had all these old words in it. Not only did we give her a Bible, but we gave her little brother a Bible as well. And I just loved it because they had been coming to Upward Basketball but had never come to church. It wasn’t until after camp that they felt confident in doing that.
Why do I return to Kamp? "It's more for the love of others. It's easy to go somewhere just because you can but you won't really achieve or learn anything by doing so. To go somewhere you love and are loved by those who understand you and can relate, that's a treasure. By going to a place like that you learn from others and , in turn, they learn from you. "
