teen camp



God created us to be in community with each other, and what better way to do this than being with each other at SWO/EKD camp?


This week is designed to be jam-packed with opportunities for students to play, create, relax, worship, and make memories that will last a lifetime!  


We strongly believe that this week is also about building life-changing relationships, first with God, then with others.  We believe that we build our relationships with God through worship, through applying what we hear in the Word, and through the time we have with our small groups and prayer.


We then build relationships with each other with fellowship, food, sports, games, and activities. We also have the opportunity to partner with our church family in the Eastern Kentucky District (EKD) so that we can build relationships with other people in our field. 


If you haven’t experienced SWO/EKD camp, come and find out what it’s all about!  It’s truly going to be one of the best weeks of your summer, and you won’t want to miss it!  Registration opens in the late Spring of 2024... don't miss out!
