NEW VISION STUDENT CAMP

This summer will be like no other summer you have ever experienced. From July 6th through July 10th students will be going 3 hours away to the Smokey Mountains of Ocoee, Tennessee at Ocoee Ridge Camp. There will be spectacular views, rock climbing, zip-line gliding, wave pool, paintball, full court basketball, volleyball, nine square, gaga ball, and many more exciting things. Most importantly, it will be a time where we can encounter God away from all the distractions in our every day lives.

Our Camp Speakers will be our very own Brady Cooper and Nick Person, and New Vision Student Band will lead us in worship.

This camp is for Middle School and High School students (sign up as the grade you will have COMPLETED during the 2020-2021 school year). It is also planned during sports dead period so there shouldn't be an excuse not to experience summer camp this year. It will be an exciting week and a time to grow closer to God and to grow closer with your friends. Don't miss out on NV Camp 2021!
