Teens have always been an important part of Hortense Camp! Between worship services, teens have their own devotional and activity schedule. From afterglow to group sports (and perhaps some chores), the youth have opportunity to bond with each other and interact with other age groups that are present for camp meeting. Youth activities are for ages 13-19.
Children have activities and Bible stories during the Morning Worship hour. We could call these events "Children's Church." They also have their own schedule of events throughout the encampment. Children's Church and the children's activities are for ages up to 12 years old.
The 115th annual camp meeting will be held from July 25th through August 4th, 2018.
