Cairn’s Camp in Your Own Backyard (CYOB) is a week-long vacation Bible school program that offers the opportunity to bring camp-style fun to churches and communities around our Synod.
This program is designed for children ages 5 to 13, but also provides an opportunity for older youth to help as young adult volunteers. There is no limit to the number of children who can participate, so long as there is an appropriate ratio of adult volunteers provided by the church to assist with the programming.
The cost for this weeklong camp program is $2100, which covers the cost of two Cairn staff members, the CYOB curriculum, and supplies for up to 29 campers. Should you have 30 or more campers register for CYOB, an additional cost of $350 will be applied and will cover an additional Cairn staff member and program supplies for up to 39 campers. The curriculum is centered around a new theme every year, and provides activities such as stories and lessons from the Bible, singing, games, music and drama, creations quest, arts and crafts, team-building initiatives, and “campfire” every day.
If you would like to offer a CYOB program at your church this summer, or for more information, please contact our camp office at 705-767-3300, or email firstname.lastname@example.org
