Day Camps are generally held Monday to Friday from 9am to 3pm and offer a wonderful way to reach out to new young people and families in your community as well as encourage children in your own congregation to grow deeper in their faith during the summer. Many congregations also use day camps as an opportunity for older youth in their congregation to gain leadership experience as volunteer junior counselors, assisting alongside Living Water Ministries staff.
