This camp provides an environment for teens to make new friends and explore their faith together with curriculum led by teachers from First Fruits of Zion. In addition to ther daily curriculum, Camp Tzadi will have a heavy emphasis on community-building, life-long friendship, and fun as campers explore God's word together.
