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 6.1-13 English Standard Version (ESV)

In the face of widespread resistance, Jesus remains confident and resilient… and even sends you and me out into it

Jesus Rejected at Nazareth

6 He went away from there and came to his hometown, and his disciples followed him. 2 And on the Sabbath he began to teach in the synagogue, and many who heard him were astonished, saying, “Where did this man get these things? What is the wisdom given to him? How are such mighty works done by his hands? 3 Is not this the carpenter, the son of Mary and brother of James and Joses and Judas and Simon? And are not his sisters here with us?” And they took offense at him. 4 And Jesus said to them, “A prophet is not without honor, except in his hometown and among his relatives and in his own household.” 5 And he could do no mighty work there, except that he laid his hands on a few sick people and healed them. 6 And he marveled because of their unbelief.

And he went about among the villages teaching.

Jesus Sends Out the Twelve Apostles

7 And he called the twelve and began to send them out two by two, and gave them authority over the unclean spirits. 8 He charged them to take nothing for their journey except a staff—no bread, no bag, no money in their belts— 9 but to wear sandals and not put on two tunics.10 And he said to them, “Whenever you enter a house, stay there until you depart from there. 11 And if any place will not receive you and they will not listen to you, when you leave, shake off the dust that is on your feet as a testimony against them.” 12 So they went out and proclaimed that people should repent. 13 And they cast out many demons and anointed with oil many who were sick and healed them.
