our kids to our church camp.
That’s great! We believe all kids should go to
church camp. Life changing decisions are made at
these camps. Dixieland Leadership Camp is
not meant to compete with church camp. It is a
special privilege and a discipleship ministry for
the “Cream of the Crop” kids. There’s something very
special about being that caliber, and spending a
whole week with those kind of kids! It’s intense
spiritual training, and intense fun!
