2022 Summer Camp - Registration is closed.


Summer can be an incredible adventure for your child! Canoeing, tubing, archery, hiking, "sleeping under the stars", outdoor cooking, crafts, river exploration, orienteering, mudding, fire building, basketball, volleyball, horseback riding, group games and so, so much more!


Our staff has a passion to see your camper grow closer to Christ. Each day devotions and chapel time provide music, skits, and inspiring messages that bring hope to each child.

If you like things just a little bit different, then this week is for you.  We’ve packed the week with perfectly safe yet amazing and unusual activities you’ll never forget.  This week includes the “Great American Shaving Cream Fight.”   There are all kinds of things to climb, bounce and race.  You’ll experience extreme activities in a safe, but really fun way and exciting way!
