Summer AR Testing Information
Camp Orlando is First Orlando Student Ministry’s annual summer camp. This year, junior high and high school will be together for Camp Orlando, though most activities will take place separately. Camp Orlando 2015 will feature Stuart Hall (camp speaker), Unhindered (camp worship band) and A.C. Sanford (camp emcee). The theme for Camp Orlando 2015 is UNITED: though each of us is uniquely different, we are UNITED in grace and mission. This will be a week that students will not want to miss!
