Soquel Camp Meeting
Connecting children with their Savior.
It is our prayerful mission that every child will come to know Christ as their personal Savior. We long for them to experience His loving and merciful heart so they can be transformed into His likeness.
This goal doesn't change at camp meeting. Our leaders spend the prior year prayerfully planning programs, and asking our Father which stories and activities will best reach each child. The staff strive to build personal relationships with the children, and pray that through their humanness, Christ will be revealed. We ask that you join us in this mission by praying for the children's meetings.
Age Specific Programming
Each division leader prepares a program designed specifically for your child. This makes the program more impactful for the child. It also makes it easier for staff to relate to the hundreds of children that come to each division. Please respect the process and truthfully give your child's age.

God's Garden & Family Roots
Center Leader: Leah Page
"God's Garden & Family Roots" is a unique program designed to cultivate faith and nurture relationships. Children learn about Jesus' grace through engaging activities and songs in our hands-on environment. Parents play an integral role, staying and interacting with their children throughout, reinforcing the family bond while fostering spiritual growth. For security, adults must show matching numbers when exiting with their child. Despite budgetary limitations, we strive for inclusivity, allowing a select number of Beginners to join our Kindergarten division for morning meetings. Join us as we sow seeds of faith and foster strong family roots.
Daily 9:30 - 10:30 AM, Sabbath 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM
Due to budget constraints, a Beginners Center will be located in the Kindergarten division. Limited space.

Look What's BUZZing in God's Garden
Director: Pastor Barbra Tabura
"Look What's BUZZing in God's Garden" is a captivating and faith-filled kindergarten program where children embark on an enriching journey of growth and discovery. Every child, regardless of their size, is beautifully created by God with a purpose and destined for extraordinary plans. Each session opens with spirited songs and captivating Bible stories, emphasizing their inherent worth. The children then journey through varied centers, exploring biblical truths, creating faith-inspired crafts, deepening their relationship with God through prayer, and celebrating His creation through exercise. This vibrant exploration culminates in a shared expression of love for God through heartfelt songs.
For the first time, we're introducing a modest childcare service during our evening meetings, specifically for our kindergarteners. While we've traditionally not had evening sessions for this age group, the shift in our schedule has led us to provide this additional support. Please note that this is not a continuation of the "I'm A Treasure" program but a safe, caring environment for your little ones while older siblings attend their meetings. We hope this eases the transition and look forward to serving your family's needs.

Juniors Community Service
We're passionate about giving our Juniors a chance to serve their community while learning about the environment. Usually, we organize a special community service outing that encapsulates this spirit of service and learning. Parents can typically access permission slips online as part of the registration process, complete with detailed information about departure and return times and locations.
However, given our current budget considerations, we're holding off on confirming this activity for now. We truly appreciate your understanding and patience. If things change, rest assured that we'll promptly update our website with a link to the permission slip. We hope to continue creating these valuable experiences for our Juniors. PLEASE PRAY THAT WE WILL BE ABLE TO BRING THIS BACK NEXT YEAR.
