Summer Camp 2016 - Trek

We have spent most of the fall and winter planning and dreaming about how to make Asbury Hills even better.  Our staff even spent a week learning from the best in the camping industry at the American Camping Association's National Conference.  We are pumped about what Summer 2016 is going to bring.  Some of this does include the new menus we are planning for food service and the new water activities going into the *new* drenched lake.  But we are also really excited about our summer theme of Trek and really diving into what it means to be a follower of Christ.

What is the definition of trek?

  • a long arduous journey, especially one made on foot
  • go on a long arduous journey, typically on foot
We will be learning about following God through the Israelites' journey to the promised land. Campers will also be spending time talking about what it means to abide in Christ by learning about the vine and branches.  We will learn from Jesus himself about what it means to serve, and we will learn from the first disciples about what it means to trust.  It's going to be a great summer...don't miss it!

Camps on Wait Lists:
  • June 5-10 Senior High Adventure: Whitewater (boys)
  • June 26-July 1 Junior High Drenched (girls)
  • June 26 – July 1 Jr. High Adventure: Ultimate
  • July 10-22 Senior High Expedition (girls)

Asbury Hills Hits the Road

We've spent the fall planning and training, and now we want to share our message with you!  There is a lot to be excited about.  We have made staffing adjustments to best serve both our summer campers and retreat guests.  Asbury Hills is intentionally planning for Summer Camp 2016 - Trek to be the best summer yet.  Camps are filling quickly with registrations, so we are also anticipating this summer to be our biggest.  We are blessed to have the opportunity to serve retreat guests most weekends with new groups reserving space each week.  Annual events like our Hands and Feet Youth Service Weekend, Open House, Camps & Retreat Ministries Golf Tournament, and Fall Festival are all turning into can't-miss opportunities to connect and have fun.  We want to get the word out.  Will you help us?  Here's how you can:

1. Asbury Hills Will Come to You!
The best way for us to share our excitement about everything we have going on is in person.  Invite us to your church, your meetings, or to gather with your group of friends.  This is a great opportunity to get to know us, ask questions, give feedback, and learn something new.  We can offer everything from leading games with students and presentations with video to informal Q&A sessions.  We want to meet your group needs, so just let us know.

2. Request More Information
The next best thing to having us in person is sharing materials.  We have Asbury Hills posters, inserts for church bulletins, postcards, summer camp brochures, retreat brochures, and flyers.  We will be happy to mail whatever you need to you.  Don't see what you are looking for?  Just ask!  Chances are we can make it happen.

Contact Sarah Kelley to learn more about an Asbury Hills visit or to request information.  And finally you can...

3. Follow Us on Social Media
We have so much going on, we cannot fit it into our monthly newsletters.  We also don't want to fill up your inbox with all the areas of our ministry that you may or may not be interested in.  But we do try to share everything we are up to on social.  So follow, like, and subscribe to the links on the bottom.  Like something we post?  Share your enthusiasm for Asbury Hills, and share it on your pages.
