MSM 6TH GRADE SUMMER CAMP

JULY 8-JULY 12, 2024 | CIY MIX

This year we are going to have a separate camp experience for just our incoming class of 6th grade students!  On July 8-12, we will be taking our students to a sleepaway camp called “CIY Mix” (CIY stands for Christ in Youth) that is held on Biola University’s campus.  We are excited for this opportunity for our younger students for two main reasons.  First, it is a shorter and closer camp than the camp we are going to with our incoming 7th-12th graders and second, it will be a great opportunity for our team to get to know these new students in a more personal way.  

Here is a quote from a student who attended CIY Mix last year, “MIX has given me more courage to talk about Jesus.  It has also encouraged the kingdom work I’m going to do this year within my church.  My favorite part of the week is spending time with friends and worshiping together.  MIX means the world to me”

The short answer is no! While this camp is unapologetically a bible-based, Christian experience, we welcome all students to join us to ask serious question about faith and consider who Jesus is. Each year dozens of students who do not attend church come with us and find the experience fun, informative, and helpful in their own understanding of faith!
