Parents, we take your trust in us to care for your kids for a week very seriously. Below you will find several communications from the directors explaining what camp is, what you and your child can expect, and anything we need you to do to help us ensure a fun, Spirit-filled week for your children!
Letter to Parents | Parent Prep Info for Camp | Packing for Camp
We look forward to an amazing registration for our 24th year of camp! Bless the Lord!! We are excited to welcome new families attending for the first time. Just as the Lord’s mercies are fresh with each dawn, each summer camp brings new and fresh faces and blessings.
As in the past 23 years, we will have a very skilled, enthusiastic, and dedicated staff preparing to serve your children. We are expecting campers from Pennsylvania, Ohio, Maryland, Virginia, New Jersey and from as far away as Florida and Canada! We thank you for considering People of God Summer Camp for your child’s spiritual enrichment and growth in the body of Christ. We will be ready to welcome your child in the love of Christ on July 24, 2022 (1pm) at:
POG Summer Camp / All Saints U.O.C. Campground
110 All Saints Road, Scrubgrass Township
Emlenton, PA 16373
Be assured that while your daughter or son is at camp, they will be carefully supervised with each day being scheduled and well organized. Your child will be assigned to a cabin staffed with 2 adults ( head counselor and assistant counselor), as well as a teenage junior counselor. Before camp week your child’s head counselor will reach out by phone to speak with your child for a brief introduction. Your help is needed to facilitate this very important connection about 2 weeks before camp.
During camp week July 24-30th, there will be a wide variety of interesting activities, gatherings, campfires, and games. Each day will include skits, Bible studies, and prayer times. One of the biggest highlights is the "Gathering for Christ" on Wednesday night. Each child will receive prayer for the Baptism in the Holy Spirit, as well as spiritual gifts of the Holy Spirit, and/or whatever need the camper may express. Overall, our aim is to create a highly Christian environment in which the campers can meet God and have a very enjoyable time.
Camp week concludes with a special Parents’ Program at 10:00 AM on Saturday, July 30th, 2022. It will include the presentation of cabin awards to honor the children’s growth in virtues modeled at camp such as compassion, sportsmanship, scripture memorization, service, cabin cleanliness, unity, perseverance, and enthusiasm!
We hope you can attend. It will last about an hour. Then, at about 11:30 AM, camp will close, and you will be able to take your campers home.
If any questions arise as you are considering POG Summer camp for your child, please reach out to us at email@example.com. We look forward to the joy and privilege of serving your child. We are truly blessed to be a part of this mission.
As He Leads,
Joel Pepmeyer, Summer Camp director
