daycamp Bring camp to your
own community!

Day Camp is a great way to bring the talents and enthusiasm of a camp staff to your congregation. The Agapé staff will bring a wealth of program ideas along with a relational ministry style to meet your kids' needs. This is a five-day program designed for youth entering grades 1-5. Day Camp happens in your community or at your church. This year we hope to serve over 25 congregations of the Synod through this powerful community-based program.

A fresh and dynamic way of presenting catechetical material.

campformation camp
During confirmation camp, faith learning is intensified, relationships are forged, and a community is built. Daily experiences at camp help confirmation curriculum come to life through the witness and role modeling of staff and one another.

Agapé V Kure Beach Ministries has built a reputation for quality Christian role models in its staff. Join us and find out more.

Below are the proposed dates for Campfirmation clusters in 2016, to be finalized by the end of December:

June 12-17 
June 19-24
July 10-15  

New clusters of congregations are forming. Class size is not an issue. Program week runs from Sunday late afternoon to Friday early afternoon. Contact Ava for more information.

Download the 2016 Campfirmation Information and Registration Packet here.

Download the 2016 Campfirmation forms packet here. This packet includes a group roster, leader worksheet, camper profiles, health history form, etc.

The fee for 2016 is $435.00 per camper for the week (for participants who have forms turned in to Camp Agapé at least one month before they arrive). Those who come without forms or return them to camp inside of one month before your program will pay an additional $25.00 per camper, or a total of $460.00 for the week. The regular camp week begins on Sunday afternoon and concludes Friday afternoon. Pastors, professional staff, and lay catechists are free at a ratio of one free adult for every seven campers. If fewer than seven campers attend, the fee for adults is $235.00.

For campfirmation programs in clusters for the summer of 2016, we request a deposit of $100.00 per camper with a congregation minimum of $300.00. i.e.: (2 campers X $100.00 = $200.00 you will still send a deposit of $300.00; 9 campers X $100.00 = $900.00, you will send a deposit of $900.00). This deposit must be paid by February 1st, 2015 to hold the reserved space. This deposit is transferable to another camper within the same program, but not refundable. After February 1st the deposit amount increases to $200.00 per camper.

If your congregation is booking exclusively for a week of camp, we require a deposit of $100.00 per camper or a $2,400 minimum. This deposit must also be paid by February 1st, 2016 to hold the reserved space. This deposit insures a minimum of 24 campers to reserve a week exclusively. This deposit is not transferable to another week or program.

If you have any questions, please email or call Ava at
