IS IMPACT A BIBLE CAMP?
Impact Camps are presented in partnership by Halifax Christian Academy with local churches. The camps are open to all families, whether they profess to hold a Christian faith or not. While Impact is not a Bible Camp or VBS (Vacation Bible School), the daily camp activities will be conducted in alignment to what honours God and may include activities like morning Bible reading, prayer, and singing worship songs.
