What will I do at camp?

Every camper will attend Bible classes, chapel, worship services, and devotionals, as well as using low ropes elements, focusing on spiritual applications with their Bible class. Campers also participate in cookouts, sleepouts, talent shows, and cabin challenges. Campers will participate in half-day hikes and two-week campers will also participate in an all-day hike on the Friday midway through the session. Optional recreation will include fishing, nature hike, sports, handicrafts, archery and air riflery. We have an extensive ropes facility, including a “giant swing” and a zip line, administered by trained and licensed staff. Campers are required to assist with daily chores and dish washing. Our motto is “you don’t have to, you get to”.

Can I send/receive mail at camp?
Yes! As a cabin activity, campers will write a letter home on the second day of camp. Campers are also welcome to write additional letters as often as they wish.

Campers can also receive mail . Please DO NOT send any food… It attracts the wildlife to the cabins!! Allow 4-5 days for letters to reach their destinations. Address letters in the following way:

Can I leave camp early?
Campers should attend the entire session. It is disruptive to cabin unity and the camping experience to come late or leave early. Notify us prior to your session if there are extenuating circumstances.
