Westview Wired 2020

Greetings campers and parents. Our number one priority at Westview is the health and safety of our campers. In light of the COVID-19 crisis that is sweeping the globe, we have been hard at work creating a way to bring the fun of camp to the safety of your home. Introducing: Westview Wired, a virtual camp experience. Here are a few important things to know about Westview Wired:

  • Westview Wired is intended to be a full camp experience to replace our 2020 summer camp.

  • Westview Wired will provide many hours of activities, games, crafts, entertainment, teaching, Bible studies, worship, and fellowship over 6 weeks of summer!

  • Every Westview Wired camper will receive a box full of content from Westview, including clothing, candy, a youth-focused Bible, craft supplies, cooking supplies, and more!

  • Our theme this summer will be "Heroes." We will discuss various heroes throughout the bible as well as the Heroes in our community.
