Why Camp? The average child spends less than 30 minutes outside each day. Typical kids spend 4 hours a day playing video games, 4.5 hours watching TV and 82 minutes on a phone. Less than a third of teens get the recommended 60 minutes of physical activity.

Camp Is Powerful... Summer camp is a powerful experience that builds into a child’s growth, identity, and faith. A week at camp is 10,080 minutes of time spent outdoors - away from “the typical.” It’s an opportunity to learn, dream, and grow. register at 2

What Campers Say “The people and environment of this camp are amazing. God seems very connected here.” “I grew so much that I can’t even explain it.” “My counselors were great. They were loving, fun, helpful, and helped us learn about God in a good way.” “I feel like it gave me a better understanding of a Christian life and I also was blessed to make new friends.” “I now feel comfortable being myself even more” “I’ve been to a bunch of other camps, but this one ‘teached’ me the most about God.”
