Skills Camp at Lamoka Baptist Camp is a unique and exciting option for campers of all ages! During this camp, FOUR different skill-based tracks run simultaneously alongside our regular Teen Week schedule. The tracks this year include: Fine Arts (music track), Art, Adventure, and Writing. We bring in professionals in their field to run and instruct in each of these programs, but more importantly, we use these camps as an opportunity to teach our campers how to better use their gifts and abilities for the glory of God!
