“I am the light of the world. If you follow me, you won’t have to walk in darkness, because you will have the light that leads to life.”
John 8:12

Join us this winter for another amazing Kid's Winter Camp!

Get ready to GLOW this winter at Sugar Pine Christian Camps! We are excited to learn how we can be the LIGHT of the world (John 8:12 NIV) and not walk in darkness but be the LIGHT that leads to life.

Join in on the electrifying games, radiant worship and chapel times, and stellar opportunities for you to hang out and build relationships together. We hope to see you glowing here soon!
