This page contains many photos of the Camp Shoshanah Messianic Bible Study Camp taken during 2014, that means the page may take time to load. While the main purpose of Camp is the study of the Scriptures from a Jewish frame of reference, we always manage to have a lot of Kosher fun, and these photos mainly show the fun!
