Camp kids had a great time this year! The Creation Museum and Ark Encounter present Biblical and scientific evidence – contrasting and comparing with naturalistic views in an engaging and effective manner. We also made a stop at the John Rankin House in Ripley, Ohio, where Rev. Rankin and others were part of the ‘underground railroad’ during the War Between the States. Photos from both weeks of camp are below!
Welcome to Camp Rise and Shine, where you’ll experience an exciting, fun-filled time of camping in God’s wonderful outdoors! Enjoy crafts, skits, great food, Bible lessons, games, nature walks and more!
We believe that the Christian camp experience offers an array of teachable moments:
- The Camp Setting. “The heavens declare the glory of God, the skies proclaim the work of His hands” Psalm 19:1. God reveals truths about Himself through His creation.
- Relationship Building. Camp provides an opportunity to spend unbroken days together with Christian friends and mentors. Camp is learning and sharing together in a group setting.
- New Experiences. Camp replaces everyday sameness with new experiences. New games and challenges, role models, music, Bible study, personal reflection, encounters with God, and new friends all add to the memories!
2023 Camp Rise and Shine – Creation Museum and Ark Encounter Road Trip!
“In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.” Genesis 1:1 in the Bible opens with these profound words, and John 1:1 opens with the same phrase: “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made.” These statements, along with the account of the worldwide flood in Genesis chapter 7 are among the most hotly debated claims of the Bible!

Our campers carefully examined the clues from God’s Word, and solved every mystery we could throw at them – Sgt. Joe Thursday declares this case to be officially CLOSED! We sure had a great time, aside from a skinned knee or two, and look forward to seeing everyone next year (and maybe some new campers, too!). Tap through to examine our case documentation and see how much fun (and learning) we had!

WE WANT YOU! to join us at Camp Rise and Shine, where we’ll dig into an exciting week of camping in God’s wonderful outdoors! The week will be filled with fun games and recreational activities, swimming, hiking and exploring, great food, engaging Bible stories, lessons, skits, crafts, singing, and much more!
At this year’s camp, campers will put on their thinking caps, grab their magnifying glasses and begin investigating cases from the Bible that raise some serious questions. In the process of examining the issues and considering the evidence needed to solve each case, we’ll learn that we can trust God’s plan, even when it may seem mysterious to us. We hope you’re as excited to get on the case as we are!
- July 10–15 (Sun–Fri) – Boys aged 7-16
- July 17–22 (Sun–Fri) – Girls aged 7-16
