FAQ's

KFN Day Camp seeks to provide children with an unforgettable multi-cultural, Christ-Centered camp experience. Through fun, stimulating activities, a positive environment, and dynamic prayer and worship, our trained and qualified CFNI students desire to foster relationships with each child that will impact them eternally.
KFN is a ministry of Christ For The Nations.

KFN is especially for children and preteens ages 5-12 and is actually three camps in one! Each camp is creatively designed for each age group. Children ages 5-6 will love the “ISLANDERS”. Boys and girls who have completed grades 1-3 will have an incredible time in the “NATIVES”. Preteens, in grades 4-7, will have a blast as a part of “THE TRIBE.”

Campers will have an opportunity to experience God through dynamic worship services with Bible exploration and ministry. We will have a blast with swimming, water games and slide, archery, extreme art, wilderness adventures, grill skills, culinary creations, theme days, exciting workshops for preteens, and much, much more!

Campers will learn about the Word of God in the power of the Holy Spirit and how to have a lifestyle of worship. Through Spirit-led worship, powerful Bible experiences, and anointed prayer times, campers will have an opportunity to experience the presence of God.

The amazing counselors are the best part of KFN. Our KFN team members are trained and equipped Christ For The Nations students. These dynamic students come from all over America and around the world to seek God and study His Word here at Christ For The Nations. Their enthusiasm, energy and zeal for God are contagious. They will model godly character and demonstrate God’s love for each camper.

KFN Day Camp will be offered in three sessions:
Session 1 is June 19 – 23 Session 2 is June 26 – 30
