What's Included

This is an excellent opportunity to see our camp in action and spend quality time with the grand-kids. Make lasting memories. Swimming, short hikes, and crafts are topped off with campfires. Spend the night in the lodge and enjoy God's creation with us as your guide. Ages 6 to 10 w/grandparent 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) Sibling discount: $20 for all siblings (applies to one camp only) Work Camp discount: $50 off for attending a Church of the Brethren work camp (week long camps only).
