Hi families! My name is Braden “Hip Bone” Shaffer and I am the Site Coordinator of the Camp in the City team at your church this week. My staff and I are so excited and humbled you have chosen to send your camper to camp with us this week. We know God is going to do amazing things, and we are excited to share the love of Jesus with your camper.

Our Bible study this summer is called “Heroes.” Our hope and prayer is that your camper would learn through God’s word that Jesus is the ultimate hero. In Jesus’ life, death, and heroic resurrection, he has given each of us the opportunity to be in relationship and community with him.


My wife Randi and I, along with our incredible staff are grateful for the opportunity to serve this summer and be a part of life transformation in your camper. My hope is that your camper will see what a strong man or woman of God looks like through the lives of the counselors leading them. I am praying that your camper will have the best week of their entire year as they participate in amazing activities, see hilarious skits, interact with phenomenal staff, and ultimately learn about our Savior, Jesus Christ.

We are looking forward to an amazing summer, living by faith and making Jesus’ name great!
