The Lighthouse at The Matts Summer Camp (a collaborative program with LifePath Christian Ministries), Mondays through Fridays 9:00am-4:00pm Our camp is divided into three groups: Primaries (grades 1-3), Middlers (grades 4-5), and Juniors (grades 6-8). Each group gets the chance to experience many great trips that display the blessings God has given to us on Earth. For our day camp, every Monday and Thursday are park days, Tuesday and Friday are pool days, and Wednesday is our tour day. The last day of day camp, all three groups venture off to spend the day at an amusement park to celebrate the ending of the Summer. We also offer a 5-day overnight camp. All three groups travel to a selected Christian campground and experience life away from the city to help the campers become mentally, emotionally, and spiritually closer to the Lord. The campers will participate in activities including but not limited to bible study, swimming, boating, zip lining, rock climbing, sports and games, hiking, campfire, skit night, etc. This is a great opportunity for campers to discover who they are in Christ and establish a stronger relationship with God.
