Here is a summary of the three components that are included:
Bible studies will encourage campers to understand what the Bible says. They will discover some of the most adventurous stories in the Bible, when God’s people and Christ’s followers were living their lives on the edge. Each study can be completed in 45 minutes to an hour. Each study contains active, hands-on activities to teach a Bible story, memory verse, and life application, as well as a prayer time.
Mission Studies will explore how missionaries have dedicated their lives to a “Life on the Edge” as they go and share their faith in mountainous and adventurous locations around the world. Each missionary tells a story about relying on the Lord for strength to do everything they must do to share their faith with the people they serve. Each study can be completed in 45 minutes to an hour. Activities communicate stories from the missions field, create cultural awareness, and challenge campers to live a missional lifestyle.
The Devotion Guide helps campers review and build upon what they learned in the Bible and Mission Studies. Campers will work individually or as a small group to answer personal questions that will help them think about Scripture in a personal way. They will examine the daily memory verse more in-depth, as well as pray and listen to the Lord. They will also learn an additional story from each featured missionary.
