Camp is a place where lifelong friendships are made.

Summer Camp for Kids

Our Summer Camps are geared to be a fun, safe, and yet active experience for all ages of campers. Counselors are on duty 24/7 and stay in cabins with their campers. They spend the whole camp with these cabin groups, participating in activities and leading small group sessions.

Rookie Camp: Overnight or Day

June 9 - 11, 2021

For Grades: K-2 (just completed)

Rookie Camp is only a 3 day camp away from home so your child can ease into the camping experience. They will spend the whole camp with the same counselors so they feel safe and secure. Outdoor activities, making new friends, and learning about God in a fun and exciting way will make their week extra special! 

For kids who may not be ready to be away from home overnight, we offer a concurrent day camp option where you drop them off in the mornings and pick them up in the evenings - a great opportunity for kids to get used to camp.

Junior Camp

June 14 - 18, 2021

For Grades 3-4 (just completed)

Junior Camp is a week long experience where your child will enjoy all that camp has to offer; swimming, games, awesome Bible teaching, cabin time, and more! If they are just moving up from Rookie Camp, this is what they've been looking forward to ...staying a whole week!

Preteen Camp

June 14 - 18, 2021
