Slumber Falls Camp

Jesus is the LIGHT

SLUMBER FALLS BIBLE CAMP JUNE 4-6

Bring a Bible, lunch, hat, swim gear, water bottle and a great attitude!

9 AM- 3 PM  3610 River Road, New Braunfels, TX 78132  www.slumberfalls.org

Dear Parents and Slumber Falls Campers,

Slumber Falls Bible Day Camp planners and volunteers hope that each camper strengthens his/her spiritual knowledge and enjoys fellowship with other Christian youth.  Camp devotions, Bible Stories, crafts and music will emphasize how Jesus is a friend to all.

Slumber Falls provides a certified lifeguard during each swim time.  A nurse will also be in attendance at the camp during the day. 

IN ORDER TO TAKE CARE OF OUR ENVIRONMENT, PLEASE bring a WATER BOTTLE.  Being outdoors in June requires that the campers stay hydrated.  Individual water bottles allow us to eliminate using drinking cups.

Day Campers will need to wear closed toe shoes for their safety.  Also, each day, bring a lunch, swimsuit, and towel if you plan to swim.  We advise campers to wear sunscreen and possibly insect repellant. Hats are also advised during some outdoor activities. 

We have room for 5 boys and 5 girls from each church for the overnight.  The overnight campers should have completed 5th grade in May 2014. 

Overnight campers have the option of swimming an additional time period and if so, will need a second towel.  Please bring toiletries, sleepwear, sleeping bag or bedding, a pillow, flashlight and a change of clothes. Cabins are air-conditioned and showers are available.

Wednesday evening and dinner will be provided for the overnight campers and volunteers. Please plan to pick up your child Thursday, June 7 no later than 9 AM to avoid additional costs.

We look forward to enjoying the Slumber Falls Campgrounds and Bible based activities with your child.

Weekly Scripture

Mark 8.31-38 English Standard Version (ESV)

Jesus teaches Peter – and us – that following him costs us everything.

Jesus Foretells His Death and Resurrection

31 And he began to teach them that the Son of Man must suffer many things and be rejected by the elders and the chief priests and the scribes and be killed, and after three days rise again. 32 And he said this plainly. And Peter took him aside and began to rebuke him. 33 But turning and seeing his disciples, he rebuked Peter and said, “Get behind me, Satan! For you are not setting your mind on the things of God, but on the things of man.”

34 And calling the crowd to him with his disciples, he said to them, “If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross and follow me. 35 For whoever would save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for my sake and the gospel's will save it. 36 For what does it profit a man to gain the whole world and forfeit his soul? 37 For what can a man give in return for his soul? 38 For whoever is ashamed of me and of my words in this adulterous and sinful generation, of him will the Son of Man also be ashamed when he comes in the glory of his Father with the holy angels.
