Confirmation Camp at Gretna Glen has a wonderful history, and with great success, has been a standard for thousands of confirmands through the years. The weekend is focused on the five vows of affirmation (prayer, witness, gifts, service, & presence). Each vow comes to life as the confirmands participate in hands on activities, discussions, and reflections that help draw parallels between confirmation and a life of faith. Confirmands will also have the opportunity to participate is a spiritual gifts survey and speak with adults about how their gifts fit into the ministry of making disciples for the transformation of the world. This common program is built to supplement any confirmation curriculum no matter what stage of the confirmation process. We will spend the weekend focusing on our theme passage: 1 Corinthians 12:12
