What are "After Parties?"
Thrive Camp "After Parties" are large group gatherings following our evening worship session where students are encouraged to interact, laugh, and enjoy time together. These gatherings are short, high energy, last-part-of-the-night celebrations on the lighted basketball courts... and they are THEMED!
Campers over the last two years have had a blast searching their closets and their local thrift stores for outfits and accessories for these parties to make some memories!
Monday Night-Wednesday Night:
Thursday Night: Worship on the Beach
Our last After Party will be a special one. On our last night, we'll ditch the outfits, lights, and DJ sounds for a night of acoustic worship led by our camp band right on the beach. Tiki torches and loud voices. This will be a night to remember.
What will your student get at camp this year?
