Children’s Programs

We want every child and teen who comes to Maranatha to experience the love and goodness of our God and to hear the Gospel boldly proclaimed. Each day during your vacation stay, kids from nursery up through teens have dedicated programming built around strong Biblical theology to present the Gospel in compelling and age-appropriate ways. Of course, we do this with amazing recreation, team building, mentorship and FUN!

Through the years we have seen hundreds of kids come to a saving knowledge and faith in Jesus Christ during our programming and sports camps. Many of those kids go on to become mentors and facilitators of the program during their college years. We have a premium on protection, security, and safety in all facets of our programs.
