The theme for 2016 at Camp Kadesh is "SHIFT". The idea behind the name comes from our desire to see God make a shift in our attitudes and the way we live our life. The bible verse that our theme is based on is Romans 12:2 "Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will" (NIV)
Camp Kadesh exists to challenge people to not accept the status quoand live a life that looks different and be the change that is needed in the world. The Message translates the same verse a little bit different: "Don’t become so well-adjusted to your culture that you fit into it without even thinking. Instead, fix your attention on God. You’ll be changed from the inside out. Readily recognize what he wants from you, and quickly respond to it. Unlike the culture around you, always dragging you down to its level of immaturity, God brings the best out of you, develops well-formed maturity in you." (MSG)
At Camp Kadesh we want to see people developing that "well-formed maturity" and becoming all that God has intended them to be.... to make the SHIFT.
