Come for an overnight summer camp you will never forget!
Join hundreds of campers across the state as they seek out a summer of adventure, excitement and a chance to deepen their appreciation of God’s creation. A wide variety of camps offer every kid an opportunity to experience God in a new way during these overnight summer camps. Each week may be different, but campers are guaranteed a week they will never forget with wilderness exploration, crafts, team sports, faith-building exercises and classic summer camp and waterfront activities.
Infuse Core Camps are held at four locations across Missouri in order to meet the unique needs of each camp. The directors and counselors volunteer their time to be at camp, showing their dedication to patiently share God’s love in a creative way that kids can understand. Being at an overnight summer camp fully immerses campers in a Christian community, so they quickly forget about any technological distraction. Although it may look a little different, core camping is still infusing a relationship with Christ into the hearts of our campers. Find an overnight summer camp that fits your camper!

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. "

Infuse Core Camps are focused on providing an immersive experience for youth to separate themselves from the chaos of everyday life in order to focus on their relationship with the Lord. Although they will be disconnected from electronics, parents will be able to keep up with their students through email and a Flickr site with pictures. A “Know Before You Go” email will be sent to all parents two weeks before the camp begins that will include any information you will need to know such as drop off and pick up time, packing list, picture link, address, and any special instructions. Check the FAQs pages for more specific information. Due to the wide variety of overnight summer camps throughout the summer, every age from 3rd grade to seniors in high school will have a spot in a camp. Safe Sanctuary certified counselors will be trained to lead each age group according to their unique needs.
Although each campground provides different amenities and activities to suit the various Infuse Core Camps there is a wide range of activities such as swimming, hiking, gaga ball, water games, crafts, ultimate frisbee, fishing, archery, nine square, and much more. Students will be able to connect relationally and spiritually through worship, small group Bible study and discussion, service, and leadership opportunities.
