What's Included

Hike, bike, and paddle all in one week. Enjoy free time in the evenings to explore the trails, soak in nature and celebrate at campfires. Take in a local history talk and enjoy spectacular meals prepared by our chefs. Christian community is the backbone of our summer camp program. Campers will worship, play, serve and study in small “family” groups while living in cabins (or tents if noted in the camp description) with other campers under adult supervision. Campers receive three kid-friendly nutritious meals daily and will cook their own food over a campfire at least once. Disconnected from electronics and reconnected to God’s creation, campers and parents are encouraged to use that old fashioned form of communication – the letter, to stay connected during camp. Camp staff receives training in safety, first aid, conflict resolution and community building, among other things. Our counselors’ help campers meet new friends and recognize the fingerprints of God all around us. Incentives 2018: Tuition increases February 28th (all camps).
