Summer Camps

Rivers of Living water...

Many have asked where the name “Camp Elim” comes from. The first mention of “Elim” in Scripture is found in Exodus 15:27. “Then they came to Elim, where there were twelve springs of water and seventy palm trees, and they encamped there by the water.” 

The children of Israel had recently left the slavery of Egypt and had started out through the wilderness towards the Promised Land, through the Red Sea and straight back into the wilderness. After three days with no water, they came to a place called “Marah,” where they found bitter water, not suitable for drinking. God miraculously made that water sweet. Their next stop was Elim where they found the palm trees and refreshing springs of water.

How fitting, then, that our camp site is named “Elim!” As we wander through the wilderness we often seek to meet our needs in unsatisfying ways. God is able to take our bitter circumstances and use them for sweet purposes in our lives. Then He often provides an oasis where we can stop and focus on Him.
This summer we look forward to introducing boys and girls to the source of living water.” By turning to Him, not only will their thirst be quenched, but His living water will flow through them to a world that is hungering and thirsting for true satisfaction.

We invite you to come to Camp Elim and find physical and spiritual refreshment at this “oasis.” Since 1960, we have been pointing boys and girls to the Wellspring of Life through our licensed childcare programs. Under the guidance of our highly-trained and well-supervised staff, your child will come away refreshed, overflowing with the “living water” that only Jesus provides.

On the last day of the feast, the great day, Jesus stood up and cried out, “If anyone thirsts, let him come to me and drink. Whoever believes in me, as the Scripture has said, ‘Out of his heart will flow rivers of living water.’” 
John 7:37-38
