Fun from Start to Finish!
We tell every kid that camp will be the best week of their summer, and at the end of each camp, countless kids tell us that it was! The fun starts before kids even leave the church and doesn’t stop until their heads hit the pillow back at home. Great food, crazy games, swimming, mud, s’mores, hilarious skits, team activities, and more! Kids’ lives are changed at James River Kids Camp!
Trained and committed team leaders are excited to meet your kids and begin helping them build friendships with their team and a friendship with God.
With crazy skits, super fun characters, engaging games and awesome worship, our daily chapel services are designed to help kids experience God’s love in a way they will never forget.
Every day your child will swim, get muddy, and engage in fun team building activities to help them make friends for a life-time.
