Homeschool Family Camp

Here is a video of a previous year’s Family Camp so you can see how wonderful it is and bring your homeschooling family this year!

Fall Dates: October 13 – 16th 2016

Theme- “Hunger and Thirst for Righteousness”

Theme Verse- Matthew 5:6 “Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled.”

Homeschool Family Camps at Jenness Park allow families to have a high-energy, low-cost, camping experience with the whole family.

Speaker – Dan Mahaffie

Dan Mahaffie lives in Manteca, CA with his wife Carrie and their four children Taylor, Cameron, Kyle, and Maya. Dan has served for 8 years as the Associate Pastor at Sequoia Heights Baptist Church in Manteca, where he oversees the Missions, Outreach, and the Youth Ministry. He is a volunteer police chaplain for the Manteca Police Department, where he serves on the local high school campuses. For the last five years he has worked with the members of Sequoia Heights to plant a church among a formerly Unengaged Unreached People Group in Tanzania. Dan enjoys books, sports, games, and anything else he can do with his family.

Worship Leader – THEANTHROPOS

We are a group of brothers and sisters (ages 19 all the way down to 12!) who play high-energy upbeat Christian concerts, as well as deep and meaningful worship. Our recent 15-song debut album reached as high as #44 on the Christian charts, we have a substantial social media following, and an active touring itinerary. Ever since we were very young, our parents took us to Spirit West Coast every year to see our favorite bands. We’d come home inspired after each event and tried everything we could to get our band started, slowly making progress, but not reaching the point where we could actually put songs together.
Then, one day in 2010, we came home to find that our entire house had flooded. Our instruments were destroyed, and our hopes of getting our band off the ground were dashed. By God’s grace, just a few months later, we were able to replace our damaged equipment with brand new instruments, and He also gave us a brand new room in our house that now serves as our recording studio. We decided to use these gifts to worship Him through a praise and worship band that we called THEANTHROPOS Worship
