Jesus Saves! Soccer Camp

Registration for our 2019 Jesus Saves! Soccer Camp is now CLOSED!

We’re excited about all the excitement for our 2019 Jesus Saves! Soccer Camp! There’s been so much interest in our camp, that our camp is now FULL. We have now closed registration, with 177 kids registered. We’re sorry that we’re not able to accept any more kids into our camp, but we’re looking forward to a great week with all those who have registered!

Jesus Saves! Soccer Camp is a free, four-day soccer camp open to all children ages 5-12. It is held during the last week of July each summer, from 9 a.m. – 12 p.m. from Monday through Thursday at Gault Park (1901 N. Sunrise Drive) in Saint Peter. Our 2019 camp will be held from July 22-25, 2019.

At our camp, participants are divided into teams based on their age level. Each team is coached throughout the week by one head coach and a number of assistant coaches. Each day includes warm-up exercises, soccer drills, a skill for the day, and numerous games and scrimmages. Also included are snacks, water breaks, and a daily devotion from God’s Word from one of the pastors at Saint Peter Lutheran Church.

Each participant is responsible to bring their own soccer shoes and sunscreen. Shin guards are mandatory and must be worn at all times. Due to the risk of injury, players without shin guards will not be able to participate. Parents should also be aware that our coaches and volunteers will not apply sunscreen to individual players. We will provide a camp jersey and daily snacks and drinks.

Due to the overwhelming interest in our camp, early registration is absolutely necessary. We would love to be able to have everybody come, but space and personnel limit the number of kids we are able to accept into our camp each summer. In 2018, we closed registration to our camp on May 14th after 175 kids had registered. Please contact our camp director – Pastor Jack Kelly – with any questions at jkelly@saintpeterlutheran.org.

We are pleased to offer our camp free of charge for the ninth consecutive year. Our camp is supported by the generous donations of members of Saint Peter Lutheran Church, along with donations from some of our campers. If you would like to give a free-will donation to help defray the costs of our camp, a donation box will be available at the registration table the week of the camp. If you have gently used shin guards and cleats, these can also be donated during the week of camp.  Your donations are greatly appreciated and will allow us to continue to offer our camp free to everyone in our community.
