Christian camp program set

WASHINGTON, Iowa — Crooked Creek Christian Camp near Washington, Iowa, is hosting a summer camp program.

Camp is offered for youth ages 5 through grade 12 in June and July.

For overnight camp, kids will experience life in a cabin with other kids their ages. The relationship kids form with other campers and staff can be formative in their Christian walk.

Each camp will explore how the jubilee lifestyle was spelled out in the Old Testament, practiced and broken throughout the history of God’s people. Campers will celebrate the coming of Jesus and how people are once again given a chance to create community, reclaim and live within jubilee; a concept Christians can all create, practice and believe.

For information, visit the website www.crookedcreekcamp.org or call 319-653-3611.
