Children & Youth
Baby-sitters and kindergarten activities with a Christian emphasis are provided for pre-school children during the scheduled adult activities.
Children entering first through sixth grade will have at their level many of the same unique features of the CFO program as the adults. They will be led by dedicated leaders who love children and who love the Lord! This age group will be housed with their parents, and parents are responsible for children when the children are not in scheduled activities.
Tracy and Kristen Ferrier - Children's Leaders
Tracy and Kristen Ferrier are super excited to be returning to AL CFO as the Children's program leaders once again this year. For over ten years, Tracy and Kristen have been serving alongside one another in various children's and adult's ministries at their home church (Christ the King Lutheran) and in their community (Pelham, AL). Tracy and Kristen will be joined by their three boys Jacob (17), Jesse (12) and James (5), but they promise to leave their three pets (Piggy, Chubbs and Harley) at home. "Can't wait!" "...And I will bless you, and make your name great; and so you shall be a blessing." Gen 12:2 (NASB)
We are excited about our youth program! Our youth participate with the adults in praise and worship, rhythms, creatives, meals and recreation, but enjoy some of their own talks and teaching time, prayer groups, and fun activities. Youth will be housed with their parents. Each youth must have a parent or adult sponsor in attendance at camp.
NOTE: If not coming with parent, all children/youth must have an adult sponsor and have medical release forms submitted.
