STRONGHOLD 2022 (June 5-10)

In 1985, the relationship with Camp Stronghold was establishedand BASIC has continued to go ever since. Because of COVID wehave not been able to host camp the past 2 years. But this year isa "GO" and BASIC is excited and hope you are too! Each evening we will hear a message from our guest speaker relevant to every juniorhigh student. Our days will be spent in small group Bible studies, large group singing, great large group day games and night games, hilarious skits presented by the BASIC leaders, swimming, and many other unbelievable activities.
