General Information

It is the hope and prayer of the First Friends Church Sports & Recreation Outreach that we provide excellent opportunities for fellowship and inter-personal relationships to occur and grow through our various sports and recreational opportunities.

In communicating a proper Christian ethic, we seek to improve the overall physical, emotional, mental and spiritual health of each participant. We seek to encourage each participant who does not know Christ to establish a personal relationship with Him. For those who already do know, we hope to help deepen their walk with Christ in fellowship with others.

This class is for students age 10-17.  Students will learn how to use Praise Flags during this camp.  They will be introduced to larger flag poles, but will not perform with them.  Students will be responsible for bringing their praise flags back and forth to class each day during camp and are required to practice between classes.  This class is ideal for smaller students, there is no height requirement.
