Bring the whole family for Family Gathering. Share and grow with your family and with new families of friends. We will hike, laugh, sing, swim, play, eat and relax together. Join us and you will discover new ideas for family activities and ways to build a stronger and happier family.
Families will lodge together and activities will include family time, adult time and children time. Make this a priority and a new tradition. You will be glad you came.
For all ages
Fun and spiritual renewal await if you are a single parent household of any size, or style (including, but not limited to, non-custodial parents, grandparents and military households) at the Single Parent Family Gathering. Parent and child/children are invited to come and be a part. Our goal is to help you face the challenges that life has to offer, and offer you some quality time at one of our marvelous camp sites.
Create wonderful memories as we swim, hike and fellowship together. And who knows, there might be a roasted marshmallow in there too!
The children receive all toiletry items, a teddy bear, backpack, Bible and a souvenir shirt. All bedding, towels and linens are furnished. Transportation is furnished from the children's homes by local church volunteers.
The camp is completely funded by donations, not apportionment dollars.
We attempt to staff the camp with one adult for every two children. If you are interested in volunteering for, know a child who is eligible for New Day Camp, or have questions, contact Lesa Rhoads at (405) 530-2014.
New Day I | Children ages 8-11
New Day Too | Youth ages 12-14
New Day Camp is for children who have at least one incarcerated parent. The camp begins at noon on Monday and ends following lunch on Friday. We have worship twice daily.
Children are divided into small groups for curriculum study and other activities. Each group has its own set of adult leaders. Curriculum is designed to address the special needs of this group of youngsters. We also have share groups where children can process together their hopes, dreams and difficulties that might impact them.
These children are the forgotten victims of crime and we help them experience a New Day.
Recreational activities include fishing, canoeing, swimming, basketball, hiking, shoreline hiking and board games. The older group participates in challenge course activities. The camp also offers art, crafts and musical activities.

Swimming, canoeing, challenge course, basketball, jewelry making, crafts, volleyball, softball, archery are only a few of the activities provided.
