Letter from our Youth Pastors
“Every year Summer Camp is the most impactful thing that the youth of our church take part in. Incredible things happen when Middle and High school students leave home and their everyday surroundings to set apart 5 days in the summer to pursue Jesus. Something clicks when your environment shifts, it provides opportunity for growth, change, new friendships, new experiences, and most importantly hearing from God.
We have a lot of fun, partying is a core value, and we make sure NO ONE is left out. We sincerely believe in what God is going to do on June 19th - June 23rd and INVITE YOU to come(youth) or send your young person (parents) to Summer Camp 2017."

City First Church Summer Camp 2017
June 19th - 23rd
Open to all 7th Grade - Graduated Senior Students
4 Main Parts
Experience God - Worship Experiences
Do you want to experience God in a REAL and tangible way? Do you want to dance so hard you can’t breathe and sing so loud you lose your voice? Do you want to become a better and stronger person? Do you want to break free from some of the things holding you down? Do you want to FEEL the love of Jesus?
Summer Camp Worship Experiences are unlike any other. Every night we gather, we see God do amazing things. Whether it’s through worship, the message, creative storytelling, or a quiet moment at the altar, you will have a chance to encounter God in a FRESH way.
Our nights are specifically designed to blow your mind, get your hands in the air, and pursue God. We party the night away, lifting up the name of Jesus and thanking Him for everything He’s done in our lives. At every experience we use creativity and energy, focused on one central theme from the Bible, to grow closer to God. After a Summer Camp worship experience, your relationship with God will never be the same and there is a very high chance you’ll have confetti in your hair.
Make Memories - Life Groups
At City First Church we believe that CIRCLES are better than ROWS and that NO ONE should do life alone. How we do Summer Camp is NO EXCEPTION! You’ll spend almost every part of your time on Summer Camp 2017 with your LIFE GROUP! Sitting in service, at the beach, your cabin, late nights at the SNACK SHACK, and even the BLOB you’ll be surrounded by some of your best friends and have a chance to make new ones!
Life Groups will meet every morning at camp to TALK and ASK QUESTIONS about who God is and the truth we’ll be diving into at our evening worship experiences! We believe in the VOICES of students and that as a middle or high school student you shouldn’t just be TALKED TO but that you should get a chance to SPEAK.
If you’re not in a YOUTH life group, DON’T WORRY, we have NEW students from across the Stateline Area joining every week. Ask one of your friends you go to YOUTH with about their life group OR Click Here to Circle Up.
Run Free - Free Time
Summer Camp is an important part of ANYONE’S Summer Vacation experience. Everyday you will have time set aside to do WHATEVER YOU WANT! Ok, not really WHATEVER you want BUT there’s some really great options for how you can spend your FREE TIME:
- Tanning or swimming at the Beach
- Launching sky high on the Blob
- Throwing down at Gaga Ball
- S’mores at a Bonfire
- Late nights at the Snack Shack
- Shooting hoops
- Skating the skatepark
- And SO MUCH MORE!
Summer is for FREEDOM and Summer Camp is no exception, we provide time everyday where you get to CHOOSE what you do. We guarantee you and your friends will create some memories that you’ll never forget!
