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

Calvary Summer Camp for incoming 7th-12th grade students. We are heading to Hume SoCal from July 29-August 3 for an adventure of seeking Jesus together. Filled with outdoor summer activities, incredible worship, and rooted in biblical teaching, we strive for our students to not only grow in their relationship with God, but also in their friendship with one another. We always say, “if you only join Calvary MSM or HSM for one event, make sure it is summer camp!” Come along with us for an experience you’ll never forget!
