Music

Music is an imporant part of our program at Tree of Life. We have a nightly singalong and devotion that includes about an hour of singing. We start out with silly, fun camp songs, then move into energetic Christian contemporary songs and familiar Sunday School songs, then work our way to more serious, worshipful songs to get ready for devotion. After the devotion by one of our Bible instructors or other staff, we sing a few quiet songs before heading off to bed.

Theme song

In 2009, Tree of Life song leader Tim Mann wrote a new song to go with our camp Bible study theme for the year, Fireproof. If you liked Fireproof and want to hear it again or sing it at home, click below for a recording or the words and music.
