Our family camps are designed to give families a chance to enjoy all the experiences of camp together. The three different sessions throughout the summer follow a similar format. We provide structured and unstructured time for families to spend together enjoying nature and activities. We have two daily chapels with sessions geared to the specific age groups of adults, teens, young and older children. Each member of the family will be fed spiritually throughout the week.
Family Camp Three
There are a variety of activities to choose from in a week of Family Camp. Families are welcome to use our waterfront with the opportunity to relax on the sandy beach, swim in a safe area, or take a canoe, kayak or paddle board out for a paddle. We have two beach volleyball courts, as well as equipment for a 9 hole frisbee golf course, gagaball, basketball, baseball, soccer, horseshoes, shuffleboard, tether-ball, and more. Additional program options of water sports behind the power boat and/or horsemanship may be available for an extra fee once at Camp.
Our staff organize different activities for families and children of different ages. Activities like mountain biking, archery and organized games will be led to give participants a safe opportunity to learn a new skill or have some organized fun and get to know other families better. The craft hut will be open at times for both kids and adults. There is more information about the sessions toward the bottom of this page.
Dates and Rates for 2019 (Rates include all taxes!)
Pricing is all-inclusive for families. The only things you need to bring are bedding, towels and your own personal effects (and a trailer or tent if you choose to camp on-site).
Please note: Accommodations are selected just once per family during the registration process. However, each individual within the family needs to be registered individually so that we can plan accommodations and child supervision accordingly. Please contact the office at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
Two families that would like to share accommodation should register separately. One family would select a type of accommodation they would like to share, the other family would not select a type of accommodation. Each family would register all members of their family and note which family they are sharing with when prompted by the registration process.
Grandparents can register as an independent family and request to share with their family or they can be registered in one household with the family they’re accompanying.
