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
In order to reveal truths hidden by God since the creation of the world, and to let us know that we cannot control God nor even our faith, Jesus speaks in parables. Matthew 13:31-35English Standard Version (ESV) The Mustard Seed and the Leaven 31 He put another parable before them, saying, “The kingdom of heaven is like a grain of mustard seed that a man took and sowed in his field. 32 It is the smallest of all seeds, but when it has grown it is larger than all the garden plants and becomes a tree, so that the birds of the air come and make nests in its branches.” 33 He told them another parable. “The kingdom of heaven is like leaven that a woman took and hid in three measures of flour, till it was all leavened.” Prophecy and Parables 34 All these things Jesus said to the crowds in parables; indeed, he said nothing to them without a parable. 35 This was to fulfill what was spoken by the prophet: “I will open my mouth in parables; I will utter what has been hidden since the foundation of the world.” The Parable of the Hidden Treasure 44 “The kingdom of heaven is like treasure hidden in a field, which a man found and covered up. Then in his joy he goes and sells all that he has and buys that field. The Parable of the Pearl of Great Value 45 “Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a merchant in search of fine pearls, 46 who, on finding one pearl of great value, went and sold all that he had and bought it. The Parable of the Net 47 “Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a net that was thrown into the sea and gathered fish of every kind. 48 When it was full, men drew it ashore and sat down and sorted the good into containers but threw away the bad. 49 So it will be at the end of the age. The angels will come out and separate the evil from the righteous 50 and throw them into the fiery furnace. In that place there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth. New and Old Treasures 51 “Have you understood all these things?” They said to him, “Yes.” 52 And he said to them, “Therefore every scribe who has been trained for the kingdom of heaven is like a master of a house, who brings out of his treasure what is new and what is old.”
