Dear Parents,

We consider it a great privilege to partner with you and your church in teaching your child to know and share the gospel. Super Summer is a teaching ministry hidden in a summer camp. Our hope is that your child will return home from our camp equipped to better share the gospel in their sphere of influence. We encourage you to be the primary educator in your child’s education of the gospel. To that end, we welcome you to join us by praying and/or by volunteering as we equip your child to know and share the gospel. Super Summer is a unique experience for students that can only be fully understood in person. We would love to have you serve as a volunteer with us. Come see what makes Super Summer super.
