Created to Be Me

C2BM2009-tubeCreated to Be Me®/ Eighters Camp: In summer 2009, we offered the first Created to Be Me Camp® to be held in the Mid-Atlantic region. Created to be Me® (a.k.a.Eighters Camp) is a week-long biblical-based camp for eighth graders going into ninth, that focuses on healthy living, dating, relationships and more, as the teens face the important transition into high school. We are happy to announce that the 2014 dates for  Created to Be Me Camp® will be Sunday, July 27 through Saturday, August 2.

We are very passionate about this program because many of our teenagers today find it difficult to cope with the changes that are occurring within them, and the world around them.  Teaching and discussing this topic in a loving and fun camp environment, coupled with the usual camp activities like music, art, campfires, games and swimming, is a great opportunity — one we think every 9th grader should experience!

Created to Be Me is…

  • A faith-based, co-educational camp for students who will be entering the 9th grade in the fall of the current camp year.
  • A program that focuses on healthy living, dating, relationships, and more.
  • Held at Camp Mary Mac in Sharpsburg, Maryland.
  • An all-inclusive overnight from Sunday through Saturday (6 nights).
  • An experience that includes swimming, volleyball, music, art, campfires and other great camping activities.

$185 covers the cost for the entire week – reduced rates and scholarships are available.

Note: All camp staff have background checks.
