Summer Day Camp - July 10-14, 2017 - Uptown Jackson
New McKendree Church is again partnering with Eagle Lake Camps to bring a summer day camp to Uptown Jackson. We hope to partner with churches in the area to bring 150 children to camp! Summer Day Camp Uptown Jackson will take place at New McKendree Church and First Baptist Church on High Street in Jackson. Children ages 6-12 will experience 5 days of incredible fun, age apropriate Bible study and relationship building. The camp runs from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm daily. Lunch is provided daily. The cost is $190 per camper, but with a $25 scholarship from the Missouri United Methodist Anual Conference and an $85 scholarship provided by each church, campers will only pay $80 at registration!
