Summer Camp is a Christian camp, which means it is run with a strong Christian ethos and includes some Bible teaching and, if campers choose it, some prayer.
Hoylake and Bromborough Evangelical Churches both agree to the statement of beliefs described by the FIEC (Fellowship of Independent Evangelical Churches).
These are mainstream protestant Christian beliefs derived wholly from the Bible.
We teach it because we believe it to be true, but we never try to coerce anyone into believing it too. Rather, we want to present the Good News of the Bible and enable campers to make up their own minds.
Summer Camp is often a very helpful place for children and young people to think through some of the big issues of life and ask the big questions without any awkwardness or embarrassment.
In our teaching, we always make sure to take account for differing ages, learning ability, and even learning types where we can. It is always interesting and often a lot of fun.
Each evening, we hold an optional prayer meeting for those campers who want to join in. It’s led by some of the younger leaders (and occasionally some of the older campers).
Again, no-one has to join in and many choose to play pool, table-tennis, or other games at that time.
