CrossTimbers Children’s Mission Adventure Camp exists to support local church efforts to reach lost children in their communities and to raise up a generation of kids with an authentic walk with God who actively serve others with missional living.
- Learn biblical principles for worship, missions, evangelism, and life.
- Create and strengthen relationships with God, family, and others.
- Experience nature in a fun and safe environment.
The camp is designed to offer four days of intentional spiritual investment in a child’s life.
- Day One: Camp Theme
- Day Two: Evangelism
- Day Three: Instruction from the Word
- Day Four: Challenge to Serve Daily
Throughout each session of camp, there is a high priority on scripture, worship, relationships with camp staff and church sponsors, and opportunities for kids and sponsors to sharpen their skills and prepare to consistently serve God after camp. CrossTimbers is a camp designed to reach and equip children.
“Finally brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable — if there is any moral excellence and if there is anything praiseworthy — dwell on these things.”
Philippians 4:8 CSB
At it’s birth Crosstimbers once was a Royal Ambassadors camp. As the camp evolved it placed a strong emphasis on missions education and this is something that continues to be one of the foundational elements of this camp.
Camp staffers will share about personal mission experiences they have experienced and the experiences of others. We work hard to educate campers on the evangelistic work that is going on in our state, country and world. Because a classroom experience isn’t exactly what kids are looking for at camp we work hard to incorporate cultural practices, games and activities, crafts, language, and food and drink tasting as a way to live, and break up the teaching time.
What is camp without some fun while you’re there? CrossTimbers provides a ropes course, target sports and water activities. Program staffers are trained, and even certified when needed, to provide a fun and safe environment at camp. Sponsors will not be required to work the activities but may be called on, by the staff, to assist with certain aspects of activities.
Campers and Sponsors attend chapel in the morning and evening. The staff will provide music, games and skits that focus around a central theme and the camp pastor will share a message. The camp pastor is most often a minister at one of the churches each week.
