Confirmation Camp

Confirmation Camps are perfect for churches of any size. If your church has a long-term confirmation program, Confirmation Camp can serve as your confirmation retreat. If your church has a smaller confirmation class, Confirmation Camp can serve as the bulk of the confirmation experience, with follow-up lessons designed to be done at the local church after the retreat.

Topics to be covered at Confirmation Camp:

  • What is confirmation?
  • The Trinity
  • John Wesley
  • Sacraments
  • Vows
