Church camp is absolutely the most important activity offered to Hillside youth. It has been said that you will do more for a young person’s faith in a week of church camp than in a year of Sunday School. The youth will attend camp at the Disciples Center at Tawakoni, which is located between Andover and Augusta. Camps are available for age-specific levels, duration of camp depends on the age group.
Kindergarten and first graders stay for one night only and work up to one full week as a teenager. Campers are able to get away from “the real world” and create a community with fellow Christians from all across Kansas.
MANY ADULTS FROM HILLSIDE ARE ALSO INVOLVED IN THE CAMPING PROGRAM, VOLUNTEERING AS COUNSELORS FOR CAMPS OF MANY DIFFERENT AGE LEVELS OVER THE COURSE OF THE SUMMER
