  8. 8. Bible Studies based on the book of Jonah Only. This youth camp curriculum was designed to teach the basic truths of obedience in addition to evangelism in the context of a Biblical character. The advantage of going through a book and looking at one man's story is that we see not only the teaching but the example. It becomes much more real!

  9. 9. Creative Youth Ideas Camp Bible Study Series “Who Do You Say that I AM?” www.creativeyouthideas.com/resources/whodoyousay.html -> Tell me about “Who Do You Say that I AM?” Jesus asked the disciples, "Who do others say that I am?" It was easy to answer because it required no conviction, no commitment, and no risk. But then he follows that question with another, "Who do YOU say that I am?" www.CreativeYouthIdeas.com
  10. 10. Live the Fruitful, Abundant Life Jesus Promised. Great for youth camps or weekly Youth Bible Study. There are 7 Primary Bible study Sessions in the series. www.creativeyouthideas.com/resources/fruitofthespirit.html -> Tell me about “Fruit Of the Spirit” Creative Youth Ideas Youth Camp Bible Study Series “Fruit Of the Spirit” www.CreativeYouthIdeas.com
