Confirmation Camp: Ages 12-16 ($250)

Confirmation in one week!  This week will be filled with daily opportunities to grow in knowledge and faith as together we explore the basics of discipleship and membership in the Presbyterian (USA) church.  Each day will feature a different focus (Bible, Mission, Worship, Faith Sharing, Stewardship).  The primary leadership for the week will come from Rev. Colin Pritchard and Matt Brooks from the First Presbyterian Church in Victor, but many days will also feature guest ministry leaders from around Upstate NY.  Our free time and meals will be shared with the Camp Whitman community.  At the end of the week, each young person will have the opportunity to discuss with their home church leadership if they would like to be confirmed as a full member of their PCUSA church.
