We give a special gift to campers who have been part of the Cho-Yeh family for at least 5 summers. The 5-year crosses and other gifts are presented during a celebration at Closing Cho-Gram at the end of each session. 5-year camper receive their cross along with 2 sets of beads: black and red representing sin and the redemptive blood of Jesus.
Campers 6-9 Years
Campers attending 6-9 years receive additional sets of beds to add to their necklaces:
- 6-years – White: representing we are a new creation in Christ
- 7-years – Blue: representing baptism
- 8-years – Green: representing continued spiritual growth
- 9-years – Yellow: representing heaven
Campers are encouraged to bring their cross with them to camp. If you’ve lost yours, replacement crosses can be purchased for a small fee in the Trading Post.
