LifeWay Christian Camp Series Brings Over 3,000 to GWU Campus This Summer

Centrikid ‘All Access’

Centrikid is in full swing on the Gardner-Webb University Campus with a variety of activities. The LifeWay Christian Camp series welcomed its first campers on June 9 and expects more than 3,000 children and adults to attend by the last week of camp on July 26.

During each five-day session, children in grades three through five are offered opportunities for Bible study, worship and recreational experiences. Camps are organized and led by teams of young adults, including college and seminary students, who help serve as directors, pastors and worship leaders.

“The most famous activity that CentriKid is known for is a game called OMC,” offered Brianna Schock, camp director. “OMC stands for Organized Mass Chaos, and that is just what it is. Every player knows exactly what task he is doing, but each player in the game is doing something different. This game is played on Day 4 of camp, and can't be complete without tons of shaving cream.”

The theme for the summer is "All Access" as campers focus on John 17:3, which says: “This is eternal life: that they may know You, the only true God, and the One You have sent—Jesus Christ.”

“God wants Himself to be known,” Schock related. “He has given us an ‘all access pass’ by revealing things about Himself throughout history as an expression of His love. God has revealed that He is the only true God. He’s not hidden, and He wants a relationship with every individual.”
