FIRM was excited to take over 20 kids to Care Camp 2015 at Calvin Crest during the week of August 2 – August 7! Care Fresno has been running Care Camp for six years and this year marked the first year that FIRM has sent kids to camp.
At camp, kids do all of the traditional fun camp things, while also learning about the Gospel of Jesus Christ. This year’s theme was “What is Love?” and looked closely at how the love of Jesus was revealed as He laid down His life for us (John 15:13).
The Care Fresno FIRM site leader, Mai Chai Yang and three other volunteers served as counselors in the cabins with the kids and the FIRM Executive Director, Zachary Darrah served as the Camp Pastor. During the week, over 50 kids made first time commitments to follow Jesus and over 20 kids made the decision to be baptized! Some of our very own FIRM kids also made decisions for Jesus and one of the kids we took to camp was also baptized! This has been an incredible experience and we look forward to taking kids to camp for many years into the future!
