Camps

Lake Yale Baptist Conference Center is a great place to host a camp!

Each camp listed here has open registration for anyone to participate. Check out their site for more information (links will open in a new window).

What We Offer

At Camp WorldLight, we offer a wide range of experiences for the campers. Each week is filled with awesome feature nights where the campers have TONS of fun and sometimes get a little bit messy! We also have missionaries visit to share their mission’s experience with the campers throughout the week and we provide the campers with an opportunity of their own to learn what it is like to be a missionary through our Immersion Night. Most importantly, the campers learn about God’s love through bible studies, worship times, and through the example and love of the staff.

    Some other activities that your camper may get to experience include:

  • Water Activities
  • Swim Times at the Pool
  • The Ropes Course
  • Crafts
  • Bible Breakouts
  • Fun Skits
  • Lots of Games and Songs
  •          & much more!

Be where the action is. Witness hundreds of students from around the state as they come together to learn more about our Heavenly Father.  Celebrate the victories in the hearts of our Florida youth, cheer your team, and enjoy what summer camp is all about – bringing people together. When it comes to truly having a “super summer,” you’ll want to be there!

2020 CENTRIKID THEME: “THE DISCOVERY”

For summer 2020, the CentriKid Camps theme is “The Discovery” and the key verse we hope every camper and adult will memorize is 1 John 2:6:

The one who says he remains in him should walk just as he walked.

We need help. We need more than a how-to guide, we need an example. This summer at CentriKid Camps, campers will discover what it means to be imitators of Christ. Jesus is the ultimate example that we should follow as Christians and we will be taking a look at scriptures that help us know Jesus and walk as Jesus walked.

Here is a snapshot of where we’ll focus each day of camp:
Day 1: Walk as Jesus Walked
Day 2: Obey as Jesus Obeyed
Day 3: Care as Jesus Cared
Day 4: Forgive as Jesus Forgave
Day 5: Speak as Jesus Spoke
