St. John Evangelical Lutheran Church

A Soccer Bible Camp will be hosted this summer at the soccer fields in Jacksonport by St. John Lutheran Church of Valmy and Zion Lutheran Church of West Jacksonport. Click here get a glimpse of what 2014 was like.

Children ages 5-13 will receive quality soccer instruction and more importantly instruction in God’s pure Word. We will hold our camp from 9am-Noon, July 9-13. Registration is all online. Click on the link in the left hand column of the page. The earlier you register the better! The soft deadline for registration will be Sunday, June 14 at midnight. Any registrations received after that time cannot guarantee a jersey for your camper. There will be no hard deadline, but early registration is much appreciated.

Each child will receive a water bottle and soccer jersey to keep. Every day they will bring home a sheet reviewing what they learned in soccer skills and what they learned from God’s Word.

Each day we will have plenty of water on hand for the kids to fill up their water bottles whenever they need to. Our snacks will be healthy snacks such as oranges and bananas. On Friday, after our closing devotion, we will celebrate our time together and what we learned with a family cookout. Everyone from your family is welcome to attend.

Throughout the week the children will work on a song which they will sing for everyone at the cookout.

Please do not bring your camper(s) earlier than 8:45. Any earlier and we cannot guarantee supervision. But please have your camper(s) at camp and ready for opening devotion at 9:00 sharp.

Your child will receive their jersey and water bottle on the first day of camp. Please make sure your child comes with their water bottle every following day. Shin guards are the only required equipment that each camper must provide for themselves. While the children are not required to wear cleats, they are recommended. If your child would like to bring their own soccer ball please make sure that their name is written on the ball.
