Son Days Camp Teaches Children, Youth about Making Peace

Capital District’s 2nd annual Son Days Camp for children entering 3-6th grade brought children and volunteers from eight Austin-area churches and still has room for more next year!

Son Days Camp meets the last full week of June at Crossroads Retreat Center in Caldwell, Texas. Crossroads is set apart in the serene (sandy!) woods of east Texas and has a great outdoor chapel, indoor chapel, several bunk filled cabins, dining hall and activity center.

The amenities also include a ropes course, sport field and volleyball court. Children spend their days in rotations learning and participating in global and local ministries, arts and crafts, making delicious desserts and bible study.

Our theme this year was, “Kids Can Make Peace”. Children heard from many voices about alternate ways of communication in difficult situations, as well as how to make inner peace with Jesus so we can change the world!
