KAIO is the Biblical Greek word meaning “to ignite or light a fire.” To help ignite or light a fire for Jesus in the life of kids is the mission of Camp Kaio! We want to light (kaio) the lamp and put it on a stand, not under a bowl. So that our “light will shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.” (Matthew 5:14-16)
 
In order to light that fire in our campers, we will have interactive morning assemblies featuring enthusiastic singing and Bible stories that talk about how we are wonderfully and fearfully made. Our trained teen camp counselors will be leading and mentoring campers in our daily small groups with other campers his/her age. Following lunch, we will have afternoon adventures of fun and fellowship. Camp Kaio will begin on Sunday night June 24 with orientation, dinner, and our opening ceremony. It will conclude Thursday night with a family pizza dinner and our closing ceremony.
