Camp Bratton-Green

Canton, MS 39046 

601-859-1556 

www.graycenter.org 

Ages: 5-16 

Camp Bratton-Green is a place for young people to learn and grow in the love of God. There is a reason we are one of the only camps with so many volunteer staff members; it’s because they were once campers themselves. Being too old to attend as a camper never stopped anyone from experiencing Bratton-Green, and giving back to the spiritual growth experience that is deeply-rooted in all who attend Camp Bratton-Green, camper and staff alike.Special Sessions are for campers with mental and/or physical disabilities and countless interactions between Christ and human take place there. When people who, under everyday circumstances, wouldn’t spend time together find themselves living in the close, loving quarters of camp, we are able to glimpse the living Christ at work in the world. Special Sessions have, for many people in the diocese, been a source of inspiration, learning, service, and love.

Twin Lakes Summer Camps have been voted as a yearly “Family Favorite” for the last 20 years! Twin Lakes is focused on providing an environment that is both safe and fun, while being intentionally grounded in Biblical teaching. For the past 47 years, Twin Lakes has shown the love of Christ to campers from a variety of backgrounds. During their session, each camper participates in each of our exciting activities - Horseback riding, Wild Wilderness Adventure, Games, Challenge Course, Riflery/Archery, Rock Climbing, Waterfront, Leather crafts and Kayaking. Biblical narratives serve as the theme each week, and come to life during assembly times as the whole camp experiences a Bible adventure. The loving, highly qualified staff are carefully selected and genuinely enjoy developing relationships with each child and seeking to help him/her make the most of their week at camp.
