We are so excited for all God has done at Summer Camp again at Crossings Camp in Bagdad, Kentucky! Camp was from June 28-July 2 this year and the students all had a blast! Check out our recap video:
Cedarmore rests on 600 acres of rolling hills and beautiful woodlands. Get ready to be surrounded by cedar-filled forests, serenaded by the sounds of crackling campfires, and mesmerized by star-filled skies. Cedarmore boasts a wide range of high-energy and premium activities — from zip lines and bazooka ball, to escape rooms and fishing, and so much more.
We are all looking for something to follow, something to put our identity in. The world offers us many options: wealth, popularity, careers. The list goes on and on, but there is actually only one solution. Only one thing that can satisfy us in our search for identity. Jesus. We will spend the week looking at exactly why this is the case.
Jesus is good and just. He cares for us in a way the world never could. In a world that seeks to elevate itself with any means necessary, Jesus humbled himself. Jesus lowered himself for our sake, while we were yet sinners. The goodness of Jesus overflows onto us, if only we come to him.
What a mess it is to find the truth in the world. “What is your truth?” “Follow whatever your truth is.” “My truth is different from your truth.” On and on, these twisted viewpoints make it feel impossible for us to understand what is true anymore. Jesus is the truth, the clear answer that the world so desperately is seeking in all the wrong places.
The world values superficial beauty, and physical beauty but what can this beauty do? It is temporary and fading, and it helps no one. Jesus is beautiful, he is beautiful inside and out. It is this beauty that saves, the loving heart of Jesus. This beauty seeks out the lost and lays down his life for the world.

At Crossings, we pride ourselves on providing groups with a distraction-free environment. Therefore, cell service is very limited. We do provide Wi-Fi connectivity to adult chaperones only. All this information will be provided upon arrival.
There will not be a camp nurse. We provide basic First Aid supplies and a First Aid Coordinator. More serious injuries can visit the closest hospital for medical help.
If you have a member of your group with food allergies, please make sure this is noted on their 2023 Crossings Medical Release Form. Our staff will do everything we can to accommodate them and keep our kitchen staff aware of the student’s needs. Please advise your student to find a member of the kitchen staff to discuss their options during mealtimes.
We will be taking three coach buses. The transortation cost is included in the camp cost.
We plan to be pulling away by 7am on the 28th and returning by 4pm on the 2nd. Leaders will be in touch with our progress on the return trip.
You certainly can. Crossings has a store to purchase gear and there are opportunities to purchase snacks. They do accept cash or you can also work with them directly to load money into an account for your student. Crossings is experiementing with this no-cash option this summer. When you register, you should get an email from them about this. They also collect an offering each year and the student has an option of giving money to their annual cause.
