Summer Camp is a weeklong setting that helps our students unplug to draw closer to God and one another. It is a change of place, and a change of pace that can lead to a change of heart. We believe all dedicated moments and memories happen at camp can change the direction of their lives.
Students will build lasting memories and friendships with peers and leaders from all the fun activities, meals and convos from their experience. Students will also be equipped with teaching and tools to grow in their faith and be challenged to live differently from the world around them.
July 8th – 12th, 2024. Providence students will head to Camp Oak Hill in Oxford, NC. Learn more details about Camp Oak Hill here.

The Truth About Lies. Our culture is quick to feed us ideas and narratives that can twist or distort what is really true. It has become easy to believe in lies. Our goal at summer camp is to help our students to become deep and discerning thinkers that hold the authority of scripture above all ideas of our world. In the gospels, we see Jesus expose lies through His interactions and teachings. These encounters and teachings are relevant now to help us discover real truth.
