Stronghold Day Camp: Camp Stronghold Day Camp will be run by the BASIC Leaders and Randy Hausler.

After a delicious lunch we will then fill out afternoons with more exciting programs. Each participant will receive a one of kind “Camp Stronghold Day Camp 2021” T-shirt to remember this challenging /exciting week. Students will be have the opportunity throughout the week to really examine their faith and

what it means to have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.

FAITHS (Friends Acting In The Holy Spirit): FAITHS is a summer mission day camp for students entering 7th-12th grade. We will spend each morning doing service projects in the Iowa City area, and hosting/serving a lunch to grandparent-age members of our congregation on Friday. Our days will begin at 8:30 a.m., with devotions and directions. Our work will end at 12:00. Due to COVID-19 restraints, we will be asking participants  meet-up and drop off at our locations around Iowa City/Coralville. The locations and directions will be sent out one week prior to FAITHS Week!
