Middle School

In Calvary Middle School Ministry, we’re focused on helping students in grades 6–8 to "live on mission." This means equipping students to live as authentic followers of Jesus Christ and impact the world by making Christ known — in their neighborhoods, school, community, and beyond.

Come grow with us! Invite friends to any of our programs or events.

    Students, this summer we're heading to Camp Bob Cooper, located on the shores of Lake Marion in Summertown, SC. We've got a great week planned for you with dynamic Bible study and tons of activities and recreation at this scenic retreat.

    Our theme for camp week is Just Believe. To replace doubt with faith is essential to walking with God. We'll focus on learning to trust God to overcome doubt, fear, and anxiety. It's an important topic for all students to consider!

    You'll have time alone each morning to spend with God using a devotional journal, then meet with your small group leader for Huddle Time. This will include scripture memorization and the opportunity for questions and reflection. Then we'll enjoy powerful worship together, followed by breakout sessions led by Calvary pastors.

    Afternoons will be free for swimming, canoeing, basketball, volleyball, Frisbee, the blob, waterslide, climbing wall, high ropes course, paintball, and much more! After dinner, we'll conclude each day with worship and engaging Bible teaching. 


    Cost: $250 with $75 non-refundable deposit — all payment balances are due before July 19.

    Roundtrip transportation, lodging, and most meals are included; Monday lunch–Friday breakfast provided. Bring extra money for snacks and drinks during the week ($30–$50), plus money for T-shirts, hoodies, and stickers.
