Overnight 456

Overnight 456 is a discipleship weekend for 4th, 5th & 6th graders and usually takes place in March or April of each year.  This is an exciting weekend of Worship, Bible Study, Recreation, Activities and LOTS of FUN!!


CentriKid is a five day, four night camp for 3rd – 6th graders to experience the time of their lives and learn more about the message of Jesus Christ! From the future sports star to the young scientist to the rising chef, every kid gets to participate in exciting activities of their choice. Church groups bring kids to camp where they’ll take part in Bible study, recreation, track times, and worship.  Camps are staffed by college and seminary students who can’t wait to hang out with your kids and love to share Christ through every aspect of camp!

The last two summers FBC Portland has attended camp at Campbellsville College in Campbellsville, KY.
