Summer Camps at Epworth By The Sea
For nearly 70 years, summer camps for children and youth have been a ministry of the South Georgia Conference of the United Methodist Church at Epworth By The Sea. This coastal camp is located on the banks of the Frederica River on St. Simons Island, Georgia and has 100 acres of beautiful property on which to spend a week away.
At Camp Connect, our staff strives to create a meaningful camp experience by engaging campers in a week of fun, forming new friendships, and encountering Christ in and around us.
Someone once said that kids can learn more about their relationship with Jesus in a week of camp than they might in a year of Sunday School. Because of that, we take our time with our campers very seriously. Days are filled with outdoor activities like the ropes course, boat rides, dock fishing, games, art, beach trips and pool time. Nightly camp-wide competitions bring everyone together and each evening closes with a worship service. Woven throughout each of these activities is a greater purpose—sharing Christ's love with every camper we encounter.
With a “Blueprints” theme this summer, a week at Camp Connect will teach campers what God’s design for their life looks like. Diving into Scripture and sharing life stories will show them they are created in God’s image and created for a purpose.
Each week of summer camp costs $315. Here are the dates for this year’s camps:
