Campers are part of an adventure group of up to eight youth and one college-age counselor. Christian community, making friends and cooperation are stressed, assuring that each camper is valued and encouraged. Counselors build a relationship with each camper nurturing their faith journey during the week they are at camp and beyond. Regular camp activities include the group interaction course, ropes courses, loop hike, rock slide, ice-cream making, singing, campfires, and so much more! Creative Bible study and worship are a part of each day’s schedule. Outdoor adventure programs include additional activities such as rafting, backpacking, caving, rockclimbing, and rappelling.
