Our offerings include over 30 programs for children and youth, ages 6-18, which vary in length from a couple of days to a week long. In addition to all of the “camp favorites” like swimming, arts and crafts, basketball, volleyball, and hiking, we offer tons of unique activities!
We are currently working on the program offerings for Summer 2020.
Camp gives children a solid foundation that lasts a lifetime, and equips youth for success at school, at home, at church, and in the world by building them up and giving them the gifts of confidence, faith in God, and a healthy self-esteem. We focus on allowing campers to learn by doing. Everything at camp is interactive and intentional encouraging campers to get involved and explore their interests.
Our programs are run by a group of people who are passionate about the effect they can have on a lives of the campers in their care. Whether staff or volunteer, these loving people are the key to a positive camping experience. All are chosen for their maturity, personal integrity, skills, patience, and desire to be Christian role models for youth, and share in the spirit of fun and excitement at camp. Staff and volunteers fill out an application, sign a disclosure statement, provide references and have a full background check. Applicants are carefully screened and, if chosen, supervised by camping professionals. Both staff and volunteers undergo valuable training in health and safety, child development, teaching methods, and group dynamics.
The faith message we send is a message that encourages youth to grow in their love and knowledge of Jesus Christ. An essential part of the camp experience is spiritual growth - gaining a better understanding of what it means to be a Christian in relationship to God, to others, and to the environment. While we are an official extension of The United Methodist Church, we have found that many of our campers come from other churches or have no church affiliation. Adult leaders are sensitive to the differing backgrounds represented, while striving to make the Christian life real by presenting God’s word and love as shown in Jesus Christ. Programs are designed to be age appropriate and include music, worship, drama, Bible exploration, and prayer.
We believe in what we do. Our staff strives to make a difference because they have had similar experiences as children. Camp is fun and gives youth wonderful gifts. We know because we were once those youth.
