Our theme this year is “Put on the Full Armor of God - The Battle is REAL!” where campers will explore, through the scriptures, the belt of TRUTH, breastplate of RIGHTEOUSNESS, feet to spread the gospel of PEACE, shield of FAITH, helmet of SALVATION, and sword of the SPIRIT. Join us for this open service where we reaffirm our covenant with God to be His hands and feet in service to our homeowners and beyond!

There will be a program featuring a slideshow of pictures of workers on their sites making repairs on selected homes.
