God's Word Is Alive!


  Details of Our Group going to CreationFest 2014

        Our Group is called The Bereans. We are various Christians from a several states, including Maryland, USA.  Our mission is to encourage, edify, and enjoy each other in our relationship with the living God.  We choose to have fun with each other, appreciate each other's gifts, and rejoice in our Creator!  

        While at CreationFest, each person's time is their own. They can come and go as they please, seeing shows, taking hikes, enjoying fellowship, praying, etc. We enjoy eating meals together, but it is not a requirement.

How To Participate with our group  >> Inquire, sign up, and prepay!! See Information form.

Dress Code        -   Leaders, Chaperones and Parents: We need your help in enforcing this policy -- our staff cannot do it alone! MODESTY is the key word. While the style and fashion these days seems to be "less is best," we do not want to be guilty of causing another person to stumble. Girls: Bathing suits are NOT permitted, except in the showers. Clothes must be put on over your bathing suit for the walk back to your campsite from the showers. Tank tops are fine but bellies must be covered (even though the fashion now is to show it off). Shorts and/or skirts need to be long enough and shirts big enough. Guys are not exempt from the dress code: SHIRTS (and shoes) MUST be worn by all at all times.
