Adventure Camp 2019 Christian Living Class Notes

The theme for Adventure Camp this year was Mighty Men and Women. Unfortunately we’re not able to provide recordings of the Christian Living classes due to the remoteness of the camp from civilization (although that’s the whole point!), but below are the notes that the speakers used to present their classes. We hope you enjoy them!
