Family Camp 2

Family Camp is where parents and kids spend time together renewing their relationship with Jesus Christ. It’s where you lay the spiritual foundation you want to pass on to the next generation and the next.

Theme: Family Matters

Our goal for Maranatha family ministry is to refresh, equip, and mobilize the family.
