Evergreen Presbyterian is hosting Camp Orbit for 20 kids ages 6 – 13 this summer from July
15-19! This affordable, one-week day camp will give them the opportunity to explore, wonder,
and seek a relationship with creation and the Creator. Most importantly, they will get the chance
to learn more about themselves and hopefully make new friends and precious memories.
The vision of Camp Orbit is to provide children and families with a safe nurturing space and
opportunity to explore, wonder, and seek a relationship with creation and the Creator. We are
striving to create the kind of experiences that will move kids to discover, hope, care, connect;
and feel seen. We are also building trust with kids so we can help kids trust God. Camp Orbit
focuses on cultivating deep relationships with the Creator and love in our children. We will follow
the curiosity of our children, encouraging them to explore themselves, their relationship with
God and the world around them with wonder and respect.
