This page contains photos of the Camp Shoshanah Messianic Bible Study Camp taken during 2016. The main purpose of Camp
 is the study of the Scriptures from a Jewish frame of reference to produce mature disciples of Messiah Yeshua / Jesus.
At the same time we always manage to have a lot of Kosher fun, and these photos often show the fun!
