where faith takes flight
Camp Araminta is one very active week with ongoing, exciting programs and activities that keep our kids busy from the crack of dawn until the evening. Camp is open to all rising 4th-12th grade students. We are building Christian Community through fellowship, living the Christian ideal from day to day, and learning to hold each other accountable. We also encourage discipleship by teaching youth how to filter the culture around us and discern what we listen to, say, and do (in music, media, and games). We are a ministry dedicated to supporting our youth as well as our fellow Anglicans.
Isaiah 40:31 reminds us that “those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.” Like birds learning to fly, our faith begins with a leap; we take that step and can feel God’s comfort surround us like the very air we breathe. The name Araminta was chosen because it means lofty in Hebrew.
As Christians, not only do we keep our minds focused on things above (Col 3:2), but we strive to pass on the faith to others in a way that they, too, will take that leap and learn to fly into God’s comfort. Araminta from its English roots means prayer or protection, and our prayer is that Camp Araminta is a place “where faith takes flight” for everyone who comes here.
