Theme & Purpose

We grow in our relationship to the Father, because of the Son, through the Holy Spirit.

  • Confirmation Camp has been a tradition of La Casa de Cristo for 40+ years. It is not uncommon to hear people say the highlight of their Confirmation experience at LCDC was Confirmation Camp. Many would even say it was when their relationship with God made sense to them for the first time or that they made a personal decision to follow Christ with their whole heart. Wherever a kid is on their faith journey, Confirmation Camp surely plays a special role.
  • This camp is a requirement for our Confirmation Program and offers a curriculum for better understanding the Trinity and one’s relationship with God.
    • Our Confirmation Program is a two year program for 7th and 8th graders and kids become eligible for Confirmation Camp on the Summer between their 7th and 8th grade year. If kids miss their first chance to go, they must plan on attending Confirmation Camp the following year to finish Confirmation. We do not offer a makeup class for Confirmation Camp as it is impossible to recreate.
  • Camp Schedule:
    • Morning sessions on the Trinity in Sedona’s beautiful outdoors
    • Afternoon fun and games and swimming at the creek
    • Evening worship and messages to strengthen our relationship with God
    • 3 delicious camp meals and YOUR cookie snacks offered each day
  • Kids and friends that want to be part of our youth group but not necessarily enroll in Confirmation are welcome to attend. We hope that the teenager and their family would want to make LCDC their church home, see value in our Confirmation Program, and continue on in our youth group if they do not already have one. We have ways for kids to catch up on missed Confirmation classes if they decide to join mid-program.
