True Girl and Born to Be Brave present:
71% of you said your kids are missing camp this summer! So we're bringing it to your backyard!
There’s no doubt that the American staple of summer camp is going to be missed by many this year. That’s not just significant in that it allows mom and dad to have a week off, but Christian camps have proven to provide lasting spiritual impact. Participants in one study who attended religious camp as teenagers or youth were significantly more likely in their young adult years to participate in communal religious practices like group Bible studies, college religious groups, and church attendance than those who never attended summer camp.
True Girl and Born to Be Brave have joined together to bring you Camp Staycation—a collection of seven pre-planned parent-child connection experiences created to provide spiritual encounters. This year you can experience the camp high with your child, providing long-term family impact!
Mark your calendars for the big event— our live online family campfire July 24th!
RESERVE YOUR SPOT AT THE VIRTUAL CAMPFIRE RIGHT NOW
The ages of 7-13 are key development years as your child begins to develop his or her own set of beliefs. What happens when Christian camp—a formative experience with God—gets cancelled? That’s easy. We use it to remind ourselves as parents that we're supposed to be in the driver's seat of our kids' spiritual development.
True Girl and Born to Be Brave are partnering for a family event on July 24th as the peak of our Camp Staycation parent-driven family impact activities. During the online family campfire, your 7 to 12-year-old will explore the concept of identity with you guiding the conversation.
Who are you? What’s your true identity? And what determines who you are? Is it your family? Your friends? Your gender? Your personality? Your religion?
What if the readjustment of our schedules and realignment of our priorities is a tool God is using not just for us to make it through in survival mode, but to give us the opportunity to lay the foundation for our kids to truly thrive?
During the first portion of our online family campfire, your children will:
- explore the concept of identity.
- understand how our family puts a safety filter on life.
- get honest about how our friendships filter us—for good or bad.
- learn about the filter we all need to see correctly—a faith filter!
- play interactive, competitive parents vs kids games!
- hang out with The True Girl Cast.
- hear Bible teaching from Bob & Dannah Gresh.
The digital experience can be followed by a real live campfire at home where you guide a follow-up time of sharing using our Camp Staycation faith filter conversation guide.
