The idea behind Confirmation Connection Retreat is simple. We want to give small to medium size churches a resource to help with confirming their students. By connecting with other small churches seeking to confirm their students we can create an environment where students are learning together along side their peers.

Our retreat works well as a confirmation kick-off event, mid way point, or closing retreat based on when your church begins and ends confirmation. It can also act as a confirmation program for churches that don't currently have something to offer their students. Each church will receive more detailed confirmation lessons to use at their discretion.

Our Weekend Schedule includes worship, activities and 6 lessons that are designed to give students a basic overview of information taught in traditional confirmation programs. Students are divided into family groups based on their age and grade in order to help foster age appropriate discussion within those family groups.

Check-in begins at 6:30 p.m. on Friday and camp ends at 10:30 a.m. on Sunday morning.

Camp Bible 2016

Dates: September 23-24, 2017


Join us for a Bible Retreat for children who will be in Grades 3-5 in the 2017-2018 school year.

You are going to be part of this very special weekend where our focus will be Reunion: Family and Friends, the People of God. At Camp Bible we recognize how important it is for us to use our Bibles, since God continues to talk to us through words and stories. Not only will we share in the adventure of learning about our Bibles, we will share in camp life as well. Get ready to look at the stars, eat outside, play outdoor games, fish, shoot arrows, dance, do crafts and so much more.

Check-in

10:00-10:45 a.m. on Saturday, September 23, 2017 in Kiker

Closing Worship

10:00 a.m. on Sunday, September 24, 2017, at the cross

Camp will be finished at 11:00 a.m. on Sunday, September 24, 2017. Parents and families are invited to join us for the closing worship that begins at 10:00 a.m. at the cross. Campers will all work on an element of worship during their rotations on Saturday in order to lead Sunday’s service. We hope you will join us for Sunday morning worship at Bridgeport Camp!
