  • Middle School ICE camp

    Ice Camp at Miracle Camp is a fun, weekend-away for our middle school students!

    Accompanied by leaders from Brookside, students will enjoy tubing, broomball, dodgeball, and many other exciting activities. Through chapel sessions and small groups, the students will learn about the theme of the weekend, which is forgiveness. How does God forgive us and how can we truly forgive?

    Discover your gifts. You may already know what your spiritual gifts are. But, if you don’t, or just want to clarify what they are, we have both adult and youth spiritual gifts tests to help you find out.
