Covenant Family Camp

The Mission Springs program department created these special weekend camps for Adults Only! Our programs are designed to help you Renew your Wonder, Revive you faith, and Refocus on your purpose.

Everyone loves a good story. During the week together, we will participate in fun theme competitions, exciting activities, special off-site trips, family recreation and games, and teaching and worship that will enhance our time together.

We have special things planned for all ages. There will be activities that will bring families closer, teaching that will help us grow deeper in our faith, seminars that will challenge our thinking, kids programs that will provide learning and laughter, and food that will knock your socks off.

This will be an amazing, life-changing week, and we hope you will invite friends and family to join us. To encourage this, we are offering a $100 discount off of your family’s registration for any new family you invite that registers for the full week and stays in Mission Springs housing. That family will also receive a $100 discount. How does that sound?
