WHat is ecc summer camp?

ECC Summer Camp is a Christian summer camp program that is held at the Evangelical Christian Center in Ashford, Connecticut every summer in the first few weeks of July. The summer camp program is open to children ages six to sixteen years of age and children of all backgrounds. We are continuously amazed and grateful for God’s work in the lives of the staff and children who are able to attend the camp every year. Campers come from neighboring states and from as far as Florida, Christian families and from homes where they have never heard the gospel. We as staff have the opportunity to show God’s love to the children in the way in which we carry ourselves, care for them and study the word of God with them throughout the weeks. All our counselors are Christians from churches in MA, RI and NY and are eager to serve and bring the gospel to every camper that attends.

 

A DAY AT ECC

Campers spend the week in a variety of activities with their individual cabin group as well as with the entire camp as a whole. Age groups are divided into guys and girls and into 3 separate groups so we are able to adjust the bible lessons, games and activities to better suite each child at their level of understanding. Every single day is centered on helping the children building a relationship with God, their counselor and other campers around them This is done through morning worship services, Christ-centered Bible lessons, music, arts and crafts lessons, evening services and cabin devotions. Of course there is time in the day for the children to enjoy the scenery, swim in the pool, boat on the lake and participate in camp wide sports activities. Even in the entertaining activities such as these, we strive to imitate Christ-likeness in our sportsmanship, respect and God honoring conversations. At ECC Summer Camp we desire to be a place free from the distractions of the world, including electronics and clothing that draws unnecessary attention to the individual. We value and enforce modesty with all the campers and staff alike.

 

WHO RUNS ECC SUMMER CAMP?

Our summer camp program is run entirely by volunteers! From our counselors, to our worship group, to our sports staff - everyone at ECC volunteers their time in order to make sure we can run a successful camp. However, there is a core committee that meets throughout the year to plan and develop the upcoming summer camp program. Some members of the core committee are:

DIRECTOR: Dennis Vertiyev

SECRETARY: Danielle Vertiyev

PROGRAM DEVELOPER: Galina Radchenko

MUSIC DIRECTOR: Marta Kryschuk
