Kids & Youth

Camp Crossroads offers six weeks of traditional camps geared to the specific age of individual campers. Camp Crossroads is committed to introducing children and youth to the truth of Jesus though the unique opportunity of summer camp.

Each week incorporates elements of skill development, spiritual teaching, relationship building, and outdoor activity, with the program growing and expanding as the age group of each week is older:

*NEW for 2018: Please note that Kids Week will end on Friday afternoon rather than Saturday morning.  It will still begin on Sunday afternoon as in previous years.

  • Kids Week is an introductory week, intentionally structured for younger children that are still learning what the summer camp is all about.  Campers are introduced to all activities as a cabin group accompanied by their cabins leader.  In this way they experience many new things with that familiar group, without having to make big program choices.  Chapels are fun with simple gospel themes to allow campers to learn more about Jesus in a way that fits with the adventure of the rest of the camp day.  Our hope is that chapel is anticipated as much as a trip to go swimming.
  • Junior Week  offers a little more adventure and freedom.  The basic structure of the week is similar to Kids Week, but skills and activities are further developed for the older age group.  We’re able to offer an introductory Horsemanship program in Junior Week for an additional program fee.
  • Intermediate Week is the first week where campers have the chance to choose their own activities.  On Monday all campers are presented with skits from the various activity groups to help them choose the four programs they will participate in each day.  This allows the camp week to be more customized to the camper as their interests have become developed.  Campers can sign up with friends or individually to make new friends.    Intermediate week is the first week where campers are given the option to sign up for the Ski and Wake Boarding program in addition to Horsemanship program (for an extra fee).
  • Jr High Week continues to build in expanded program content for an older age group.  The specialized program options of Horsemanship and Waterskiing/Wakeboarding are available at an additional fee.  Special camp-wide group activities become larger and we create more time for deeper spiritual discussion.
  • Teen Week is similar to Junior High week in scheduling and programming (with the Horse and Waterskiing/Wakeboarding programs available at an additional fee), but staff tailor the creative content of the week to the growing maturity of the campers.  Deeper spiritual discussions continue to be an important focus in the week.
  • Youth Week we don’t hold back at all.  Whether a camper has come for many years or is experiencing camp for the first time Youth week is designed to be the highlight of the summer.   We allow for lots of social interaction and great fun.  Programs run full of rich skill engagement and also excitement.   We have various optional experiences that campers can sign up to do many of which are surprises that we don’t revel until the week arrives.

Chapels are a key part of each week. Cabin Bible studies & discussions, music and firesides give campers special worship experiences with their friends, cabin leaders and staff. Chapel leaders teach Bible lessons to the whole group each day.
